There is an announcement of an upcoming ElitePad 900 tablet PC by HP (Hewlett-Packard). Are you getting puzzled with the ElitePad 900? The HP ElitePad series seems to be snowed for different spectators. One thing is sure, it is a tablet PC running Microsoft Windows 8 operating system (OS). It’s a business-centric tablet, notably sidestepping comparisons with the consumer-friendly iPad, boasting a 10.1″ diagonal touch panel, a weight of 1.5 lbs., and a frame that’s 9.2mm thick.
While the original Windows-powered HP Slate feels like it was introduced (and soon left to be forgotten) ages ago, the new ElitePad 900 is hoping to dodge that same fate. It’s engineered for Windows 8, and will support a host of business-friendly accessories. Read it ahead for the later details.
Powered by next-generation Intel mobile processors, the HP ElitePad delivers PC productivity for those on the go and Intel x86 compatibility for existing business application support. It is designed for Windows 8 and supports touch-, pen- or voice-based input. Things like the Productivity Jacket, which includes an integrated keyboard, connectivity ports, SD card reader and adjustable viewing angle, as well as an Expansion Jack that adds USB, HDMI and other connectivity ports. The unique, productivity-enhancing ecosystem of HP Smart Jackets and additional accessories designed specifically for the HP ElitePad expand the tablet’s potential, turning it into a total enterprise solution.
The HP ElitePad offers a long life cycle, stable image and HP Global Series Support. It also features a one-year standard warranty, with the option for a three-year warranty via HP Care Pack Services. Other specs include a 1080p front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera, and support for pen input. Strangely, no pricing is being revealed, and you won’t be able to get one this year as it’s shipping in January of 2013.
