So far the tech world has only seen quite a few all-in-one devices with Android platform layered in it. But when it comes to 21.5 inch, the result is, What??!!!! Ya sure it is. HP, one of the masters in PC making business, has recently announced their first All-in-one device called HP Slate 21 in Beijing that sports a massive touchscreen display measuring 21.5 inch. HP had been quite silent so far while Asus, Acer and others were making their announcements one after another but now it's surely got the undivided attention of the "hybrid device" makers.
The desktop and tablet combo runs on a fast NVIDIA's Tegra 4 chipset, and sports Android 4.2 out of the box, with a kickstand on the back for the ones who want to use it as a desktop. The 21.5 inch is likely to be used more as a desktop rather than a tablet. To further enhance productivity and entertainment, the Slate 21 All-in-One offers a diagonal reclining IPS touchscreen with wide-viewing angles for vivid graphics and better shared viewing. With dual-band technology, users can stream music or movies and browse the web.
The latest HP Slate 21 AIO comes pre-installed with an HP TrueVision HD Webcam and Wireless Direct. It offers speed and better performance with a powerful Tegra 4 quad-core NVIDIA processor, as well as an intuitive optical touchscreen with true pinch and zoom functionality. HP Slate 21 AIO sports a IPS display that offers a resolution of 1920x1080 Full HD resolution, and DTS surround sound speakers are also present.
The press release didn't contain most of the specs of the device, however HP said that there will be more details on the exact specs and pricing when the Slate 21 hybrid would get introduced at each country. Also the price of the HP Slate 21 remains unsaid but it is said that the device will be available in U.S. in September 2013 with price starting from $400 (approx. Rs. 23,888).
