HP unveils ElitePad 1000 tablet aimed at business users

HP's thinnest tablet sports 64-bit Windows 8.1, and an Intel Bay Trail processor.

HP has unveiled its new Windows tablet for business users, the ElitePad 1000 G2.

It runs a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 and features an Intel Bay Trail CPU. It replaces the ElitePad 900.

Making its debut at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the tablet is among the thinnest tablets the vendor has ever made, measuring in at 9.2mm and weighing 680g. The 10.1-inch touchscreen WUXGA display has a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels and a pixel density of 224ppi. The touchscreen is covered in Gorilla Glass 3.

It also comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage. It also boasts an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash, 2.1-megapixel front camera, and USB 3.0 and micro-SD slots. The processor is  an Intel Atom Bay Trail-T Z3795 quad-core CPU running at 1.6GHz.

There is optional LTE connectivity available on some models too. It also includes 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4 wireless connectivity as well as NFC.

For businesses there are also integration tools and "self-repair" features that allow users to remove the back of the tablet to access and replace the battery, display, webcam, system board and other components.

Like the ElitePad 900, the 1000 G2 comes with an array of covers that can add additional batteries and ports to the tablet.

The tablet is priced at $739 and will be available in March. There were no details about UK pricing at the time of publication.

HP also launched a cheaper tablet offering in the form of the ProPad 600 G1. This tablet sports 64GB of storage and weighs in at 652g but is thicker than the ElitePad 1000. It boasts an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera. It also has micro-USB 2.0, micro-HDMI and micro-SD ports.

Unlike its bigger sister, the ProPad doesn't sport the self-repair features and won't work with the firm's Smart Jacket covers.
