HP has launched yet another affordable Android tablet in the US market, the 7 Plus, which is retailing for a very alluring price of just $99.99. The slate comes with pretty decent specs, akin to what you’ll find on most budget-friendly devices, and for the said price, it’s a good choice if you’re looking for your first Android tablet.
Now, the HP 7 Plus is not to be mistaken for the Slate 7 Plus that’s also available in the US. The latter tablet is retailing for $149.99 and it’s based on the Tegra 3 chipset from Nvidia. The device in question has been on sale in Europe for quite some time, notes Liliputing, and it offers Android 4.2 Jelly Bean through a 7-inch 1024 x 600p IPS touchscreen.
Design-wise, the slate doesn’t have much to boast about and it comes in a single color, white. HP has fitted it with dual cameras, a VGA webcam on the front and a 2MP shooter on the rear. Delivering the steam is a quad core Allwinner A31 processor based on the Cortex A7 and it’s clocked at 1GHz. The battery here is a disappointment. The 2800mAh cell is a bit small for a tablet and it’s capable of delivering only 5.5 hours of activity.
If you’re interested in the 7 Plus, you can purchase a unit through the company’s online store or various retailers across the US. HP is also offering various pre-loaded features with the tablet including its ePrint app for wireless printing, free 25GB of lifetime Box storage and Kingsoft Office amongst others.
Here’s an overview of the specs:
– 7-inch WSVGA IPS touchscreen
– Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
– 1GB RAM, 8GB storage
– Quad core 1GHz Cortex A7 CPU
– 2800mAh battery
