HP launched the EliteBook Revolve G1 hybrid PC last year and today, the company announced its successor, the HP EliteBook Revolve G2. The second generation features the exact same chassis and gets a hardware update with the 4th generation of Intel Core i3/i5/i7 ULT processors. The new features include an improved pen experience with an improved palm rejection technology. The hand writing solution is provided by Atmel.
Since it is the same chassis, according to HP, we assume that it will feature a 11.6” HD touch display, a 720p HD camera, dual-microphone array, DTS Studio Sound, durable, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 2 as well,and a 256 GB SSD (we did not get the specifications). The Revolve G2 comes with an optional 4G LTE connectivity features, the previous model was 3G enabled.
The HP EliteBook Revolve G2 will be available late in December for a starting price of $1,364.
With the trend of wearable gadgets catching on, we’re bound to see some great products come out next year. These products will obviously depend upon breakthroughs in technology, and today Vuzix announced a major optical breakthrough that will radically improve glasses-based wearable devices. With the announcement of Vuzix M2000AR HMD, the company is showing off its new Waveguide optics engine developed in collaboration of Nokia. Waveguide enables smart eyewear technology to be fitted into standard glasses frames.
