HP knows Android

HP unveiled its first Android tablet this weekend. They’re not playing in the Polaroid or Archos space, but for $170–neatly between Amazon’s and Google’s prices–you get Android 4.1, a 1024×600 display, and a microSD slot.

To me, the microSD slot is key. HP is catering to those who don’t want to tie themselves to Google’s or Amazon’s services, which I think is a good idea. And they’re doing it at a better price than Samsung and Asus have been willing to do.

For those who prefer a high-tier brand, this looks like a good bet. It’s slated for an April release.
