HP announces Android and Windows transforming tablet/laptops

There were rumors a couple weeks ago that HP was working on a 10-inch Android tablet, but it looks like that wasn't quite right. In fact, HP was working on a transforming tablet/laptop hybrid; well, two hybrids, one that runs Android and one that runs Windows 8. HP has officially announced both devices, which are scheduled to hit the market in August...

Why no FullHD screen on splitbook X2.......??? When we will see FullHd screens on midrange windows Os based tablets or Ultrabooks........??? The development in laptop/ultrabooks, and tablets based on Windows based os is going at snail pace, since manh years we are struck on HD screens for midrange devices, wheras android has FullHd based tablets available at the lesser price than the midrange windows offerings..........

That was actually pretty funny.
I'm going to wait till they hire another horrible CEO and cut the price in half. I figure it'll be about a week of waiting.

the Android one is higher end in regards to it's standing among others running it's platform. an i3 powered Windows machine is low-end, a Tegra 4 powered Android machine is high end. get the picture?

For slatebook X2, why didn't HP went dual-boot way, by installing both Android and Windows RT.......... This way people who are reluctant to try Windows RT, could also get to try it, and they would already be having Android if they felt that there are lack of apps in Windows store........ I thnk some manufaturer should come up with more dual-booting Tablets......

I don't think Microsoft would ever allow this. The best we can hope for is Android/Ubuntu dual-boot which would make incredibly also.
