HP has slashed the price of their affordable tablet, the HP Slate 7, by as much as $30, making the value proposition of this budget tablet shoot through my apartment's roof. A 7" dual-core tablet with 1 GB of RAM running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for just $140 is no joke.
HP Slate 7 specifications:
- 1.6 GHz Dual-Core ARM Cortex A9 CPU
- 1 GB RAM
- 7" WSVGA (1024 x 600) Display
- 8 GB Internal Storage
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
While the original price of the 8 GB model was at $170, the same amount of money will get you a 16 GB version of the tablet instead. The tablet looks good, packs a nice specification set and even comes with Android Jelly Bean. $140 is a value proposition, especially when considering this is no cheap Chinese tablet.
