HP SlateBook 14 leaks out: the first Android-based notebook


The first Android laptop is likely to become a reality very soon. Leaked images have just revealed the HP SlateBook 14, the first notebook that has surfaced so far running on Android only. It features a 14-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, it runs on an unspecified Nvidia Tegra chip, and is expected to feature a modern version of Android.

Interestingly, so far, Android has never been used as the main platform on a notebook - we’ve seen it on convertibles along with other operating systems, it’s also appeared on 2-in-1 tablets with a keyboard, but never as the only OS on a full-on notebook.

What we can say from the leaked images is that the HP SlateBook 14 definitely looks modern, with a stylish color-accented design (we’re seeing only a black and yellow version at the moment), with a large Beats Audio speaker area above the chiclet keyboard, and with a front-facing camera, of course.

You can even spot all the ports and slots: there is a separate power jack, 3 USB ports, a full-on HDMI connector, a headphone jack, and a MicroSD card slot. Probably best of all, though, it’s got a SIM card slot, obviously for mobile data on the go. This certainly sounds like a winner to us, what do you think?
