HP ElitePad 900 announced
When it comes to the world of tablets, there aren’t too many choices if you were to take the operating system as the defining factor. After all, most folks would go for one of the two – Android or iOS, although it does seem as though iOS is going to remain top dog for some time to come. We might hear whispers of Microsoft’s Windows RT and Windows 8 operating systems making a splash later this year, but they are still an unproven equation, so the Android-iOS argument will just have to continue at this point in time. Well, here we are with yet another tablet device that has entered the market – the HP ElitePad 900, and no surprises here, it will run on the Windows 8 platform which might just be Microsoft’s next big hit in the mobile arena.
The HP ElitePad 900, at its core, is a tablet which balances a beautiful design with enterprise-grade features, functionality and support, all in a single device. Specially designed for the business and government, it will offer HP ElitePad Smart Jackets, which will add a new dimension of connectivity options alongside an additional ultra-slim battery for longer runtime, not to mention specific add-ons which allows one to customize the tablet for specialized uses.
Features on the HP ElitePad 900 is said to keep IT managers happy, not to mention carrying a design where employees will not be ashamed to pull it out of their jacket or bag to use. Offering full serviceability, enhanced security and manageability along with military-grade durability for drops, vibration, dust, temperature extremes and high altitude, the HP ElitePad 900 does seem to be the tablet to get when it finally arrives.
Todd Bradley, Executive Vice President of Printing and Personal Systems, HP, said, “Businesses used to face a tough purchase decision: How to find a product that will delight employees and help them be more productive, while also making sure IT can secure and manage it. The HP ElitePad meets all those tests. It combines the great style and user experience consumers demand with the features IT requires.”
It will also carry a 1080p front-facing video camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, now how about that? Would you get the HP ElitePad 900 when it finally hits the market before the year is over?
