With their bread-and-butter PC market being ripped apart by rising tablet sales, HP’s new Slate21 looks to bridge the gap between both product areas. A 21-inch touchscreen computer that can be set up to act like an all-in-one PC, it’s running the Android 4.2.2 operating system rather than Windows 8.
Powered by a Nvidia Tegra 4 mobile processor, its got full Google certification, bringing the search giant’s raft of top-notch Android apps to the tablet, as well as complete access to the Google Play app store in full 1080p glory.
A simple kickstand on the rear of the machine lets you adjust it to your workspace, while a digitiser pen is also included, giving you an extra input option over a mouse and keyboard combo or your trusty old fingertips.
Initially revealed by HP’s Chinese arm, we’ll have more on the Slate21 once localised specs, pricing and release date is confirmed.
