The competition in the budget tablet market is increasing day-by-day. Recently, HP unveiled its budget-friendly HP 7 Plus, targeting the budget-conscious users. The tablet comes with entry-level specifications, but with an attractive $99 price tag, which is well worth the features it offers.
HP 7 Plus comes with a 7-inch diagonal WVA IPS multitouch-enabled sporting a resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels. Under the hood is a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A7 with 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage with a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage. There’s a 2,800 mAh battery to make sure there’s enough juice for the tablet. The company claims it can give users an average battery time of over five hours, but we’ll find out more about it once we get our hands on the tablet.
Other features include a 2MP rear camera for photos and videos with a 0.3MP front-facing camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, Miracast compatibility, one micro USB 2.0 port, integrated accelerometer, headphone jack, internal microphone and runs the good old Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as its operating system out of the box. The tablet measures 7.58 x 4.8 x 0.32 in and weighs only 0.65lbs.
The tablet is currently out of stock at the online HP store, but if you’re interested, you may want to try your luck at the big retailers across the country. For $99, the tablet is not too bad after all, and may turn out to be a gadget which budget-conscious users could gift to their kids or relatives.
