In addition to the ProPad 600, HP has rolled out the red carpet for its ‘total business solution’ slate, the HP ElitePad 1000 G2. With the ElitePad 1000 comes a svelte design at 9.2mm thin and 1.5lbs, as well as Windows 8.1 Pro and options for enterprise users. The HP ElitePad 1000 features a 10.1-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and resolution of 1920 x 1200. Under the hood lies an Intel Atom Bay Trail-T Z3795 quad-core 1.6GHz processor and integrated Intel HD Graphics, all of it accompanied by 4GB of memory and either 64GB or 128GB of storage.
Hewlett-Packard on Sunday launched a new ElitePad 1000, a Windows 8.1 tablet designed to bridge personal and professional use, and the ProPad 600, which has a lower price point. At Mobile World Congress, HP outlined the ElitePad 1000 G2, which is billed as a “total business solution.” The tablet launches in mid-March and starts at $739. HP’s Derek Everett, director of worldwide product management for commercial Windows tablets, said the ElitePad 1000 G2 is designed for flexibility with full-sized HDMI ports, a bevy of accessories and features that could make the device a laptop replacement. “No one size fits all with tablets,” said Everett. “Some need keyboards and see tablets as notebook replacements.”
