Beware the bezel, but otherwise minimalist design pleases

Back in March 2014, Hewlett-Packard Comp. (HPQ) carried out a stealthy launch of a tablet packing Google Inc.'s (GOOG) Android OS.  Very much a budget offering, the $170 USD tablet featured a bare bones spec, but some nice features like microSD expandable storage.

HP remains a low volume seller in the tablet market, but the veteran firm -- a top seller in the traditional PC market -- is looking to gain ground.  Probably the best thing about the tablet was its attractive, minimalist looks.

Twitter leaker @evleaks has posted some new press shots from HP.  It appears HP is finally stepping up marketing of the new design. What do you think?

If the CPU isn't a slug and it has a nice display.. wouldn't be as much of a flop.. and has a current version of android..

So far HP tablets aren't known for any of those 3 things. But... Lets wait and see.

The least they could do to make it attractive is skin Android with WebOS (and maybe a Synergy clone) that is, if they're able to license it back from LG.

God HP, I love you but you been a God Damn mess lately.
