After digging through HP’s site, the folks at Notebook Italia have managed to uncover a video for what appears to be an upcoming notebook. That usually wouldn’t interest many, as notebooks are quite commonplace, but this one is particularly interesting as it seems to be running Android instead of Windows, Linux or Chrome OS.
The Slatebook 14 as it is known, comes with a 14 inch 1080p display accompanied by a quad core NVIDIA Tegra SoC and all the features we come to expect from a standard Android device, including the suite of Google services such as the Play Store and a lot more.
Looking at the promo video, it seems like the notebook has been approved by Google which means that users will be able to work on it like a regular Android device. The Slatebook 14 is also revealed to come with Beats Audio speakers for exceptional audio performance.
There have been devices from ASUS in the past which have worked similarly, but this is a whole different take on the Android based computer. Naturally, there’s no word on when this device might break cover, but since the product video is already up on the company website, we don’t think the launch is far away.
What’s your take on this computer? Sound off in the comments below.
