HP Slate 21, all-in-one PC is powered by Android

Hewlett-Packard has announced a number of its new technologies during its HP World Tour in Beijing, China. Among a broad portfolio of PCs unveiled, HP is doing things differently with the forthcoming Slate 21.

The Slate 21 is an all-in-one desktop installed with Google’s operating system. It will run the latest Android 4.2.2 and is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 4 ARM processor. The 21.5-inch display is touchscreen-enabled and features full 1080p resolution.

To optimize the Slate 21 for “desktop productivity,” HP is also including KingSoft’s office software on to the all-in-one. The desktop has 8GB of storage, but also comes with an SD card slot, and has three USB 2.0 ports.

In addition, it’s not designed to lay completely flat — its kickstand lets it sit at a 30-degree angle for tablet usage or upright to be used in the more traditional desktop mode. According to HP, the hinge lets you adjust the angle of the display from between 15 to 75 degrees.

The $399 price point makes the Slate 21 the lowest-priced HP all-in-one, according to the company’s online store for the U.S. market.
