Last weekend, HP debuted a new television commercial that showed, among other things, the back of a mysterious tablet. HP has still not talked about what this product is, but an image of the same tablet has popped up again, this time on an HP.com marketing website.
The Make it Matter page contains the picture which shows the back of the tablet being used by a doctor. This would lend to speculation that this product is being marketed for business and enterprise users, rather than consumers.
As we first reported earlier this year, HP has been working on what it calls the Slate 8, an upcoming Windows 8-based tablet. We posted up a slide from an internal HP presentation that shows a render of the Slate 8. It's currently unknown if that slide is showing the same tablet that HP is currently promoting in its new ad and website campaign.
While HP has already admitted that it is working on Windows 8-based tablets, the company has yet to give any concrete information on their plans for any of their Windows 8-based products. With Windows 8 now at its RTM stage, we will likely see more and more information leaked about a large number of Windows 8 desktops, notebooks and tablets in the next three months.
Thanks to Peter for the tip!
