HP, one of the top dogs when it comes to making PCs, has just unveiled a couple of new business-minded gadgets that lets you be productive as well as have fun. One's a tablet that's hell-bent on proving its kind is more than just for playing Temple Run 2 and Angry Birds, the other's a twistin' and turnin' notebook hybrid which reminds us of a scene from The Excorcist. Interested? Read on.
HP ElitePad 900
A Windows 8 tablet? Gimme!
This one's dubbed as a true business tablet, and it has the gooides to support this claim. Coming with beefed-up specs headlined by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom CPU that's paired with 2GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of eMMC SSD, the ElitePad 900 tells us it goes beyond apps, games, and mobile web browsing. In fact, you can get a lot of work done with this little tablet since it also boasts Windows 8 with Microsoft Office 2013 inside. It also has the durability to endure the rigors of on-the-go business users and can withstand 3-foot drops (really true; one of the HP officials showed us), though we still recommend not dropping it on purpose.
It has that sleek metallic charm going on
But, as they say in those dreary home TV shopping shows, that's not all! The ElitePad 900 also has a 10.1-inch, 1282 x 800 display with Gorilla Glass 2 protection to take on bumps and scratches. Going wireless? This tablet offers you Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and optional 3G and 4G connectivity. Want to take photos or do some video conferencing on the go? You've got a front-facing 1080p HD camera and an 8-megapixel rear shooter for those needs. All these nifties in a slim and sleek package measuring just 9.2mm thick and tipping the scales at only 1.5lbs.
HP also made available accessories that lets you maximize the ElitePad 900's potential. With the optional Productivity Jacket and Expansion Jacket, the device's battery life will be extended to up to 19 hours and will have more ports as well as a keyboard. There's also the Executive Tablet Pen for those who think our fingers just won't cut it when it comes to precision.
