The folks from ASUS might have revolutionized the way we use and enjoy tablets, mainly Android tablets, but today HP is the first to offer it with NVIDIA‘s brand new and impressive quad-core Tegra 4 mobile processor. Just like the popular Transformer series, the HP Slatebook x2 will be an Android tablet that docks into a keyboard for that full laptop experience.
Not only does the Slatebook x2 offer that full laptop-like experience, but just like ASUS it doubles as additional battery for the slate. HP’s Slate 7 isn’t extremely popular, but this new Slatebook might better suite your tastes. Why, because it offers top-tier specs across the board all for a fairly decent price.
The HP Slatebook x2 comes with a 10.1-inch display and keyboard dock, but it’s what’s under the hood that matters. Being one of the first devices announced (and to market) with the NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. That isn’t all either. You’ll be enjoying Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as well. Well done HP! How much you ask? All of this will be just $479. So not as cheap as some recent Transformers, but then again we do get the Tegra 4.
That 10-inch screen rocks a 1920 x 1200 resolution IPS display, you’ll enjoy 16GB of internal storage and micro-SD to add as much as you need. Then being a laptop-like device that keyboard dock supports USB 2.0, full size SD card, HDMI-out, and more. We don’t have exact details on the additional battery inside the keyboard, or battery life estimates, but we’ll be finding out more details soon.
The HP Slatebook x2 will be the first detachable Android device to market with NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 4 mobile processor, and will support all those Tegra-optimized games. Again it will be priced around $479, and should hit the market around August. Sounds like a pretty quality Android “laptop”. What do you guys think?
