    HP announces SlateBook x2 Android convertible


    HP have announced the SlateBook x2, an Android convertible device (think Asus Transformer), packing a Tegra 4 processor, 10.1" 1920x1080 screen, 64GB of onboard storage and Android 4.2.2.

    Like the Transformer, the x2 has a battery both in the main slate part of the device and the keyboard, which should lead to stellar battery life. 'Snow White' or 'Smoke Silver' colours are available. Can you guess which i'd go for? ;)

    The x2 will be available from August in the US priced at $479.99 (global pricing / availability TBC) - head on over to the HP site to learn more.

    I think it looks fantastic and the specs sound good. Part of me wishes the screen as a little bigger (12"?) so I could use it as a Chromebook replacement though. Thoughts?

    Reports i've read say availability 'August', which is disappointing.

    I like the look of it though, someone (not sure if its going to be HP with their track record) is going to nail a product like this and make it a must have.

    A Nexus 10 / Chromebook type combo.... yes please. :)

    I love my Transformer Prime - is what I think an ideal Netbook should have been years ago.

    Good combination of weight, battery life, functionality, and performance. Also using the same apps I use on the Nexus 7 and my phone. Nexus 7 goes in my bag almost every time I leave the house, Prime goes in if I know I'm going to want to type a reasonable amount. Phone acts as a tethering device via Bluetooth or WiFi.

    This HP looks like a competitor to the Transformer Infinity, and a fair bit cheaper (time will tell on the UK prices).

    • Been a lot of scary moments in this game, but prob none more frightening for Cleveland fans than this moment.Cavaliers 87, Celtics 80 (9:38 4Q)
      Both teams are starting to trade buckets as this one closes out. Terry Rozier is putting the Celtics on his back to try to tie this one up. He’s got 28.
      The Celtics are battling back as much as they can. If the Celtics want to close this one out, they’ll need a huge fourth quarter from Rozier, Brown, and Horford.
      Cavaliers 65, Celtics 52 (7:18, 3Q)Cavaliers 54, Celtics 43 (halftime)
      A stellar second quarter gave Cleveland a double-digit advantage, especially with the group of Jeff Green, Kyle Korver, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. teaming with LeBron James. It was James who led everyone with 25 points, but the Cavs bench chipped in with 20 points, too.In a series in which one of the storylines has been just how tired LeBron is, James played all 24 minutes in the first half and is averaging over 40 minutes a game during this post

      A stellar second quarter gave Cleveland a doutage, especially with the group of Jeff Green, Kyle Korver, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. teaming with LeBron James. It was James who led everyone with 25 points, but the Cavs bench chipped in with 20 points, too.In a series in which one of the storylines has been just how tired LeBron is, James played all 24 minutes in the first half and is averaging over 40 minutes a game during this postseason. He is quite good in elimination games, after all.

    • LineageOS/ex-CyanogenMod 11.0 for G330/G510/Y300 Introducion CyanogenMod 11.0 for our devices was built by Dazzozo. SlimKat and SlimKat CAF are built by chil360, using Dazzozo's device tree as base. Now LineageOS CAF is built, using chil360's CAF device tree as base. Features - Should be the same as for CyanogenMod 11.0 by Dazzozo. Screenshots also, until newer will be made. - FM Radio, FDroid, getChromium, K9Mail are added. - ROM has signature spoofing. Bugs - MAJOR bug, for now: apps using WebViewClassic are crashing (Browser, Opera mini, Via, etc...). Chromium and Dolphin browser are working. - MINOR bus, for now: Nanomod-microg 7.0 can not connect to Google Account, 7.1+ freezes "Sign in" and "Cancel" buttons. OpenGApps works fine. Downloads ROM: LineageOS 11 OpenGApps: Optimized GApps KK  
    • Thanks for review, Trapezio! Replace with newer PlayStore or adding FDroid could solve no.2 and no.4 even no.5 But no idea for WPS and QS Flashlight without using apktool, for now.
