Abstract: We present a classification of 267 new variable B-type stars discovered by Hipparcos. We have used two different classification schemes and they both result in only a few new beta Cephei stars, a huge number of new slowly pulsating B stars, quite some supergiants with alpha Cyg-type variations and variable CP stars, and further some new periodic Be stars and eclipsing binaries. Our results clearly point out the biased nature towards short-period variables of earlier, ground-based surveys of variable stars.
