It looks like HP decided to quietly launch an 8-inch tablet in the US. And a budget one at that, with a price that comes a cent short of $170. The new HP 8 1401 has a 7.85-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1024x768 and runs on an Allwinner quad-core chip, paired with 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage. It has a pair of cameras as well, with the front being 0.3MP and the rear - 2MP. The battery life is rated at 7 hours of usage, with battery capacity coming in at 3800mAh. Finally, the operating system is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The HP 8 1401 tablet comes with a lifetime 25GB of free cloud storage in Box, and HP offers free shipping in the US.

With such a low resolution front and rear camera whats to like about this thing. The only people that will buy this is people without a clue. People who like HP and have no tech knowledge about product specification regarding this and competitive products.

Once the consumer finds that HP is selling cheap junk they will stop buying just like they do when they buy their desktop units TOO BAD SINCE THEY HAVE A NICE BRAND NAME BUT GREEDY CEO'S TOOK THEM DOWN FOR THE ALL MIGHTY BONUS!

Anyone that offers the this offer the Nexus 7 really hates their customers , and really loves HP.
