HP Slatebook 14: Android in a Curious Form Factor, a Laptop?

HP Slatebook 14: Android in a Curious Form Factor, a Laptop?

Apr 29, 2014

HP has a curious new Android device, the Slatebook 14, on the horizon. This is an Android-powered laptop — and not one convertible to a tablet — featuring a 14″ 1080p touchscreen, 2 GB of RAM, HDMI output, three USB ports, and possibly a SIM card slot. In a world where Windows devices are becoming more tablet-esque, this is an interesting move for HP, but it could be one that fills a particular niche. As well, ZDNet says “There has been talk of some Chrome OS/Android integration and I imagine we will see more about this possibility at Google I/O in June.” We’ll keep an eye on this curious device. Until then, you can watch video of it here.
