So far HP's Android tablets have been somewhat unremarkable, with the arguable exception of the Pro Slate series. Despite a lukewarm response from consumers and retailers, it looks like the company is ready to release at least one more model. A new tablet called the HP 10 G2 has been hanging out with both the FCC and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, and spotted by Liliputing. Based on the "10 G2" name and photos, it looks like a relatively low-cost follow-up to the original HP 10.

Specs are sparse, but we do know it uses a MediaTek MT8127A 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The photos also seem to suggest a 10-inch screen running Android and a MicroSD card slot. Otherwise it's a standard slate with an apparent 4:3 aspect ratio, dual cameras, and (probably) on-screen navigation keys. Resolution isn't mentioned (the FCC and Bluetooth SIG don't care about that particular spec), but given the low-cost chipset, I'd bet on either 1024x768 or 1600x1200.

Remember that simply getting a gadget certified doesn't mean it's destined for release - we see plenty of phones and tablets pass through the FCC without ever getting a US launch. But considering this one has been certified by two different groups, and HP's relatively limited mobile footprint, I would expect the 10 G2 to hit store shelves sometime before the holiday shopping rush. We'll see. For reference, the original HP 10 is still being sold for $250.
