HTC's 7-inch tablet to have quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, two SIM slots

HTC's 7-inch tablet to have quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, two SIM slots
Not long ago, we passed along rumors of HTC working on a low-end 7-inch tablet. Codenamed H7, the device is going to follow HTC's small legacy of tablets, which is comprised by the Flyer, Jetstream, EVO View, and most recently, the Google Nexus 9. We now have some new intel on the HTC 7-incher, as the device and its spec sheet appeared in India's public import-export online database Zauba. 

Described as a sample for research and development, the device packs a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and two SIM slots. These are the typical makings of a budget device, save perhaps for the dual SIM slots. Cellular connectivity is still uncommon among cheap tablets. The device will most likely run Android Lollipop, and its per-unit price that's listed inside the database is around $150. This means the H7 will target a sub-$200 price point upon its eventual release. 

Speaking of that, we don't know anything with respect to the eventual release date, but HTC probably won't be keeping the tab under wraps for too long, now that it's all configured, assembled, and being flown across the border.

1GB of RAM in a tablet is just sad...

That's HTC. They'll always ruin something. Hope it is 2GB on final product.

HTC is going to pack 1GB of RAM, some Mediatek chipset they find in the parts bin . They fail to make products people want , instead they make stuff their shareholders want

Shareholders want money......Something HTC hasn't been good at making in quite some time. They could careless about the actual product.

There's 1gig in my $100 windows tablet an I'm definitely not complaining... and this HTC tab will run android so that's fair for what you're paying(I'd still recommend the hp stream 7 over this in the end though).

Why not equip it with a Tegra 4 or K1, can't be all that expensive, much faster too than what they are putting in it now.

This is honestly the worst idea HTC has had in a long time. Low end tablets do not sell well, the market is saturated.
