HP tablet for the enterprise market coming soon

HP tablet for the enterprise market coming soon
Just hours ago, HP posted a press release on its web site announcing a new lineup of consumer and business PC products, including desktop and notebook computers. However, right down at the bottom of the post, the company also gave us a clue regarding a product, which a recent advertisement might have already outed. "An enterprise-ready tablet will be announced soon," HP stated, without revealing any further details whatsoever.

Now, we might not know what the hardware specs of this upcoming device will be, yet we can safely assume that HP is not planning to ship the said device with Android. Instead, it seems likely that the tablet will run a flavor of Windows 8 – either Pro or RT, depending on what kind of processor it is powered by. Or at least that is how we interpret the slate's enterprise readiness. We are also expecting to see an Intel processor humming inside the tablet, given HP's statement that it isn't planning any ARM-based hardware for now.

That is pretty much all we know so far, and we hope to have more details on this HP tablet sooner than later. Is anyone excited to see what kind of slate HP has in stock for us?

That's interesting. So they are going to compete against the Microsoft Surface tablet?

I guess they're going to reveal the specs and features on Sept. 26th at the Intel event.

Dual-boot OS (Microsoft Windows 8/RT + WebOS) would be awesome

folks I generally an an intel CPU fan but since intel CPU chips are more expensive to use in Windows Desktops and laptops then I predict that the cheaper AMD CPU's will make Full Windows 8 Tablets cheap enough for large amounts of people to afford to buy them Intel may boast that they are the CPU of choice for windows 8 tablets but Microsoft had better know AMD make good working and cheaper Desktop and laptop Computers than those Intel CPU tablet and Desktops. since Microsoft is now in the Tablet wars whether it wants to be or not they have to realize cheaper good working Tablets rule in the Tablet world and AMD may help them and it's OEM's to sell more windows 8 Pro tablets than Intel because that are cheaper to make and sell
