HP Slatebook 10X2 tablet emerges as a potent Google Nexus 10 rival

HP could launch a new tablet called the Slatebook 10 X2, that’s what a German website, Tabtech, discovered while trawling through the popular Antutu Benchmark database.

HP already has a Slate 7 Android tablet currently selling for £129. The latter is a standard model which resembles many other white labelled models on the market. It is a dual-core model with 1GB of RAM, a 1,024 x 600 pixel 7in display and a couple of HP applications. You can read more about the HP Slate 7 here.

The SlateBook 10X2 however appears to be an altogether different beast. It is clocked at 1.8GHz and will apparently be powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4, a beast that comes with four Cortex-A15 cores.

Other features include a 10.1in display (possibly a 1,280 x 1,920 pixel model or maybe 2,560 x 1,600 to match that of the Google Nexus 10). Its Antutu score, 27259, indicate that it should be as powerful as the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa.

HP already has a convertible hybrid, based on Windows 8 called the HP Envy X2 and it can only be guessed ta the 10 X2 will be an Android-based hybrid with some cracking capabilities, one that could rival the Asus Transformer Infinity.
