HP Slate 2 Tablet

HP putting an end to its TouchPad isn’t the newest headline, but the HP Slate 2 tablet PC running Windows 7 certainly is. The device is built for business-oriented purposes and holds enhanced multitasking performance, higher security as well as added flexibility for mobile users. Besides this, the company has also launched the HP 3115m notebook which is targeted towards professionals.

Providing battery life of up to 6 hours, the HP Slate 2 tablet PC is powered by the Intel Atom Z670 processor with mSATA SSM technology to deliver faster boot times and higher performance. The device weighs only 1.5 pounds which makes it highly mobile and convenient creating, editing and reviewing content whilst on the go. With the 8.9-inch capacitive multi-touch display, the lightweight HP Slate 2 comes bearing a new Swype keyboard which enables quick text input through a continuous motion across the screen.

“HP is dedicated to the tablet PC category and continues to listen to customers and improve the product in ways that best address their business needs. The HP Slate includes the right mix of rich features, support for custom-built applications, and the security and connectivity needed for today’s highly mobile and rigorous day-to-day professional environment,” expressed Dan Forlenza, vice president and general manager, Commercial Managed IT Segment, HP.

Additionally, the HP tablet PC wraps in features such as the HP Connection Manager for easy control over wireless connections, BIOS support for Computrace Pro for protection against data theft and the Embedded Security for HP ProtectTools. What’s more, the company has launched the HP 3115m notebook which comes bundled with a 11.6-inch LED-backlit HD display, Beats Audio and the AMD E450 dual core Fusion APU with AMD Radeon HD 6320 graphics.

The HP Slate 2 tablet PC price starts at $699 and it will be available sometime later this month worldwide. The HP 3115m notebook price tag initially reads at $429 and it can be purchased starting November 11.
