Technology company Hewlett Packard (HP) Thursday entered the tablet market in India, launching HP ElitePad, designed for businesses and governments.
"The tablet replaces primary computing devices and provides an eco-system which addresses the requirements of the enterprise," Sunish Raghavan, head, commercial PC category, printing and personal systems group, HP India, told reporters here.
The ultra thin, lightweight tablet with Windows 8 also comes with the optional smart jackets, which add connectivity options and an additional battery for longer runtime.
The price of the tablet starts at Rs. 43,500.
Raghavan said the tablet with enterprise-grade features fulfilled the needs of mobility and productivity while ensuring security. It offered a solution to the problems faced by enterprises with their employees carrying multiple devices, compromising data security. It encompassed all features of a notebook and if the device is lost, one can remotely trace it and erase the data.
The battery supports the tablet for eight hours but with expanded battery it can be used for 19 hours. The other features of the 0.63 kg and 9.2 mm thin tablet include 10.1 inch diagonal display and e-printing.
