HP’s recent split has been the talk of the town this week but that isn't the only thing new with the company. The Silicon Valley titan has quietly unveiled a new 10-inch tablet powered by Android.
The HP 10 Plus features a 10.1-inch HD display operating at a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200. It’s powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 chip clocked at a modest 1GHz alongside 2GB of system RAM and 16GB of onboard storage (expandable via microSD card slot).
The slate also packs a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, a micro USB 2.0 port, a 3.5mm headphone jack with microphone support, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, accelerometer, GPS and a 7,700mAh battery that’s good for up to six hours of runtime on a single charge.
One feature that’s particularly noteworthy is the front-facing stereo speakers which are ideally positioned on either side of the screen for media intake.
The tablet measures 10.43 x 6.89 x 0.37 inches and tips the scales at 1.46 pounds. It comes loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box.
Aesthetically, the HP 10 Plus looks pretty nice although it’s a little on the thick side. The one glaring shortcoming with the slate, however, is the SoC which Android Police claims is an Allwinner A31 chip. The battery life could also be a bit better but otherwise, we’re looking at a pretty decent tablet.
The HP 10 Plus is available for purchase as of writing for $279.99.
