The “enterprise grade” device is powered by a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom Processor Z2760.

The 10.1-inch WXGA multi-touch display is built from Corning Gorilla Glass 2, with a 1280x800 resolution that promises wide-viewing angles.

The ElitePad 900 is built with a 64GB eMMC SSD, although storage can be expanded with a micro SD card. An optional HP External Optical Drive will also be available.

Additionally, it features an 8MP rear-facing camera, and front-facing camera capable of 1080p HD video. Audio is SRS, and the tablet also has inbuilt digital dual-array microphones.

As a business tablet, it will ship with HP Client Security, which includes: security manager, credential manager, password manager, device access manager with Just in Time authentication, Computrace, Sparekey, drive encryption, and HP BIOS settings.

Software and capabilities include: HP Wireless Hotspot, HP ePrint, Cyberlink YouCam Windows Apps, Cyberlink MediaSuite Windows Apps, LANDisk Management Suite, HP PageLift, Evernote, and Skitch.

Connectivity features include: 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC with Secure Element,

HP’s global PPS executive vice-president, Todd Bradley, said the ElitePad 900 will allow business users to be more product while ensuring security and management.

HP FLOP

too expensive and wouldnt consider it our large enterprise, early 2013??? WTF. HP always is slow to react to the market and late in bringing out new product, more than likely this will be a flop just like its touchpad.

This is the sort of device mid-large range enterprise can invest into. Security is alway's the first thing that comes into play - no CIO wants 100+ iPad's floating around that have little to know security or integration into the windows platform.

This is the direction HP should have gone with in the tablet space from the get go.
