Plenary Session: The Enterprise Tablet Revolution

(This article was posted by Kim McKay, HP Discover Employee Ambassador)


Enterprise Tablets that end users and IT decision makers both love. How cool is that?


Yesterday, Carol Hess, Vice President of Commercial Managed IT Product Management for HP, explained the differences in HP’s three Enterprise Tablet offerings during her speech at today’s Plenary Session.


While there were different features among the three, the tablets shared a commonality: all are easy to use and friendly to the IT environments of many businesses and organizations. 


Here’s an overview of the three she spoke about:


The HP EliteBook Revolve tablet is a full performance ultrathin notebook that converts to a tablet, with Gorilla Glass and a tough all magnesium body.  It has enterprise docking, Windows 7 or Windows 8 and is of course, touch enabled.


Similarly, the HP ENVY x2 is two devices in one. A fully functional notebook with a bright, vivid HD Touch display, combined with a tablet that slides off for those times when you want to carry even less.


Last but note least, the HP ElitePad is a true business tablet, with world class design and an enormous range of accessories. That tablet includes HP’s expansion jacket, which adds functionality, extra ports and optimized battery life. There is also a new product called Multi-tablet Charging Module that allows you to charge up to ten ElitePads at once. This will be invaluable in environments such as hospitals or schools. 


Carol also screened a video demonstrating how easily the ElitePad can be opened up to be serviced or have the battery replaced.  She then followed with a fantastic comparison of the ElitePad and iPad. It was very clear that the ElitePad has been designed for the Enterprise! Here’s a few more useful features:

  • HP ElitePad is Microsoft Office compatible.
  • It is dockable.
  • It is easily serviceable.
  • It has a range of business accessories.
  • It can easily be integrated into your existing secure network.
