Consumer electronics giant Hewlett-Packard is more than enthusiastic about their new computer tablet that has been integrated with Microsoft’s latest OS – Windows 8. HP designers unveiled fresh from their R&D labs the HP 900 ElitePad, which is slated to be released on January next year. The video showcases the design process that brought about this amazing product created from the genius of HP’s design team.
In the videos 14-minute run we are able to explore what goes on inside the HP Developer’s mind as well as how the Americans were able to integrate the beta OS Windows 8 into the tablet so seamlessly so that it’s ready for business use.
Stacy Wolff the vice president of HP’s design team introduces the ElitePad 900 prototype in the video. Wolff also noted that there were other tablet prototypes before they decided to put the ElitePad 900 as their primary gadget for 2013, although regrettably he admits that because of the far too complex systems that the other prototypes were built on they felt that it was impractical to sell them on the market as the consumer prices alone will not be ideal for the average everyday customer.
The HP 900 ElitePad comes with a 10.1-inch “Gorilla Glass”-coated display with max resolution of 1,200 x 800 pixels, which will give an excellent viewing pleasure and unadulterated image and video quality for a computer tablet. With all these advancements set in place for the ElitePad the overall weight of it has also been reduced to a meager 1.5 lbs and at only 9.2 millimeters thick – it may as well be the best HP tablet yet.
The full specs of the ElitePad hasn’t been disclosed at this time like for instance HP only said that it’s using the latest Intel Atom processors. I’ll throw in a long shot guess that they’ll use the dual core Atom processor from Intel since Samsung and Apple have already begun using it in their latest products also, but I guess we’ll never know until January of 2013. Other obvious specs of the ElitePad 900 includes the 2GB expandable micro SD memory, a solid-state HDD as well as the integrated graphics from Intel.
