HP has just announced a slew of business tablets in both Android and Windows flavors. From the really big 12" HP Pro Slate 12 running Android to the rugged ElitePad 1000 G2 with a 2D barcode scanner running Windows on an Intel Atom CPU. Then there's the HP Elite x2 1101 G1 2-in-1 convertible with an 11.6" display and optional (yay!) Wacom pen. The Android tablets surprisingly run on the Snapdragon 800 rather than 801 or 805, but they do feature Gorilla Glass 4--the latest iteration of that super hard glass. And there's the Duet Pen for the Android Slate models, where you write on paper (ahem) and it appears on the tablet.
Here's the new goods for you business types:
HP Pro Slate 8 and HP Pro Slate 12 Android Tablets
Available in 8-inch or 12-inch diagonal displays respectively, the tablets are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor, and support a 4:3 aspect ratio to easily view business documents and access business applications. Less than 8 mm thin, these lightweight tablets offer powerful computing and business-day battery life with enterprise-grade security and manageability. Both devices are designed with business productivity in mind featuring a wide range of accessories enabled by HP's Zero Force connector. HP Pro Slate 8 is one of the first tablets to market using Corning Gorilla Glass 4, Corning's toughest cover glass to date.
HP Duet Pen is the first to use Qualcomm Snapdragon digital pen technology on both a tablet and regular paper, is included with the HP Pro Slate 8 and HP Pro Slate 12. The pen is part of the HP's Blended Reality Ecosystem, helping employees be more productive and create easily shareable content by writing and digitizing input from the device's screen or via a regular sheet of paper using the HP Paper Folio.
