While global PC shipments continue to decline, HP has found a new solution to remain relevant in changing times.
Hewlett Packard (HP), perhaps best known for its personal computers, has been preparing to launch a 14-inch notebook computer running Google's Android OS, dubbed the SlateBook PC.
The HP SlateBook PC does not run on traditional Windows OS; rather this device will support Google's Android OS, according to a report.
HP SlateBook 14 - What to expect?
HP will soon introduce a 14-inch FHD notebook computer powered by Android OS. The touch screen notebook is powered by a quad-core Nvidia chipset, although HP doesn't specify chip Nvidia Tegra chipset used under the hood.
The 14-inch touch screen display is Full HD, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. There are dedicated USB ports and an HDMI interface for viewing Full HD content. What's more, there is a special key to switch apps between Apps on the keyboard.
The SlateBook 14 will have access to the Google Play Store. That means you won't need to install third-party app stores to run your favorite apps. With a mere 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, the SlateBook 14 hardware isn't exciting enough.
It also features Beats Audio, a microSD card slot, HDMI port, 3 USB ports, audio jack, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth.
HP SlateBook 14 - Price and Release date
There's no update available as when HP will release the SlateBook 14 in the global markets. Talking about the retail price, the notebook could be made available under $350 (about Rs. 21,000). The HP SlateBook 14 is expected to give tough battle to the Samsung Chromebook 2, which is running Chrome OS out of the box.
