That’s according to Engadget in Spain [Google Translate]:
Update: HP has contacted us to alert us of a recent price change yesterday, at the time of publishing this analysis, it was still not effective on its official website.

If they were to drop the price here to US$249, that might set off a feeding frenzy among those of us who haven’t yet chosen a tablet but understand the Tegra 4 in the Slate 8 Pro breathes fire — despite the 1GB of RAM.
Thanks to Ian in Comments who alerted me to: Nieuwe versie HP Slate 8 Pro met Android 4.4 KitKat gespot [Google Translate].
HP is really messing with my head. Just when I thought it was safe to write off the existing Slate 8 Pro as a non-buy, this happens.
As it turns out, the FCC listing isn’t needed at all.
HP has already outed this tablet!
