The HP 7 Plus Android Tablet Only Costs $99 Dylan Duarte May 22, 2014 There are budget tablets and then there’s the HP 7 Plus, which could probably be sold alongside sticky hands and bouncy balls in those machines next to supermarket exit doors. I kid! Sort of. Like most budget tablets, the HP 7 Plus comes without the fancy bells and whistles, but it still delivers a functioning tablet at an affordable price. In this case, that price is only $99. HP has been focusing pretty heavily on budget tablets and it must be working out pretty well for them in this post-TouchPad era if they’re still doing it. The Android-powered HP 7 Plus will get you a 7-inch 1024 x 600 screen, 1GB of RAM, a Power VR SGX544MP2 GPU, and an Allwinner Technology A31 SoC with four Cortex A7 cores clock at 1GHz. You’ll also get 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 2 MP rear camera, a fairly pointless 0.3 MP front camera, a microUSB 2.0 slot, and a battery that’ll run five hours. In layman’s terms, this is not a powerful machine, but it is $99. I really don’t know who this is supposed to appeal to, because for less than $100 more you can pick up some pretty capable tablets, especially if you look at older models of some of the more popular devices. Still, the HP 7 Plus can be had for a double-digit price tag, so I suppose that’s impressive in its own right, even if it doesn’t come with free 4G data for life like its $229 HP Slate 7HD cousin from Walmart. via TechCrunch, Softpedia Share This With The World!
