HP intros SlateBook 10 x2 with Android Jelly Bean, Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU
The HP SlateBook 10 x2 that we told you about last month is now official, as HP has announced it alongside the HP Split x2 – a 13.3 inch Windows 8 notebook.
As its name suggests, the SlateBook 10 x2 has a 10 inch display (1920 x 1080 pixels). It’s powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, being “the first Android hybrid” to use this new chipset.
Like Asus’ Transformer tablets, the SlateBook x2 comes with a detachable keyboard dock, which includes a second battery. Other features: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, stereo speakers, DTS sound enhancements, Kingsoft Office, USB, HDMI, and MicroSD card support. There are two cameras (on the front and back), but HP didn’t provide details on those. The company also doesn’t mention if the SlateBook x2 has 3G (or LTE) connectivity – it probably doesn’t, which means you’ll rely only on Wi-Fi for accessing the Internet.
The SlateBook x2 will be available starting August, in two color versions: “smoke silver”, and white. Prices will being at $479.99 – which isn’t bat at all, especially since this includes the keyboard dock. You can see the tablet in action in the video presentation embedded below:
The SlateBook x2 is HP’s second Android tablet. The first one is the affordable 7 inch Slate, which can be bought for $169.99.
