HP unveils nearly 8-inch Android tablet HP has quietly unveiled another Android tablet this week, dubbed the HP 8.
The new Android device has a 7.85 inch screen and will sell for just $170.

Besides its cheap price, there isn't too much to like about the tablet. This display has a 1,024 x 768 resolution, the devices runs on Android 4.2.2, and is powered by a quad-core Allwinner ARM chip and 1GB RAM.

The tablet has 3800mAh battery for 5-7 hours of use and 16GB internal storage with a microSD slot. There are two cameras, but at 0.3MP and 2MP they are not too functional.

HP has quietly returned to the mobile hardware market, unveiling the VoiceTab devices for the Indian market recently and other "Slate" devices.

They still trying with this android and tablet thing? Its bad enough that they seem to be sneaking these products on the market as it is. I hope it isn't costing them much and could be used for a good low level entry tablet if anything.
