Hewlett-Packard announces new tablet HP 8

PanARMENIAN.Net - Hewlett-Packard has quietly announced a new tablet, HP 8, TechCrunch reports.

The HP 8 employs a 7.85-inch screen with a 1,024 x 768 resolution, which is a few pixels less than what’s found in competitor’s tablets. Inside, there is a quad-core chip, 1GB of RAM, and a rather small 3,800mAh battery.

HP is sticking to the smaller tablet size. The company launched the HP Slate 7last year, which was cheap and likely allowed HP to get into the tablet game on the cheap. The HP 8 is more of the same in an updated package. HP likely doesn’t expect this to increase the company’s tablet marketshare, but rather test the waters while remaining active in this important market, TechCrunch says.

The HP 8 costs $170. At that price, it competes with the original (and dated) Amazon Kindle Fire and budget Samsung devices.
