HP Omni10 appears at the FCC, probably a 10-inch Windows tablet

The HP Omni lineup consists of Windows-based all-in-one personal computers, but this newest member of the series appears to be a bit more compact. Okay, it is probably a lot more compact as it is a 10-inch tablet, as far as we can tell. It is known as the HP Omni10 and it has just been spotted over at the FCC. 

As is often the case with FCC filings, little about the tablet's specs is being mentioned. The HP Omni10 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a camera of some kind on its back, and that's pretty much all we have so far. We can't even tell if it is made to run Windows or not (although it most likely is). Who knows, the HP Omni10 might be one of those dual-booting hybrids, capable of running Android alongside a Windows installation. But the latter is just a guess.

With the launch of IFA 2013 just a couple of weeks away, chances are we might see the HP Omni10 during the expo. Stay tuned for updates if Windows-flavored slates are your cup of tea!

The part where they might add android means that microsoft is not doing enough to develop windows 8, they are totally dependent on the hardware manufacturers lyk HP etc. Like if you agree

That'll help android & Google alot if they plan to optimize android to run on pc like rumoured KLP, people will get use to it so it eventually force other OEM to make an android powered pc and encourage google to to enhance android may be they even unify android & chrome os which is almost dead.

I would also not like the Android PC version that's why Chrome OS is almost a fail. Chrome and Android are somewhat similar. I just like Chrome browser.

I am just curious what google can do. Android may be popular mobile OS but it's not yet shown much improvements on pc dep.

fishing for likes... none for you most oems are not innovators and only follow the trend pc sales are down and tablet sales are up... android is the most popular mobile os... MS has a bad reputation and win8 was bad mouthed with negative press... all these factors combined make the logical conclusion that an android tablet would be the best bet i dont have to explain how dumb of a decision that is and only a handful of companies are dominating the tablet sector they would be better off providing a more affordable pc experience with decent specs but they choose to release crap hardware with no justification for their high costs and then wonder why nobody buys their junk... tl.dr they all want high profit margins and offer no compelling reason to buy their products besides who prefers a gimped android over a full fledged windows os or even better linux....

Seriously, nobody cares about android alongside Windows; If anything, it would be a hindrance to the marketability of the tablet. Please keep android where it belongs, which is on crappy Taiwanese hardware that sells for $299

How have you not been suspended/banned yet?

Dude, seriously? If they were to suspend/ban all of the hateful little twerps that comment here and show their ignorance on a regular basis, there would be ten of us left. And before you call me a troll, I don't go around spewing hate and saying things I can't corroborate. I have my preferences, but I have tried a lot of phones and tablets to reach my conclusions, and there really are very few forum posters who are 100% objective.

I don't mind the Android bashing, "which is on crappy Taiwanese hardware that sells for $299" but that was uncalled for.

What's the point of dual booting android and windows, Windows can easily emulate an android machine if needed, just bundle BlueStacks with windows and that's all.

HP is throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks. Could have invested in webOS. Gave it a chance.
