HP getting deeper into the Android business with two W.I.P devices- Browser 10 x2 and the Slate 6 Voice Tab
The multinational information technology corporation HP is apparently getting serious about Android. The leading PC maker company already has a brief history of releasing Android devices in the face of two powerful tablets that hit the stage this year.
Remember the HP SlateBok 10 x2? It has a 10-inch 1920×1200 full HD display, NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor backed up with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage and is one of the very first T4 CPU that launched. In addition to all this, the device has keyboard docks and an additional battery. HP SlateBook x2 put the Windows aside for the sake of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, perhaps because the latter uses Chrome and promises that the future HP devices will get into the Android business even deeper. The other one is their low-cost all-in-one device also known as the HP Slate 21 AIO with its stunning measurements of 53.09 x 6.7 x 35.38 cm featuring 15 forward to 70 degrees backward touchscreen display; a tablet device powered by NVIDIA Tegra 4 in order to run the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
GFXBench leaked that the HP Company is currently putting to brand new devices in test- the HP Browser 10 x2 and the HP Slate 6 Voice Tab. The first one is already rumoured to be the hybrid theory of tablet x notebook. The future Browser 10 x2 will follow the path of the familiar SlateBook x2 suggesting the usage of NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 4 CPU with a 1.8GHz cloak and full HD touchscreen and bragging with 1920×1080 pixels resolution as well as, you guessed it, Android 4.3 is stepping into the mini-laptop tablet device.
We’re not done yet; second to go is the Slate 6 Voice Tab that is suggested to be a voice-calling 6-incher with a MarvellPxa1088 processor quad-core Cortex A7 coated with 1 GHz instead of Tegra and Vivante GC1000 GPU. It will hold the resolution of 1212×720 , the older Jelly Bean version of Android 4.2 and it will probably be addressed to the low-range market.
Unfortunately, no KitKat for these ones, but there’s still hope for a very first HP smartphone device to become something more than a myth whatsoever.
