The HP SlateBook x2, which was leaked before, is officially announced as the first NVIDIA Tegra 4-powered convertible tablet. Yup, it comes with a detachable keyboard a la ASUS’ Transformer series, doubling as a laptop when you need to type faster.
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is running the show on the 10.1-inch 1920×1200 IPS display, and there’s also 64GB of internal memory so you can store all of your photos, videos and other content and bring them with you whenever you fancy so.
Similarly to the ASUS Transformer devices, both the screen and keyboard have their own batteries making sure you get extra juice when using the SlateBook x2 in the “laptop mode.”
As for the pricing and availability, HP will start selling its powerful tablet in the U.S. in August, asking $479.99 for the unlocked, SIM-free device.
We’ll try to get a review unit to try out, and get back to you with additional information. In the meantime, you can check out SlateBook x2’s official page at HP’s website.
