The $99 budget tablet HP 7 Plus has now found its way to Amazon and retail stores in the US if you want to check it out yourself.
The HP 7 Plus had been available outside the US for months, and became available for order on HP on May 7.
This tablet is a 7-inch budget tablet that ships with Android 4.2, a 1GHz quad-core A4 ARM Cortex A7 processor, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 8GB of memory, and 1024×600 resolution.
Other low specs include a 2800mAh battery that last for 5 1/2 hours, a 0.3MP front camera coupled with a 2MP rear camera, and a mono speaker. So this is no Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HDX 7 then.
The difference between buying the HP 7 Plus on HP and Amazon, is that buying it on Amazon gives you the right to return it if you come to your senses, while you are stuck with it if you buy it from HP.
For the time being, it’s also possible to get the HP 7 Plus for $85, if you enter the coupon code “SLICK15HP” at checkout at HP.
Other tablets in the $99 – $109 range (that are better even), are HP Slate 7, Lenovo IdeaTab A1000, and Barnes & Noble Nook HD.
