Soon after the VoiceTab phablets announced at MWC, HP now brings the 8-inch Android tablet for $170

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.
