Mysterious HP tablet spotted in ad, could run on Windows 8
Hewlett-Packard is one of the companies working on Windows 8/RT tablets and its latest commercial might have just unveiled how HP’s newest tablet on the platform will look like. A mysterious gray tablet with a black strap on top (allegedly for 3G/4G connectivity) appears at the end of HP’s new “Make it matter” ad. Fast forward to 0:56 into the video to see it.

Judging from the fact that it’s a man wearing a suit that uses the HP tablet, we could assume the focus here is on business. Earlier, a leaked presentation slide showed a device called the HP Slate 8 running on the professional edition of Windows 8. That tablet was said to have a 10.1-inch display, be merely 9.2mm thick and have 8 to 10-hour battery life.

If that’s what we see in the commercial - and the size seems to be around the 10.1-inch mark - security should be paramount on the device. HP will pre-load tons of software including Computrace for tracking your device in case it’s stolen or lost.

We already know that Microsoft is releasing its Surface tablets on October 26th, and we guess it won’t be much longer until the HP tablet makes its entry, so stay tuned.
