The Amazon Kindle Fire and the Google Nexus 7 initiated the inflow of mid range and economical tablets in the market. At once, low in budget but high in performance tablet became available everywhere under the price of $400 and suddenly the tablet manufacturers developed a hype of competition by offering their product at lower prices than their competitors; though it goes to the benefit of the customers. The impact of low price sale of their products is not going to have a serious adverse effect on the industry as a whole. In this hype and flood of tablet, all qualities of the devices have made their easy access to the market and many such low grade tablets are also selling in this competition.
HP decided to make the affordable tablets devices because they have realized that quite a few manufactures cannot stand in the competition from high performance tablets. Keeping this in view HP has released low price but reasonable in performance tablets. However releasing the prices does not mean reducing the quality and the performance of their products.
HP 7 Plus has been released by HP as a challenge product in the market with a very low price as $99.99; infect half of the price of Nexus 7 just in the hype of competition. Well if it is low priced it has some compromise on the features as well. It has 7 inches display with 1024×600 resolutions and 1GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of memory with a microSD card, powered with 2,800 mAh battery, having 2 cameras; 2 megapixel rear camera and 0.3 megapixel fixed focus front camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. That’s not very impressive though still quite reasonable in this price.
