HP is gearing up for the holiday season with six new tablets that should have you covered whatever you’re looking for. In an announcement made earlier today, the company unveiled four new Android slates, including two updated versions of the company’s original Slate 7 and its first eight and 10-inch entries into the market. HP also introduced two new Windows devices, the Pavilion 11 x2 and the Omni 10.

Let’s start with the Android tablets. The Slate 8 Pro is HP’s first 8-inch tablet, with an aspect ratio of 4:3, a Tegra 4 processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front camera and a pixel resolution of 1600 x 1200. The Slate 7 Extreme also boasts a Tegra 4 processor, as well as its own stylus and a 1280 x 800-pixel display. Then there’s the new Slate 7 HD and Slate 10 HD, which offer different screen sizes but the same specs, including a 1280 x 800-pixel IPS display, dual-core processor, Beats Audio and 4G connectivity.

Now for the Windows devices. HP’s Pavilion 11 x2 is a tablet-notebook hybrid with a detachable keyboard and an Intel processor under the hood. It’s also got 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768-pixel display. The new HP Pavilion comes in three colors and launches on November 17 for $599 with the keyboard included. Finally, there’s the Omni 10, which is set to be one of the first tablets to ship running Windows 8.1. It also boasts 64GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080-pixel display.
