The HP 7 Plus is a powerful tablet – big on performance, got a slim design and small on price for $99.99. The 7 plus is a quad core powered and sports a 7 inch screen; unfortunately it runs on the Android 4.2 OS which seems pretty outdated as of today.

Do not confuse the HP 7 plus with the HP slate7 Plus, the slate7 plus was launched in 2013 and the 7 plus was launched a few days back. The 7 Plus as mentioned sports a 7 inch screen with 1024 600 pixels resolution. Screen is LCD IPS with multi point touch support.

There is no SIM slot – the tablet runs on Android 4.2.2 with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. There is a micro SD card slot that will support cards of up to 32GB. This tab is powered by 1 GHz cortex A7 quad core processor (Allwinner A31 chipset). Weight is 294 grams and it’s 8.1 mm thick.

There is only one sensor – the accelerometer. Key features are Wi-Fi (b/g/n) and micro USB port. There are dual cameras a VGA on the front and 2MP on the rear, it can record videos at low resolution.

A 2800 mAh Li-po battery powers up the tablet with an estimated usage time of up to 4 – 5 hours. No word as to when the tab will be available in India or the it’s price in India – it could probably be priced under Rs. 7,000.
