Hewlett-Packard and Intel are teaming up to produce a very cheap tablet, named HP Mesquite Tablet that will be available starting Friday November 29 at Walmart just in time to kick off the holiday season. The starting price for the 7-inch tablet is only $89 and it will come with Android for the operating system with a Intel processor.
The Mesquite Tablet from HP is suppose to be just one of a couple of different Intel slates that will be releasing on Black Friday. These slates are supposed to have extraordinary battery life and what the company calls “lightening fast Web browsing.”
From the news floating around this HP Mesquite will pack the MedField Atom processor from Intel as the chip giant mentioned that they have several more Windows and Android tablets set to hit the mark on Friday after Thanksgiving that will be along with other sales and promotions.
This HP Android tablet will be one of many that will be at a huge discount for the holiday season. Though this tablet will have an Intel chip its not going to be the best chip that the company has to offer. To make sure the company is able to hit the sub $100 mark we are sure that some of the applications and graphics performance that Intel is currently producing will be left out.
If you are in the market for a tablet and don’t want to break the bank HP Mesquite Tablet might be what you need especially if you are buying it as a gift for someone. It will have the basic functions that most other tablets out there and it is produced by HP with Android and an Intel chip. Hard to go wrong there.
Are you thinking about the HP Mesquite tablet? Well if you are looking for tablets under $100 you can bet that this will be just one of many offered throughout the rest of the year as companies and vendors look to capitalize on the holiday season. If you are not too concern about brand, the $80 NextBook Premium NX007HD8G 7 inch tablet is also one of a good alternative.
