Gorgeous HP Envy x2 Windows 8 tablet hybrid outed
The HP Envy x2 could be counted for a tablet with a keyboard dock, but it’s close to a notebook as well - HP calls it a hybrid, but whatever you call it’s an exciting and great looking device. The Envy x2 features an 11.6-inch screen that detaches from the keyboard dock and functions as a standalone tablet. It runs on an Intel Atom Clover Trail chip and comes in a 32GB and 64GB variety.

But first - the display. At 11.6 inches the HP Envy x2 is bigger than most tablets out there. The resolution is 1366 x 768, the same as on an average Windows notebook. It’s an IPS LCD screen with reportedly a bright image.

The keyboard base of the hybrid device comes with a chiclet design for the keys and a relatively big touchpad. The tablet inserts with a latch mechanism.

With the combo of a tablet and keyboard, you get plenty of battery life. Just like we’ve seen on existing Asus Transformer tablets, the keyboard dock battery dries up first, leaving as much juice as possible for the tablet screen.

HP is planning to release the Envy x2 before the Holiday season, and just as everything at IFA so far, there is no exact price named.

This is a very good looking device by HP. There are so many Windows 8 devices coming out of the closet, I don’t know which one I should get. Microsoft is going all out with their partners. I'm just waiting to see what other companies will be coming out with Windows Phone 8 besides Nokia and Samsung!

This looks nice, but I'm getting my customized 15.6" ENVY. Nothing can compare to it.

I think someone is about to get sued. I love HP and their products but this keyboard closely resembles Mac Air and if it starts out selling apple they deff gonna through a tantrum .

i've always leaned more towards HP's PCs and Laptops. i personally use a dv7t quad-edition HP Laptop and i've maxed out the RAM to 16GB. it's a monster. i'd really like to have one of these though. o:

The only problem is the screen resolution. Come on HP we want Full HD.
