Looks like HP is in no hurry to give up its tablet dreams. As per a new report, HP is in process of developing a high-end Android tablet.
As per the German website, SlateBook 10 X2 showed up in the AnTuTu benchmark results and it is expected to have a 10-inch display of unknown resolution. HP SlateBook 10 X2 will allegedly come with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor that clocks speed to the tunes of 1.8GHz. The tablet will run on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.
So far there is no word on when this tablet will start retailing and what it will cost. Another interesting thing to note will be if HP is able to market this product beyond US shores.
It is noteworthy, that HP had tried to get into the tablet market way back in 2011 with its HP TouchPad. HP TouchPad has a 9.7-inch display with 1024X768 pixel resolution and runs on HP’s own webOS. However, the tablet failed to take off and HP is now looking at making a mark in the Android tablet space.
The company is already offering HP Slate 7 tablet in the United States. It is affordable tablet, which is priced at $169, which translates to roughly Rs. 9,075. HP Slate 7 Tablet features a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. The tablet is packed with a dual-core ARM A9 processor that can clock speeds of 1.6GHz along with 1GB of RAM. It packs in 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a microSD slot. There is a 3-megapixel front camera and a VGA one on the back.
