The Mobile World Congress (MWC) may have barely started but HP has already announced one of the biggest surprises -- a $169 Android 4.1 tablet that looks set to compete against Apple's iPad mini and Amazon's Kindle Fire.

Following reports that Meg Whitman’s company is to return to the consumer tablet market with new Android tablets just last week, the firm did just that by announcing a 7-inch Jelly Bean tablet ahead of MWC.

The new model is called the Slate 7 and carries the kind of features you’d expect from a sub-$200 tablet.

There is a 1024 x 600 resolution capacitive touchscreen display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of memory, while the model is WiFi-only (it only supports 2.4GHz 802.11n) and has dual-facing cameras.

The Slate 7 sports a 1.6GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor and also has a neat functionality for users to wirelessly print from most apps over WiFi and HP’s ePrint technology.  Beats audio also comes included, while the tablet has a microSD card slot for expanding storage.

HP has said that the tablet will launch in April and will be showcased at the Mobile World Congress this week.  TabTimes is reporting live from the show.
