Just as it promised, HP finally launched its Android based PC. We saw so many rumors circling the web and we are ready for it to be made available on the market. According to initial information, this device will be ready to compete on the market with the best Windows based PCs which are available on the market. It’s called SlateBook X2 and it will try to do a makeover on the market and bring different PC experience.
It was announced that this tablet-laptop will be available sometime in August but we could see it made available on the company’s sales site. The SlateBook was launched in Japan few days ago, Monday to be specific. It’s listed as HP SlateBook 10×2 and it goes under the PC brand name. Surprisingly, it will run on Android Jelly Bean OS instead on Windows 8.
It packs really impressive specs and features. It has a 10.1-inch screen with 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution. It has an impressive pixel density with 224 ppi. The HP SlateBook will be powered by quad-core Tegra 4 processor coming from Nvidia and solid-state drive of 16GB SATA version. It also includes 2GB of RAM. The other specs that are featured into this tablet/laptop are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support with magnetic dock that enables you to switch from tablet to laptop mode. The thing that excited me the most is its great full-size keyboard that fits perfectly.
It will be available for $480 and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. In the meantime, HP confirmed that this SlateBook 10 is available for shipping. This isn’t the first tablet/laptop released by the company, as they were selling similar and more expensive hybrid device. The Envy X2 went on the market with a $649 price tag and it was an 11.6-inch model running on Windows 8 with Intel Atom processor.
In this device, you will find everything you are looking from a tablet device. Plus, it can quickly transform into a tablet that will enable you easier experience if you are changing the position of it couple a times into a day. Like we said, it’s packed with great specs and features and its performance is about to be seen when we have our hands on it. Until then, go to HP’s selling site and place your order.
What are your own expectations from this device? It looks nice and promising, but we’ll see what it has to offer when it becomes available.
