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

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.
