HP Launches Upgraded ElitePad 1000 Premium Tablet with Bay Trail for Business Users

HP refreshes the aging HP ElitePad 900 just in time for MWC

On top of launching the ProPad 800 enterprise tablet and copying Lenovo’s Yoga design with their new Pavilion x360 convertible, HP has also announced the next-generation ElitePad 1000 slate.

Like the ProPad 600, this is a tablet aimed at business professionals with a focus for mobility. Of the two slates, the ElitePad 1000 is the premium one, boasting an aluminum case and cellular network capabilities.

The new tablet has a 10-inch screen with full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and is powered by an 64-bit Intel Atom Bay Trail processor. Specifications include microSD card slots, micro HDMI out, dual cameras (8MP on the back and 2MP in front) and support for a pressure-sensitive digital pen-input.

The tablet brings support with HP’s own Smart Jackets which brings an important set of extra functions such as extra batteries, storage or ports.

For those of you who are interested, the HP ElitePad 100 should become available in March and will cost around $739 / €538.
