HP, the giant of the PC industry that recently made its first forays into the world of Android, has unveiled today a new device that is sure to turn some heads – the HP Slate 21, an Android-powered all-in-one computer. As its name suggests, the device features an expansive 21.5-inch display of HD (720p) Full HD (1080p) resolution, IPS LCD with wide viewing angles.
So far, details on the specs are skimpy, but we do know that a beefy Tegra 4 processor from Nvidia is humming inside the Slate 21. HP is apparently planning to sell the device as a home entertainment device, with a heavy focus on gaming, and the Tegra 4 processor should provide plenty of power for such applicati
The Slate 21 was conceived for desktop use, though we’re sure that more than a few users will be hauling it around as a mobile device. Update: the device does not contain a battery. The tablet features a kickstand on the back that allows it to recline for comfortable use.
While we’ve seen large devices such as the Slate 21 before, HP’s product may be the first AiO powered exclusively by Android. Other products, such as those from Asus or Toshiba, run Windows and Android simultaneously, and switch between the two operating systems depending on the fly.
It’s not the first time we hear of the Slate 21. The first clue about it was a benchmark result that surfaced in April. Back then, the 1.8 GHz processor managed a good, though not impressive AnTuTu score of 23584. We’ll see if the commercial version of the device is faring better.
HP hasn’t released any details on the price and availability of the Slate 21 AiO, advising Chinese media that details will be shared on a per country basis.

I hope they partnered with Wacom on this slate. Seems like a perfect match.
You should keep your hope low, Wacom not gonna let anything eating the Cintiq sky-high profit.
If partnered, it wouldn’t necessarily eat profits away from Wacom but still profit from something else. Cintiqs and this slate are 2 different monsters. I was thinking more like the Samsung Notes and Wacom-made sPens.
You can hope, but keep it low :)
I only hope for someone make device can comparable with them so they don’t monopolize the digitizer market anymore.
Now that I could agree on. Here’s to hoping. :D
Well, I see there’s a Wacom logo in the event image from from CNet, though I couldn’t spot a official reference to it so far.
Oh crap, there it is. Missed that.
does it also have a hdmi/dvi port?
so it can be used as a monitor as well?
in that case it could replace my Acer DA220hql, which Acer kindly equiped with android 4.0.4, so i can hardly run apps on it (they’re either incompatible or simply crash almost instantly)
The official specs sheet hasn’t been released yet…
21 inch device running on a Tegra?
Why would anyone get that when they can get much better performing 13 inch ultrabooks with pen digitizers and a touch screen?
Am I missing something?
The all-in-pc has an expansive touch screen plus all those things like the pen digitizers and many more screen resolution..It is too far on thye move..
