HP's thinnest tablet ever brings a plethora of updates
HP revealed a newly-redesigned model of its HP ElitePad 1000, sporting several upgrades and changes from the previous iteration. It's now rocking a brighter touch screen with augmented durability as well as support for 64-bit and 4G. It also happens to be the company's thinnest tablet so far, weighing 1.5 pounds and clocking in at 9.2 mm thick.
Following the unmitigated disaster that was the TouchPad, Hewlett-Packard has kept a low profile in the tablet market, with the Windows 7-powered Slate 2 tablet PC being the only HP-branded tablet device to have hit the market since then. In August, John Solomon, senior VP of HP's Americas printing and personal systems division, said that the company’s Windows 8 tablet would pack “some unique intellectual property.” We now know what Solomon was talking about back then.
