HP launches the ElitePad 900 tablet for business

Anticipating the increasing adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy in local companies, HP recently unveiled an array of products in their Channel Odyssey roadshow which includes their first enterprise-grade Windows 8-powered tablet, the ElitePad 900.

The HP ElitePad 900 is a 10-inch tablet running on Windows 8 Pro, an enterprise version of Windows 8 which has additional security and data management features. The screen has a 1280 x 800 resolution and doubles as a digitizer if you will also be getting the HP Executive Pen.

Being a tablet, HP equipped the ElitePad 900 with a dual-core Intel Atom processor for long-lasting battery on a single charge. Makes sense because target audience for the ElitePad 900 are the sales people or executives who only needs the basic productivity tools. It does however packs 2GB RAM and up to 64GB SSD.

Ports are pretty bare and expandable storage is only via microSD. However, there’s an accessory called Expansion Jacket that you attach to its docking port to give it more ports. This accessory will give you additional two USB ports, and HDMI port and an SD card slot. You can also add the Jacket Battery slice here if you will be working on the road for the whole day with nary a power outlet in sight.

  1. 1.5kg seems heavy for me.

      1.5KG is really heavy for a tablet considering that the trend is towards to the lighter one.

    hassle. importante USB sa office pero kelangan pang bumili ng additional accessory para lang magamit ang thumb drives.

  3. I do agree with you guys cause men are okay but what women? They surely can’t carry it and particularly the old ladies.
