HP is launching its HP Slate21 All-in-One PC built with the Android 4.2 operating system in the UK this year.
The computer arrives on October 1st, priced at £369. It will allow families to enjoy cloud-based entertainment features such as TV streaming and Android apps. It will be sold on the HP Store and via retailers.
Through Google Services, customers can reach shared content such as calendars, email, notes and documents, which can be created with the built-in productivity apps; users can also print wirelessly from anywhere in the house, organise content and connect to other devices.
The Slate21 All-in-One has a 54.6cm (21.5-inch) Full HD diagonal reclining IPS touchscreen, with wide-viewing angles. With dual-band technology, users can stream music or movies and browse the web at the same time, and built-in DTS Sound technology offers a "rich concert-like experience".
It comes pre-installed with an HP TrueVision HD Webcam and Wireless Direct, which enables users to share videos, photos and data between devices without the need for a network connection. It also has multi-user support with the latest Android OS Jelly Bean 4.2, and features a Tegra 4 quad-core NVIDIA processor.
“Customers are looking for technology that simplifies their lives while keeping them connected to the entertainment they enjoy and the content they need,” said Louis Perrin, director of consumer products, Printing and Personal Systems Group at HP.
“The HP Slate21 allows families to easily access content through the cloud and enjoy it together on a large, interactive screen.”
