Over the weekend, HP officially unveiled two notebook devices for fans of Google's software bundles. These include the Android-powered Slatebook leaked last month, as well as new variants of the company's existing Chromebook 11 series.
Trying to corner yet another segment of the growing mobile market, HP is reported to soon out a new Slatebook 14 Android device. But rather than sport the hybrid tablet/laptop form of the Slatebook x2, the Slatebook 14 is a full-fledged notebook sporting almost the same specs as the older model.
ASUS is really taking its Transformer tablet/laptop convertible form factor to heart and is squeezing out as much as it can from it. At CES 2014, the company has just unveiled the Transformer Book Duet TD300, yet another Android/Windows hybrid that feels like a one step back, two steps forward dance.
Intel has struggled with the mobile markets, but their new chip today aims to fix that. Earlier this year Intel released their new Haswell 4th gen processors which finally brought serious power and battery life to laptops and ultrabooks. Today they company announced their new hybrid chip for laptops and tablets both called Bay Trail, which they hope can deliver the same boost to mobile devices.
Hybrids are the new black and ASUS definitely wants to stay in fashion with the new Transformer Pad TF701T Android tablet/laptop hybrid. If the name and model number has got you confused with the new Transformer Pad Infinity unveiled at Computex last June, you're not alone. But fear not, as the two are practically the same.
Giving its own spin on the rising trend of tablet/laptop hybrids, ASUS has announced its Transformer Book Trio at IFA 2013. This, according to the company, is the world's first three-in-one ultraportable, providing not only a tablet and a laptop, but also a complete desktop PC.
There's some bad news for those eagerly waiting for Samsung's latest tablet/laptop hybrid to hit the market. It seems that the Samsung ATIV Q has hit a substantial snag in the form of a patent issue which has caused its delay, and might even cause its death.
We have a little bit of exciting news this evening from the folks at Google regarding their impressive Chromebook Pixel laptop. Back in March Google stated they'd start shipping around April 8th, but today they've confirmed devices will actually be hitting doorsteps tomorrow, April 12th. So get excited if you spent the cash to get one.
Is it still April Fools' Day? A new report today from the somewhat reliable DigiTimes is reporting that Google is looking to get deeper into the notebook and PC market. Only this won't be a Chromebook, instead it will be an Androidbook. First off that name is terrible. And second, if anything it would be a hybrid device like the ASUS Padfone or the Transformer tablet with a keyboard dock.
