Hp Slate 7 Front - with screen

HP has released an affordable, entry-level Android tablet, the HP Slate 7, which looks set to challenge Google’s Nexus 7 in the 7-inch tablet arena.

The most attractive thing about the HP Slate 7 might just be its price – at a mere S$249, the Slate 7 is S$100 cheaper than the Nexus 7 in Singapore. Pre-order it online at the HP online store and the HP Slate 7 costs only S$199 – that’s substantially cheaper than the Nexus 7, which is priced from S$349.

HP Moonshot

Warning of a “breaking point” in today’s data centers, HP on Tuesday showed off in Singapore its new generation of Moonshot “microservers” that promise to address the data challenges created by social, cloud, mobile, and big data.

These Moonshot servers are built from chips more commonly found in smartphones and tablets – such as Intel’s Atom processors – so that they generate less heat and consume less power.

As a result, each complete server can be packed onto one high-density cartridge, 45 of which can then be slotted into a chassis with integrated cooling, power supply, and management software.

Does sharpest fall in PC shipments signal the start of the end?

HP ElitePad 900

The arrival of touch-screen tablets and other designs with screens that flip, turn or rotate has not revived the fortunes of the ailing PC market.

Instead of providing a much-needed reboot, these Windows 8 machines may actually have made things worse by plunging the market into its steepest ever decline, according to research firm IDC.

Setting up a printer these days should be a walk in the park. After all, these things have been around for nearly as long as PCs have been in homes.

Yet, my latest adventure with HP’s Officejet 6700 Premium, an all-in-one inkjet printer, should give that thought some pause. I only just got it to work properly, several hours after I took it out of the box.

With the launch of Windows 8 just round the corner, we managed to get our hands on a couple of HP hybrid tablet devices – the Envy x2 and ElitePad 900 – earlier this week.

Though prices were still closely guarded at the Singapore launch on Thursday, we expect the hardware to compete well when the expected mass of similar devices go on sale from later this month.
