Big display, high-resolution touchscreen mobiles flooded the market in 2012, and now touch-computing seems an upcoming subject of 2013.
HP is most probably the first company to introduce touch computers/tablets. But those windows tablets got less attention. World’s no.1 computer maker recently announced its Windows 8 Pro tablet “ElitePad 900” targeting enterprise market and public services. It works on Windows 8 Pro 32Bit Pro operating system. HP has offered tablets running windows from years. Right from Slate to Slate 2 which had upgraded windows 7 operating system, HP’s tablets were much appreciated in the business industry. These business grade computer/tablets were worth their cost for users across the globe.
Super light and thin ElitePad 900 is fully integrated windows 8 based tablet with 1.8GHz Atom Processor with 2GB RAM, It is available in 32GB and 64GB eMMC SSD storage. It has 10.1” IPS screen with 1280x800 resolution and active digitizer. ElitePad is just 1.5lbs with 9.2mm thick enclosed in an aluminum casing. The display has Gorilla Glass 2 cover and overall tablet look is highly durable. Stylus is an optional accessory and there is no slot for fitting it on a tablet. It has power adaptor port which can be used as USB port adaptor as well. It has an 8Mp rear facing camera.
The range of expansion jackets is available as an additional accessory for keyboard, USB ports, extra battery, and other things. ElitePad 900 has great promising 10hrs of battery life.
ElitePad 900 will surely compete with Acer W510, Lenovo Tablet 2, Dell latitude 10 and Microsoft’s Surface Pro, Samsung’s ATIV Smart PC Pro. ElitePad 900 also comes with value added service such as LANDesk Management Suite. Emirates Airline has opted for ElitePad 900 to be the first global customer.
Approximate pricing: 43,500 INR, 484 Euros, 649 USD
True Tablet for Business Purpose with great configuration and price.
ElitePad 900 display cannot be compared with that HD display of Google’s, Samsung’s or Apple’s non-windows based tablets.
Touch response is not very fast as the display has 5 point touch capabilities instead 10 compared to those others.
ElitePad 900 stays some behind on bench-marking rankings.
Overall ElitePad 900 is fully integrated windows based computer-tablet and not just iOS/Android-based touchscreen tablet. So we have a full rating on this product.
