HP Launches 3 Android Tablets in China Under the Compaq Brand

HP expanded their tablet empire into China today with the launch of a trio of familiar looking tablets. The Compaq 7, 7+, and Compaq 8 feature Allwinner A31s quad-core processors and run Google Android 4.2 software, and at least one model bears a striking resemblance to a well-known tablet made by a fruit company.

The tablets all come with 1GB RAM, a pair of cameras (VGA webcam, 2MP rearcam), and Wifi. I can also add that the CPU on the Compaq 7+ has a clock speed of 1GHz, and that it appears to have an 8 core Power VR GPU. The specs for this tablet also mention 16GB storage, and a microSD card slot.

Screen resolution varies between the tablets, with the Compaq 7 having a cheap 7" 1024 x 600 resolution TN display. The Compaq 7+ is listed as having a similar resolution but a higher quality IPS display, and the screen resolution on the Compaq 8 is 1024 x 768.

I can't find a price for the Compaq 8, but the Compaq 7 is listed at 999 yuan ($164 USD), with the Compaq 7+ coming in at a slightly pricier 1,399 yuan ($230).

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
