Two new Android tablets by Hewlett Packard have recently appeared in France. HP 7 G2 and HP 8 G2 are both entry-level devices with a few attractive highlights, especially their screens that use IPS technology and the inclusion of a microSD slot in the list of technical specifications.

Both tablets mentioned above have similar features and specs, as you can see below:

  • Processor: 1.2 GHz Allwinner A33 quad-core
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage (7 G2) or 16 GB (8 G2), microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 7-inch with 1,280X720 pixels or 7.85-inch with 1,024X768 pixels, both LED-backlit IPS
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 2 MP back
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 LE combo, GPS, micro USB 2.0
  • Operating system: Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 9 ounces or 13.1 ounces; 7.4X4X0.34 inches or 8X5.4X0.32 inches

HP 7 G2 and HP 8 G2 also come loaded with a rich collection of software. Next to HP's own Connected Photo app, the full Google suite has been included as well - Gmail, Google+, Google Maps, Google Play Store, Google Talk, Google Sync, Google Chrome and Google Street View, but also Skype, YouTube and Adobe Reader.

Once these two slates reach the US market, their prices will probably be similar to the existing HP 7 Plus and HP 8 Plus. The 7 G2 sells in France for roughly $145 USD, while the larger 8 G2 has a price of about $230 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
