HP has launched the SlateBook PC, a unique 14-inch Android laptop that carries a fairly sleek design.
HP vice president Mike Nash says the SlateBook combines the familiar interface of Android on mobile devices “with the productivity of a notebook ... in a breakthrough design,”
The Slatebook PC is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor with 2GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage.
It has a 14-inch, 1080p touchscreen display and is fairly heavy at 3.71lbs and only available in black with bright yellow accents.
HP has added tools so Android apps will stretch out to the full 14-inch screen size.
The SlateBook also offers full access to the Google Play Store, with access to all your downloaded apps.
The laptop is expected to be shown at Computex trade show this week in Taipei, which kicks off June 3.
The Slatebook PC will be available starting August 6th for $399.
HP is also announcing the Chromebook PC, another 11.6-inch Chromebook powered by a Samsung processor.
The Chromebook PC will start at $249 for a Wi-Fi model and there’s a built-in 3G version in the works.
