So you are in two minds on whether you would want to pick up a tablet or a notebook, since it is inconvenient to carry around two of such devices simultaneously, and yet you also want the flexibility of having both to use as and when required. We have seen some attempts in the past to address this particular issue, and even took out the likes of the Lenovo Yoga for a run, coming away rather impressed. HP’s take on the situation has resulted in the HP SlateBook x2, where you are able to make the jump from entertainment to work by merging tablet portability with notebook productivity within a sleek, lightweight device that runs on the Android operating system.
Sporting an advanced magnetic hinge design and dual battery system, one of the batteries reside in the base while the other is in the tablet, you can switch between tablet and notebook in a jiffy. With Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in tow, you will be able to enjoy Google services such as Google Now, Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive and Google+ Hangouts, while the NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor ensures your productivity is not hindered on the 10.1” HD touchscreen display which will be accompanied by internal memory and DTS Sound+ Solution. The HP SlateBook x2 is slated (pardon the pun) for an August release at $479.99 a pop.
