Priced at $268, HP’s Stream 8 tablet has debuted in India, where it proposes a Windows 8.1-based package with a pretty interesting specs list. This device was initially announced in September 2014, together with the HP Stream 7, so it took some time to get to the market.


HP Stream 8 is an 8 inch slate with an IPS anti glare display, with LED backlight and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. There’s an Intel Atom Z3735G processor inside, clocked at 1.8 GHz, together with Intel HD Graphics and 1 GB of RAM. We’ve also got 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and a 5 megapixel autofocus camera at the back, plus a 2 MP front shooter with fixed focus.

The slate also brings a micro SIM card slot and support for 3G connectivity, that for this price sounds very good. There’s also WiFi available, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and a 4000 mAh battery, that’s expected to deliver 8.2 hours of video playback, or up to 8.3 hours of web browsing on WiFi. HP also offers one year of subscription to Office 365 with the device and 60 minutes of free Skype calls a month and 1 TB of OneDrive storage.
