HP enters the $100 tablet game with the 7 Plus

It looks like HP is learning a thing or two from Motorola. The company has quietly unveiled the HP 7 Plus, a $100 tablet that’s guaranteed to take it easy on your wallet.

The 7 Plus comes equipped with a 7-inch 1024 x 600 pixel screen that’s flanked by pretty beefy bezels, though their practical usage could nullify that. It is powered by an Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex A7 quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. The tablet comes with 8GB of internal storage, though the MicroSD card slot allows for up to 32GB of additional storage. You will find a 2-megapixel camera on the back and a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front.

Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n keeps the 7 Plus connected to the world, while the 28oomAh battery gives the tablet up to 5 hours and 30 minutes of battery life. Finally, while Bluetooth is absent, the tablet is powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

While it’s easy to scoff at the specifications, it seems to represent a great alternative for those with tight budgets or for those who have kids and wish to buy it for entertainment purposes.
