HP goes Android with x2 hybrid
Hewlett-Packard's new SlateBook x2 can double as an Android laptop, and that's a first for HP.
Hewlett-Packard has a newfound affinity for Android.
An Android laptop, mind you, not a Chromebook.
"With an advanced magnetic hinge design and dual battery system -- one battery in the base and one in the tablet -- users can easily switch from notebook to tablet and back," HP said in a statement.
The SlateBoook x2 "detachable" will come with 64GB of storage standard.
And about that Tegra 4. It's one of the first quad-core chips based on ARM's newest Cortex-A15 design and features 72 GPU (graphics processing unit) cores and supports up to 4GB of memory.
The SlateBook x2 is expected to be available in the U.S. in August with a starting price of $479.99.
