HP has just announced its first ever Android-powered notebook. While HP isn't new to Android, the company has yet to launch a 14-inch notebook running the mobile operating system.
Enter the HP SlateBook, the company's take on office/ school productivity.
While Chromebooks have the upperhand in terms of Google's productivity apps, running Android means that the notebook has access to over a million applications on Google Play. Plus, Android fans might want to use their favorite apps and games on a larger screen. This is where the SlateBook fits in.
Powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 4 quad-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, the HP SlateBook will hit the market on July 20 for $429.99.
Other features include a 2GB DDR3L SDRAM, up to 64GB of internal storage, a front-facing VGA camera, Beats Audio quad speakers, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. HP says that the SlateBook can last up to 9 hours.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
