HP Builds on Leading Business Tablet Portfolio

BARCELONA, Spain — HP today announced two additions to its leading business tablet lineup, both of which are available with a broad set of accessories to help transform tablets into total business solutions that increase mobility and security.

The HP ElitePad 1000 has been upgraded with a brighter and more durable touch screen with a 16:10 screen-aspect ratio, 4G connectivity and 64-bit capabilities to go along with its world-class design and HP Smart Jacket accessory ecosystem.

 

The new HP ProPad 600 offers essential productivity with on-the-go, long battery life, and versatile Windows 8.1 and x86 compatibility for legacy applications.

 

HP also launched the HP TX1 POS Solution, a sleek yet durable HP ProPad based point-of-sale (POS) solution that bolsters HP’s world-class portfolio of retail solutions for tablets that help businesses deliver a secure and simple retail experience to their customers.

 

Tablets have taken a central role in business with 21 percent of employees requesting a tablet from their IT managers. The changing nature of work—including an increasingly diverse, tech-savvy workforce and the evolution of the traditional workplace—has led to growing demand for light, flexible, powerful mobile devices such as HP tablets that both support a work/life blend and lock in to an organization’s IT infrastructure for manageability and increased security.

 

“Our tablets and mobile ecosystem continue to evolve to meet the growing transformation of the workplace,” said Enrique Lores, senior vice president and general manager, Commercial PCs, HP. “The line between work and life has blurred to the point that it’s now a true blend, where employees increasingly require stylish, business-ready mobile devices that don’t make any sacrifices to productivity, reliability or security.”
