HP teases Spectre; full reveal at CES 2012?

HP had a bit of a rough year in 2011 but we are now just three days into 2012 and everything is looking more optimistic for the PC maker. Today the company sent out a mysterious video (via The Verge) that shows ... well ... something. There's a lot of flat rectangular things that are moving and rotating around in this video and at the end you get a logo with the word "Spectre" in it. That's basically it.

The teaser video is certainly eye catching but what exactly will the Spectre turn out to be? Well, as Engadget pointed out a few days ago, a laptop with the name HP Envy Spectre passed through the FCC approval process. So it's likely that this Spectre video is preparing us for the official reveal of this laptop.

There's no information in the FCC document about the hardware inside the Spectre, other than it will have a dual-band Wireless N connection. Still, the way that HP is promoting the Spectre makes it seem to be more than just a standard notebook. You can bet that HP will fully reveal the Spectre at CES 2012, which we will, of course, be attending.

The Logo transition reminds me of HEROS...

It would be interesting if it runs WebOS as an App, but I doubt WebOS will be anywhere to be seen at this time... but you were being sarcastic... weren't you =P

lol. ALL Ultrabooks are copies of Macbook Air. That was the point in Intel's reference architecture.

Maybe someone should have told Intel that there were ultra slim notebooks before the Macbook Air…

Ultrabook.

The Video @ 0:21 shows a very clean minimal looking laptop opening up, you can see ports and what looks like a screen catch or something.
