Ultra-cheap HP 7 Plus tablet launched in the US
HP today released a new Android tablet in the US, making it the company’s cheapest slate ever. Called HP 7 Plus, the tablet can be bought for only $99.99.

According to HP, the 7 Plus has “got responsiveness that delivers entertainment where you want it.” It’s similar in design to the HP 8 that was launched in March, while also sharing some of its features.

The HP 7 Plus runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and obviously sports a 7-inch display (with a low-density pixel resolution of 600 x 1,024). The tablet further offers Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, a 2MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, quad-core Allwinner A31 (ARM Cortex A7) processor clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. A 2,800 Li-Po battery is included.

Like the HP 8, the HP 7 Plus is offered with free 25GB lifetime cloud storage from Box. You can buy the 7 Plus tablet via HP’s online store at the source link below (it looks like it’s available only in silver, with no other color options being announced).

Especiially since kitkat was designed to run smoother on low end devices. Kitkat actually made my Galaxy tab 2 usable.

My Touchpad is still kicking it as my primary tablet running Cyanogenmod 9. In fact I sold an iPad 2 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 and just kept my HP Touchpad. I still haven't found a tablet that sounds better.

Compare this to their first Android tablet, the Slate 7, and there's not much of a difference. They added a FFC, bumped up to a quad-core processor and went to 4.2 instead of 4.1. Still nothing to go nuts about. At least it's a step up from other budget tablets like the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, which is close in specs but goes for nearly $60 more.

Too bad they didn't add in GSM connectivity. I would have bought it immediately
