HP is out of ideas and this race to the bottom will kill them.

Their android tablets are not selling well because of nexus 7.

I might buy it after the month week of sales and HP drops the price to $25. HP seriously can't do anything right as of late..

Well, you have to hand it to them. In the light of consistant failure in the mobile electronics market they certainly are persistant...albeit foolishly...
