HP 7 Plus tablet lets you join the quad-core party for just $99


If you spend under $100 on a tablet, chances are it’s not going to be very good. It’ll do the basics and allow you to run apps like Facebook and Twitter, but playing the latest games would be out of the question. HP is hoping to change that with the 7 Plus.

For just $99, this 7-inch slate packs a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage. HP promises “it’s got responsiveness that delivers entertainment where you want it.”

The 7 Plus, which first made its debut in Europe a few months ago, is gracing the U.S. market in an effort to bridge the gap between budget-but-baloney tablets with teeny-tiny price tags and those that will have you breaking the bank for the latest and greatest specifications.

It doesn’t have spectacular hardware, but it does have capable hardware; its quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM will allow users to enjoy Android’s most popular titles with the minimum of fuss, while the microSD card slot lets you carry all of the media you’ll ever need when you’re on the go.

The 7 Plus also has a 7-inch display with a 1024×600 resolution, a built-in accelerometer, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a 2,800mAh battery that promises up to five hours of use in between charges.
