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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
