HP Elitepad Smart Jackets Demo

Posted on 25 February 2013 by



I’ve had a chance to look at the HP Elitepad Smart Jackets and they’re not bad. They’re rugged, provide some good features and help to set the Elitepad apart from the rest of the Clovertrail Tablets.

First of all we’ve got the expansion jacket which offers 2x USB, HDMI and an SD card slot. You can also add an additional battery in the jacket.

There’s the productivity jacket which includes the keyboard, stand with adjustable angle, 2XUSB and full SD card slot. It makes a nice case for the Elitepad too.

Finally there’s the desk dock with power, Ethernet, VGA and HDMI out, 4XUSB, Kensington lock and line-out.

    Have you found I-Mate’s booth? All the info I can find on their 4.7″ UMPC seems to have been copied and pasted from a single source. I don’t plan on buying it since I have a Latitude 10 as my current large “UMPC” but I’d still like to read up on it. Like if there’s a stylus silo, battery life as a UMPC and if the phone software can be disabled or uninstalled.
