HP continues its initiatives to the conclusion of the Android platform on the market for traditional PCs. The next step in this direction was the announcement of Slate 21, a huge Android-tablet, which can be installed in the position of a desktop computer. This device is a mobile operating system Google Android 4.2.2.
-One PC is based on a powerful 4-core ARM-based processor NVIDIA Tegra 4, which was presented earlier this year at the exhibition CES. The device has received full certification Android, so users will have access to the entire set of applications on a large 21.5-inch touchscreen IPS-screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. Store separately mentioned Tegra Zone c games optimized for SoC NVIDIA.
future owners can take advantage of the back of the device stand that allows you to adjust the display position from vertical to convenient for drawing digital pen inclined (30 degrees). Available as built-in speakers DTS Digital Theater Systems, Webcam HP TrueVision and support for the Wireless Direct.
Eric Wiggins (Eric Wiggins) of HP said: «Larger screen allows you to get a better joint environment. Such a product is able to replace one or two mobile devices in your house and used as a general device. Creating a product with a large touch screen, as we believe, will open up new options for using ».
While the company did not report the cost and time of the release of this unusual touch-One PC based on Android, but calls and some technical details (including the amount of RAM and a built-in storage, and the availability of the battery).
worth remembering that at this year’s MWC 2013 was presented the first HP tablet on Android – budget Slate 7, equipped with a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600, 2-core processor and operating system Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Then in May, the company introduced HP SlateBook x2 – a hybrid notebook based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and Tegra 4 with a detachable keyboard.
The new 21-inch device Slate 21 is something of a transitional device between traditional strengths of HP and the world of Android. The company is clearly trying to reduce dependency on the Microsoft Windows platform 8 by promoting Android in the market for traditional PCs. If such products are more or less favorably accepted by consumers, we can expect more and more Android-laptops and computers in the performance of HP and less cause for joy in the camp of Microsoft.
