HP quietly launches the HP 8.

Hewlett Packard is following a different strategy when it comes to the Android market and is working towards a flanking maneuver in thie regard; there have been constant low profile launches of low cost devices which are powered by Android. Only recently the VoiceTab phablets were unveiled at the MWC during a side show and soon after that we have7.85-inch tablet called the HP 8 which has a more traditional look to it.

This plain looking device has been priced at $170 which seems quite fair as a price tag and talking of the outer shape, it is much like Slate 7 which was launched last year. But these comparisons are not for all the specs and features since the new HP 8 has a display which is worse last year's Slate 7 and also Dell's rival Venue 8. The reason is fewer pixels spread over a larger surface (the resolution is merely 1,024 x 768). But you also cant complain much considering the price you are paying for it. Talking of the internal features, it has Android 4.2.2 which runs on a quad-core ARM chip made by the Chinese company Allwinner. It has 1 GB in RAM and 16 GB of expandable storage.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
