7.85 inch display and Android 4.2.2 in this latest effort

HP has quietly released another mid-range Android tablet – that’s actually on sale now – that like previous efforts fails somewhat to capture our imagination. The HP 8 has a 7.85-inch display at 1024×768, an Allwinner quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. There’s also a microSD card slot, and a pair of cameras that are pretty forgettable at 2MP and 0.3MP respectively.

The specs don’t ignite any excitement then, but as with the Slate 7 the HP 8 does at least have an affordable(ish) price tag attached to it. It’s currently on sale for $ 169.99, but even at that it’d be a tough sell over the Nexus 7 or even Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
