HP offers new 12-inch and 8-inch Android powered tablets for business use

The pen will allow you to draw on the tablet screen and on paper. With the HP Folio case, you can write on paper and have that information transferred to the tablet. This technology uses four microphones on the slate that can hear ultra-high sounds emitted from the pen. HP is the first company to employ this technology which was devised by Qualcomm.
HP also has a 7.9-inch Android powered tablet called the HP Pro Slate 8. The 2048x1536 resolution matches the Apple iPad mini's 7.9-inch screen, and Gorilla Glass 4 helps protect the display. The pixel density on the Pro Slate 8 is 326ppi.
Neither device has hit HP's online store yet, but we do know that the HP Pro Slate 12 is priced at $569 while the HP Pro Slate 8 will cost you $449. Both tablets are indeed available now from HP.

Right... I don't see how iOS/Android can do any real business yet. But they both are very good for email client.

Please stop that crap. Android and iOS both have Microsoft's suite of business apps including Microsoft office, one drive, and more from Microsoft running on both iOS and Android. It doesn't stop there because both platforms even offer free office and other business applications. Not to mention both Android and iOS have a much larger array of applications for the touch screen. Windows has far less applications developed for the touch screen. This is not fiction. This is 100% a fact. But clearly your Windows love has blinded you from the actual facts.

Go ahead and setup an 10 people office with tablet(either iOS or Android) only. I was in Time Warner customer service center few weeks ago, they are just using the iPad to sign in only. This year is the 6th generation of iPad, and it still can't replace my laptop. Deconclgi also point out good one.

There are some custom application develop for AMD64/x86. However, most general business user can get away with iPad and Android tablets. Name one use that you need to use Windows tablet exclusively, for me i use Android tablet to get the ETA from public transport app. Google MAP, GPS and its compress when i am moving around in new places. Surface Pro 3 cost more than 3 times my Galaxy tab S 8.4 LTE but still lack a GPS and a electronic compress.

Alan, why no mention of the Windows tablets that were announced today? You could have grabbed info from Android Central's sister site, Windows Central. Hmmmmm.....makes me wonder. Hidden motives or honest to goodness did not know about them. PhoneArena still covers all OSes right? One Stop Shop? No?

Hugh tablets with windows, considering windows is a complete OS, controls how much of the PC market? In reality this isn't even a tablet discussion, its a PC. Tablets are for my 3yr old...oh wait...no even he had a full blown pc. 12in Lenovo, running windows 10.
