HP has come to CES with an new all-in-one PC that runs Android. It’s called the HP Slate 21, a 21-inch 1080p IPS desktop device with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to start. It isn’t all that unlike the original Slate 21, but the “Pro” at the tail-end of this thing’s name means it’s aimed right at the business class. That means HP will be loading this thing up with software and services fit for anyone in the enterprise sector or in education.
Specifically, they’ll be preloading it with Kingsoft Office, Skype, Evernote, HP’s Classroom Manager, 50GB of storage from Box for life, and Citrix Receiver for remote controlling other Window PCs. Despite this being a “business” centric PC, HP says it could be used for a typical classroom setting, public kiosks (such as a business center inside a hotel) and other uses.
For specs, it’ll feature NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 4 processor, an HD webcam, WiFi N, Bluetooth 4.0 and more. All of that comes with a cool price tag of just $399, which doesn’t seem bad at all if you can make this thing work for you. It’s available right now, but if you were looking for some hands-on time with this thing before taking the plunge you’ll be able to find it sitting above.
