In occasione del CES, HP ha svelato ufficialmente lo Slate 21 Pro, il “mega tablet” di cui avevamo già parlato nelle scorse settimane. Si tratta di un All-in-One con un display IPS che ha una diagonale di 21,5 pollici e una risoluzione di 1920 x 1080 pixel. E’ animato da un SoC NVIDIA Tegra 4 e da Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, il quale include il pieno accesso al Play Store.

Troviamo preinstallate, per esempio, applicazioni come Google Drive, Kingsoft Office e altre simili, il che significa che il tablet è destinato principalmente ad un uso professionale. Non manca ovviamente il supporto al WiFi, al Bluetooth e una fotocamera anteriore per le video-chiamate.

Lo Slate 21 Pro viene proposto al prezzo di 399 $ con mouse e tastiera inclusi nella confezione, ma per adesso è disponibile solamente negli USA. Per sapere se sarà commercializzato in Europa non ci resta che aspettare.
