HP announces Envy 8 Note tablet along with an optional 10-inch keyboard dock

HP has officially unveiled the Envy 8 Note, an 8-inch tablet running the Windows 10 operating system. The specifications of the "mini-tablet" are more or less the same as previously leaked.

The known specs of this device are as follows:

  • Display: 8-inch Full HD display, with Corning Gorilla Glass screen.
  • Thickness: 7.7mm thick.
  • Accessories: Full-sized Aluminum keyboard (optional), with a built-in tablet holder, stylus.
  • Camera: 5MP rear camera with auto-focus, Full HD video at 30fps. 2MP front-shooter, 720 HD video at 30fps.
  • Processor: Intel Atom x5 processor.
  • Battery: 6 hours battery life.
  • Storage capacity: 32GB of internal storage, with microSD support.
  • Audio: Audio by B&O Play.
  • Sensors: Dual-mic, built-in sensors (possibly Accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, proximity sensor).
  • Connectivity: microSD card reader, micro-USB port, Verizon LTE/4G.
  • OS: Windows 10

The 10-inch keyboard is pretty interesting since it's larger that the tablet itself and actually dwarfs it, but it will certainly make doing work easier for people on-the-go. It also includes a track-pad to further enhance its functionality.

Touting the ability to easily make notes and embed them, the company has also bundled a HP Active Pen, which is a stylus that according to the company "mimics the weight and balance of a real pen, and gives you amazing precision with real-time responsiveness."

The HP Envy 8 Note's basic model (with stylus) will sell for $329, while the version with the keyboard dock will cost $429. The tablet will be available for purchase starting November 8 in the U.S.;worldwide availability is not yet known but is listed as "coming soon".
