HP has announced a partnership with iPass to give customers buying new tablet and notebook customers a year of free access to the company’s network of Wi-Fi hotspots.

HP 10 Plus 10″ Tablet launches for under $300

HP has made a bit of a reputation for themselves here, and around the world for releasing products with little, to no fanfare.
