HP SlateBook 14 Android Laptop Leaks

HP has teamed up with Google in the recent past to release a couple of Chromebooks, but it looks like the computer-maker may be preparing to launch a new laptop running Android OS. The upcoming SlateBook 14 appeared in a video on HP’s website earlier today, but was quickly pulled by the company, suggesting the new computer may not be ready for the limelight just yet.

Luckily, Android Police managed to jot down some specs and even grab a few screenshots before the video was pulled. The HP SlateBook 14 apparently comes equipped with a 14-inch Full HD touchscreen display, three USB ports, an HDMI port, an audio jack, a microSD slot, and a Tegra processor. The keyboard looks pretty familiar, though several keys have been given new Android-specific functions, and it looks like the new laptop will run Android Jelly Bean out of the box with Google’s full suite of apps and services pre-installed.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an Android-powered laptop, but this may be the only time we’ve come away impressed at what one has to offer. There’s still a lot we don’t know, including pricing and availability, but if all goes well HP may have a surprise hit on its hands.
