March 14, 2013

Designed with the business user in mind, the HP ElitePad 900 from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is a premium tablet that delivers a thin, lightweight experience to take productivity beyond the office with ease. An elegant design and an intuitive multi-touch interface bring Windows 8 to life, seamlessly integrating into the Windows environment and delivering an easy to deploy, easy to manage and simple to secure mobile world. A complete suite of accessories lets you customise your experience for maximum productivity, including a full keyboard and docking station as well as a smart jacket that not only protects the device, but extends battery life as well.

“The HP ElitePad is a no compromise business tablet, built exclusively for Windows 8. It is ergonomically shaped to fit your hand, and ultra-thin and ultra-light to suit the mobile environment. A long life battery and fast boot times ensure productivity no matter where you are, and a range of customisation options make this device perfect for many applications. Dock it at the office, and the ElitePad becomes a desktop PC. Add a full keyboard or an additional screen for multitasking. From business to sales, insurance to design, retail and real estate to education and healthcare, the HP ElitePad adapts to suit all environments,” says Francois van Wijk, HP PSG Business Unit Manager at DCC.

Measuring 9.2mm x 261mm x 178mm and weighing in at just 690g, the ElitePad is light and portable enough to go just about anywhere. A 10.1” super bright WXGA screen with 1280×800 resolution delivers a crystal clear viewing experience with ultra-wide viewing angles. Specifications include 2GB low power DDR2 (LPDDR2) memory, 32 or 64GB embedded Multimedia Card (eMMC) SSD memory, wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, WWAN via a MicroSIM slot, and a Micro SD slot for expanded storage.

To improve productivity, the ElitePad is based on Intel Atom processor technology, which supports Windows 8 while enabling compatibility for existing business apps, and provides a familiar user experience. A durable Computer Numerated Control (CNC) machined aluminium back case and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 provide rugged durability, designed to withstand MIL-STD spec 810G testing. The ElitePad has also been reliability tested to 115 000 hours with HP’s Total Test Process.

“With impressive specs along with contoured edges, an anti-smudge screen, aluminium buttons and a stylish ‘executive pen’ stylus, the ElitePad has the looks and functionality to suit any environment. It is built to last and designed to look great and work dependably anywhere from the boardroom to a laboratory, the library to a warehouse. Added features like a 1080p front camera for video calls and an 8MP rear camera with built in flash let you capture true-to-life photo and video for a full tablet experience,” van Wijk adds.

A familiar setup experience along with HP Custom Integration Services make the ElitePad easy to deploy in existing environments, while HP Global Series and Services ensure consistent support for business with international operations. HP Client Security, HP BIOS Protection and Microsoft Defender ensure defence against viruses and other threats, and optional do-it-yourself maintenance tools make updates easy. An optional three-year limited warranty helps to protect and extend the investment.

“The ElitePad enables you to work on your terms, with a tablet that fits your business, and a complete suite of accessories gives you freedom to customise the device to meet your needs. This sleek, elegant and thoughtfully designed tablet will transform your business for true mobile working,” Van Wijk concludes.
