HP Stream 8 is one of few Windows 8 tablet options in India, priced at Rs 16990

The HP Stream 8 has landed in India for a price of Rs 16990 without making a big fuss about its debut. This is the same tablet that was launched along with its 7-inch namesake as well as the Stream 11 and 13 notebooks only in September.

Allowing for 3G connectivity via the micro-SIM card slot it hides under the hood, the HP Stream 8 stays true to its name and sticks to an 8-inch display with IPS technology for decent viewing angles. It runs on the Microsoft Windows 8.1 OS and gets its steam from a quad core Intel Atom processor clocked at a rate of 1.8GHz.

It features a 2MP camera above its touchscreen and a 5MP one without flash, on the back panel. The tablet works on a 4000mAh battery and measures 124 x 209 x 8.9 millimeters.
