The HP Stream 8 is a Windows tablet with an 8 inch screen, an Intel Bay Trail processor, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. While the specs aren’t spectacular, the tablet is cheap: a WiFi-only model normally sells for $150, while a version with 4G LTE sells for $180.
But right now you can pick up the 4G model for the same price as the WiFi model. Not only can you use it to connect to GSM networks, but when you buy the tablet you’ll automatically get 200MB per month of free 4G data from T-Mobile.

The HP Stream 8 looks tempting for the 200mb lifetime data alone. Too bad it only has 1gb RAM.
I live in Canada near the US border, and I travel to the US often. I usually pay my carrier for data roaming. This is almost worth buying to use as a mobile-hotspot device.
Careful with the Acer DA220HQL, the Android part can become corrupted pretty easily and cannot be fixed by the user. Without Android, you cannot adjust any of the settings, including volume. There are also no physical keys to adjust volume.
I initially bought a display model. The store employee unplugged it before it completely shutdown, corrupting Android. I took it back to the store, after getting home and finding out it wouldn’t start up. I got a new one in exchange. I’ve had to send it to Acer, when Android corrupted itself on a power outage. I haven’t had any problems with it since, and it’s been through a couple of power outages.
With that said, the screen quality is really nice, and it can work as a Windows 7 or 8 touchscreen by connecting it to a computer with a micro USB cable. Outside of the Android issue my only complaint with it is that it has a micro-HDMI port and requires an HDMI switcher or female HDMI cable to use with Google Chrome or similar devices.
