Word’s out that HP is preparing two new tablets, one with Windows and one with Android. The new models are HP Slate Pro 10 and HP Pro Tablet 10, that are most likely to be showcased at MWC 2015.


These are 10 inch models, that rely on quad core Bay Trail processors (Intel Atom Z3735F), 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. They also come with NFC, WiFi and Bluetooth and they’ll get separate 3G versions. The “Pro” part of the name comes from the fact that these slates both come with a stylus, the passive kind that interacts with the screen like a normal fingertip.

This means you won’t get an active digitizer or pressure sensitive input for brush strokes. HP Slate Pro 10 EE G1 will be an Android model, while the HP Pro Tablet 10 EE G1 runs Windows 8.1. The cheapest variation of the products will run Windows 8.1 with Bing and come without a pen and we are also promised a release in Europe.

    The most unfortunately, the 10″ tablets appear to be 16:10. Given that Android and Windows versions are planned and in view of the new 4:3 tablets Slate 8 Pro and Slate 12 Pro, hope remains that those might come also in Windows versions. However, probably HP misses yet more chances to create the world’s first non-ruggedised, reliable 4:3 Windows tablet.

    Chinaware a la Onda or Teclast is not reliable. The Lenovo Miix 3 is not reliable and has a too small resolution. Ruggedised Panasonics are by far too expensive. Thus there still is no Windows-iPad.
