Well, not quite. But close.
HP is launching a 7-inch HP Stream 7 tablet for just $99, and an 8-inch version for $149 in November. Both are powered by Intel chipsets, but the company isn’t revealing any additional specifications for this pair of super low-cost Windows tablets. They’re likely to be very low specification devices, but Microsoft is also throwing in a year-long subscription to Office 365 Personal with 1TB of OneDrive storage and 60 minutes of Skype calls each month. HP’s 8-inch tablet also includes 200MB of free LTE data each month with no contract for the life of the device.
No specs cited.
But I’d bet that by the time they get in the few stores that will still allow HP in, China will have superior tablets for the same damn price. I wouldn’t be surprised if the CUBE iWork 7 already matches the un-specced HP tablet, and it’s just US$65.
HP, still How Pathetic.
