Back in 2013, Lenovo announced its first ever Android-powered laptop, dubbed the A10. It was the first ever notebook to be powered by Google's Android mobile OS. After Lenovo, now it's HP's turn to bring an Android run notebook aimed at students.
The HP SlateBook isn't the first of the kind Android-based laptop we've ever seen, though it is far neat looking compared to Lenovo's A10 notebook. The 14-inch, NVIDIA Tegra 4-driven laptop, will go on sale on August 6 at a price point of $399 (about Rs. 23, 940 approximately). Yes, this is the same laptop that the company accidently leaked on its site in April.
Under the hood is an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 64GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and a decent battery for 9 hours of use. The notebook comes with a 14-inch Full HD touch screen display, making it one of the largest portable products running on Android mobile OS.
On the connectivity front, the laptop will feature two USB ports, alongside a single HDMI port.
New HP Chromebook 11 Goes Official
Besides launching the Android-based notebook, HP introduced the updated Chromebook 11, now in two more colors to choose. It has the same 11.6-inch display compared to the original model launched last year. The laptop is powered by Samsung's Exynos 5250 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Surprisingly, the new model weighs 2.69 pounds and 20.5 mm thick, against the original notebook's 2.3 pounds and 17.6mm. Now, there is a support for 3G SIM connectivity. The notebook is priced at $249 (about Rs. 14,950 approximately).
So far, both notebooks will be sold in the US market for the time being. HP hasn't confirmed when the company will bring the new products into Indian market. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
