HP's mystery device
HP has made no secret of its plans to launch a Windows 8 tablet but is yet to officially unveil one. A mysterious device did appear in both a promotional photo and video on HP’s website in recent weeks, however.
HP announced early last month its first Windows 8 tablet will be an x86 model aimed at businesses, and said it is looking at making ARM tablets running Windows RT.
Earlier this year, rumours emerged HP was working on its Slate 8, an x86-powered tablet with a 10.1-inch screen.
The tablet shown in the video and photo aligns with reports of the Slate 8’s design, boasting a metallic body with black antenna section for 3G/4G capability. The tablet has been reported to be 9.2mm thick with up to 10 hours battery life.
