The HP 8 1401 is the new tablet of eight inches of the U.S company. A computer of Android with a compact format that is placed within the input range, but with a very careful design in white below the 8 millimeters thick and a series of specifications that make it an excellent option for those users who are looking for a team below the 200 euros. And there are some arguments that this tablet will include a battery capable of providing up to 18 hours of continuous video playback (according to data from the U.S. Company), an internal memory of 16 GB or quad-core processor to run with fluent combination of menus and system applications. We tell you all the details of this equipment in a thorough analysis.
In the field of design we find a remarkable advancement of the American company, which in this team away from a more sober design of other models to get into more modern forms. In particular, it is interesting the use of white in the model and in the disappearance of any physical button on the front. Instead, we will find the full name of the superimposed at the bottom mark. Yes, the use of aluminum and the metal brand logo on the housing is maintained. This bet is further reinforced with rather slender forms. The dimensions of HP 8 1401 are 136.3 x 200.3 x 7.95 mm. Thick is that has nothing to envy of the biggest releases in the market. Moreover, the weight of 315 grams facilitates its grip during longer periods of time.
HP has included a touch IPS panel with a size of 7.85 inches and a resolution of 1 024 x 768 pixels. Without reaching the numbers of the most powerful computers on the market, this resolution will allow us to view the contents of a tablet acceptable level of detail. Of course, where else can notice the limitation of this panel is playing movies and videos in high quality. Using an IPS screen will allow us to enjoy brilliant images and a good viewing angle of 178 degrees both horizontally and vertically.
The photographic section is where most will notice that this is a team entry. But also keep in mind that the use of cameras in tablets is far less important (in general) in the case of mobile phones, as in the case of wanting to take a photo is easier and comfortable dip smartphone.
The August 1401 HP incorporates a rear lens with a resolution of 2 megapixels and a front camera with a standard VGA resolution. We are in a fairly limited set that just serve to muddle through. In this case, you are missing that HP had chosen to sacrifice the rear camera and would have strengthened the front objective to improve the quality of self portraits and videoconferences in applications such as Skype.
One of the big news that leaves this tablet is that despite being a team headed to the input range will have a good internal memory of 16 GB. This is a space that should be enough to keep our apps, games and files media, even the most demanding users to increase the available space through a MicroSD card up to 32 GB. In addition, by purchasing this model we can also enjoy free 25GB cloud storage via Box platform. To run Android menus will have a quad core processor with a power of 1 GHz, which binds to a RAM of 1 GB. It is a medium set that should answer most of the time to the demands it, but that can be somewhat short when we run numerous applications at the same time.
The operating system chosen for the HP 1401 8 is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is not one of the latest versions of Google’s operating system, but it will allow us to access a very comprehensive set of apps on their official store.
In addition, this version includes the option to configure multiple different profiles so we can use the tablet between different family members. Within their own applications that HP has integrated into the device one of the most interesting is HP Connected Photo, a platform that allows us to synchronize our images between different teams of the mark. On the other hand, if we have an HP printer is very useful application HP ePrint to print directly through the tablet.
In the field of connections, the HP 8 1041 is a program designed mainly to consume content at home tablet. This tablet has WiFi but no 3G incorporates a module, so that browsing through the internet should be done connected to a local network or a public WiFi hotspot. It also features a USB port for charging and transferring files via computer, a slot for MicroSD cards up to 32 GB or a headphone output 3.5 mm.
