HP 7 Plus : $100 Quad Core Tablet From HP Now Sold in The US?
A few months ago, HP introduced a low cost Android tablet in Europe, and they have now decided to release it in the United States at an unbelievable price of US$ 100 dollars. The HP 7 Plus is a not a top of the line tablet, but it packs a Quad Core processor which is awesome for its price.?
For only US$ 100 dollars, Americans can now avail of a Quad Core tablet from HP. The HP 7 Plus can now be ordered in the United States at HP.com. Although tech analysts are quick to concede that the HP 7 Plus will not win any awards for design or performance, they point out that for the price level, the specs provided by the HP 7 Plus are worth every cent, and more.
The tablet, which boasts of a quad core processor and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean can be used for 5 ? hours till the battery runs out.
For a quick look at the specs of the HP 7 Plus, here it is:
- Display : 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel IPS
- Processor: 1 GHz Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex-A7
- Operating System: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
- 1GB SDRAM
- 8GB storage + microSD card slot

To add to these more than satisfactory specs, HP is also throwing in a free 25GB lifetime cloud storage with a cloud service box and Kingsoft Office software.
As expected, the HP 7 Plus is certified by Google and has built in access to the Google Play Store.
Although HP offers other devices that packs more power and features (from US$ 150 dollars up), the HP 7 Plus provides customers with an affordable device that can provide basic tablet functions for the average user.
Other tablets, like the Google Nexus 7 is considered the best ?bang for your buck? by many analysts, but the price range of US$ 229 dollars, may be a bit too much for the budget of most customers.
The coming of the US$ 100 dollar HP 7 Plus highlights the continuing price affordability of many devices, without sacrificing specs and performance.
This makes us wonder if tablet makers such as Samsung, LG and other Android device companies, will follow suit, and give the HP 7 Plus some competition in the ?dirt-cheap? tablet market.
