The HP Pavilion 10 X2 tablet / keyboard case hasn’t been out for long but it has been a popular device in the UMPCPortal database. Maybe it was because of the very light total weight and good price. The updated HP Pavilion 10 X2 has a new hard-docking keyboard and has been updated with an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processing platform and USB-C. Like all the new tablets we’re seeing at Computex this is running Windows 10. It’s looking like a great ultra-mobile PC solution.
HP Pavilion 10 X2 2015 specifications:
- Windows 10 OS
- Detachable keyboard design.
- CPU: Intel Cherry Trail. (details not confirmed but we suspect Atom X5 only.)
- RAM: 2GB
- Storage: 32Gb eMMC
- Screen: 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 (resolution not confirmed)
- Ports: Full size USB connector and USB type-C, micro HDMI and micro SD card slot. Charging is through the USB-C port.
- Battery life: 12 hours (manufacturers claim)
- Weight: 1.76 pounds (800 grams)
If HP have managed to keep the total weight down to 800 grams, with a laptop-design detachable keyboard then this is a unique device because every other 10-inch solution with a detachable keyboard (for example the ASUS T100HA) is coming in at over 1000 grams. The 2014 version had a good 35 Wh battery inside so if HP have managed to keep this – and the tablet design doesn’t look like it’s changed – then we could be looking at a very interesting device. 64-bit support should mean better Linux-boot compatibility, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.
There’s no word on whether a 64 GB / 4GB version will be available. If it is, we’re very interested indeed. As for the screen resolution…hmmm.
