HP Selling a 7-inch Android Tablet for a Mere $100

By - Source: Liliputing | B 10 comments

Here's a decent tablet for those on a strict budget.

Hewlett Packard has quietly launched the HP 7 Plus Android tablet, packing an Allwinner A31 Cortex-A7 quad-core processor clocked at 1 GHz, Android 4.2.2 "Jelly Bean," and a mean price to boot: $99.99 USD. The tablet first went on sale in Europe and is now finally available in the United States.

According to a list of specs, the tablet provides a 7-inch IPS multi-touch screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution. The tablet also contains 1 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD port for up to 32 GB of extra storage, and a 2800 mAh lithium polymer battery promising up to 5 hours and 30 minutes on a single charge.

The specs also show that the tablet provides Wireless N connectivity (Miracast compatible), an integrated microphone and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. There's also a 0.3MP fixed focus front facing camera, and a 2MP fixed focus camera on the back. The tablet measures 7.58 x 4.8 x 0.32 inches and weighs a mere 0.65 pounds.

A list of highlights include Kingsoft Office, HP Connected Photo powered by Snapfish, Box and HP ePrint, the latter of which allows users to print "from virtually anywhere." The Kingsoft Office suite lets users access, edit and share documents using Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets applications.

    BFD... You can get the ASUS Memo Pad HD 7 for $100.00 and it has better specs. Quad Core 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB System Mem, 8GB Storage, Micro SD Card Slot (up to 32GB), and a 1280 x 800 resolution screen.

    Piece of crap. Totally different from their Slate 7 Extreme which is decidedly not a piece of crap. More money does in fact buy you less crap. With tech, that's a good thing.

    I'm a computer geek, and don't own a tablet and have no interest in one. What's weird is every single member of my family has one (sister, brother-in-law, dad..).

    Also, every single person I know rarely uses them.

    What's even worse is the cost of phones. I pay $100 (CDN) per year for a basic phone and plan. I know several people who pay $60 per month and have for at least SIX years.

    That's over $4000!

    (I used to carry around a quarter for a payphone and average 50 cents per month)

    A Tegra 3 is slowwwwww, compared to the A31, the RK3188, or any of the newer generation quad cores. Tegra 3 is only about a 12 gigaflop GPU, where as the SGX544MP in the A31 is about 23 gigaflops, so quite a difference.

    You're talking about the allwinner a10 or a13 maybe, the a31 in this tablet is far more powerful and advanced, and you can definitely not get it for 40$. It's a decent tablet for a decent price, naturally going higher in price would get you a better one.
