    Do you guys remember when HP launched the HP Touchpad a few years ago? We even had a website for it at one time. One of the most intriguing things about the device was that it was only $99 bucks for a limited time when HP decided to eliminate inventory. People snapped it up in droves. We doubt that will happen with HP's newest $100 dollar tablet, but it still should see a decent measure of success.

    HP just announced their HP 7 Plus Android tablet for only $99.99. Here's a spec breakdown:
    • 7-inch 1,024×600 touchscreen
    • 1 GHz quad-core processor (with ARM Cortex-A7 cores)
    • 1 GB of RAM
    • 8 GB of internal storage
    • A microSD card slot
    • 2 MP rear camera
    • 0.3 MP front camera
    • Wi-Fi 802.11n
    • 2,800 mAh battery
    • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
    As you can see, it isn't going to be winning any awards for extreme performance, but that's obviously not its target market. At just 100 clams, this could be a decent value proposition for those looking to replace an aging early gen Android tablet. I wonder if HP can rekindle that magic they briefly had with the HP Touchpad...

    HP was reasonably successful with the low-cost Rockchip powered HP Slate 7. The maker seems to have liked the idea of sourcing low-cost SoC’s from China-based fabricators; this time, we have a tablet running on an Allwinner A31.

    The HP 7 Plus is now being offered for $85 after a $15 coupon.

    In a sign of desperation or simply in an effort to jumpstart initial sales, Hewlett-Packard is already discounting the HP 7 Plus. Using the code SLICK15HP during checkout, customers can knock an additional $15 off the price of the tablet — shipping is also free.
