HP revealed the ElitePad 900 tablet at the start of this month (October 2012), but that did not mean that shipments could start.
Indeed, the tablet wasn't even approved by the Federal Communications Commission yet.
The approval has finally been passed though, for the 3G model at least. The 850MHz, 1,700MHz and 1,900MHz bands are supported.
Dual-band 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless support is confirmed by the filing
as well, as is the existence of NFC (near field communications).
for the other specifications known so far, but don't expect a price. Since sales won't start until January 2013, the cost was kept under wraps.
If the other Windows 8 devices on the market are anything to go by, the tag of the HP ElitePad 900 probably won't be very appealing
. We can still hope though.
