  1. Hewlett Packard famously exited the smartphone and tablet industry back in 2011 when they made the business decision to retire webOS. After concentrating its collective efforts on a number of different industries, HP will today announce its plans to re-enter the mobile space by introducing two "phablets" that will initially be introduced into the Indian marketplace. The 6 and 7-inch VoiceTab devices are billed as tablets, but will come enabled with voice features that will bring calling capabilities to the hardware. HP may have found their popularity fading in a lot of the world’s major economies but its consumer facing products have remained strong in India, which could be the driving force behind the decision to release the two slates. The two VoiceTab devices will both ship running Android 4.2 and come with an internal storage capacity of 16GB with the ability to expand that storage through use of microSD cards. Both the 6-inch and 7-inch variants will feature dual HD camera modules, dual SIM-card slots and stereo speakers that should definitely appeal to the media conscious consumers in India. The 6-inch VoiceTab version will come equipped with a 720p display, whereas the 7-inch option will offer a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, both of which will be powered by a quad-core processor. HP has clearly paid a lot of attention to the aesthetics of the two tablets and have opted for a rear design with "a premium pixilated, scratch-resistant back cover". The decision to re-enter the smartphone market, albeit initially in India, shouldn’t really come as a great surprise. CEO Meg Whitman admitted in an interview last September that her company would "ultimately have to offer a smartphone". India’s consistent love of HP’s consumer technology doesn’t necessarily mean that the devices will be an immediate success when launched. The likes of Samsung and Nokia both have a relatively healthy share of the smartphone industry in the Indian marketplace, making things a little tougher for HP. Ron Coughlin, Vice President for HP’s consumer PC business, believes that there is a "need in India that we can meet" and that consumers are increasingly "looking for a way to consolidate devices". There’s currently no indication that the hardware will launch in any other markets or what the initial pricing point will be when launched. Source
  2. Last month we got the word that HP intends to release a 6" and 7" Android devices, priced less than $250 each. Naturally, at this price, they are intended more to secure some foothold for HP in markets like China and India. Dubbed HP Slate 6 Voice Tab, the 6-incher already appeared at the Bluetooth certification and graphics benchmark databases. Now we got sent a tiny, blurry picture, supposedly from a presentation at the HP Labs, which shows the back of a whitish device that has the HP logo on it. Our tipster claims that this is precisely what the HP Slate 6 will look like, and it will indeed sport a basic quad-core processor, 1280x720 pixels HD display, dual SIM network support, and have a price tag around the very affordable $200 mark without a contract.

  3. 9to5Google reported last week that an HP smartphone could be launching in a matter of days, targeting emerging markets with an affordable price point. Whether or not the release is legitimate this time, Digitimes has its doubts that HP will be able to make its mark in the saturated smartphone market. The first models are expected to feature displays between 5.5 and 7 inches, priced below $250. Although the prices should be competitive with other phones containing similar specifications, “HP’s new mobile devices may lack special features in terms of hardware specifications and could look like white-box models,” says Digitimes. HP will also likely not launch any flagship phones to balance out the entry-level devices, which Digitimes believes could result in a disinterested consumer base. Source
  4. A leaked video demo reveals the HP Slatebook 14 – an Android-powered laptop with a 14″ 1080p touchscreen. It’s not a hybrid (detachable tablet + keyboard dock) like the Slatebook X2, nor is it a dual-boot device, it’s pure Android. The specs are a bit unclear, but the video is promising a slim and lightweight design. Without the need for a second battery behind the screen like on the Slatebook X2, this new device should be thinner than 20mm. It’s positioned as an affordable device, though so we shouldn’t expect anything too cheap. The body seems to be made of polycarbonate and will likely be available in bright colors. The HP Slatebook 14 features a 1080p screen, but a cheaper version with a lower screen resolution might be available too. It will be powered by Tegra 4 with rumored 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, expandable via a microSD card slot. The Android version is unclear, but it’s rumored to be 4.2 Jelly Bean. There are also three full size USB 2.0 ports, a full-size HDMI port, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The connectivity features include a SIM card slot, presumably for HP DataPass. The Slatebook 14 also packs Beats audio speakers. Note that the HP Slatebook 14 isn’t official yet, but with Computex 2014 just around the corner (it starts June 3) it should be announced fairly soon. Until then, check out the video in question: http://<object id="flashObj" width="480" height="270" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,47,0"><param name="movie" value="http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1&isUI=1" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /><param name="flashVars" value="videoId=3507630053001&linkBaseURL=http%3A%2F%2Fh20621.www2.hp.com%2Fvideo-gallery%2Fus%2Fen%2Fproducts%2Flaptops-and-notebooks%2Flaptop%2F3507630053001%2Fhp-slatebook-14-video-demo%2Fvideo%2F&playerID=1111577658001&playerKey=AQ~~,AAABAeI3VIE~,N0OfmZCPaxgxui0PhG4ilXrKUlL_O1tR&domain=embed&dynamicStreaming=true" /><param name="base" value="http://admin.brightcove.com" /><param name="seamlesstabbing" value="false" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="swLiveConnect" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1&isUI=1" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" flashVars="videoId=3507630053001&linkBaseURL=http%3A%2F%2Fh20621.www2.hp.com%2Fvideo-gallery%2Fus%2Fen%2Fproducts%2Flaptops-and-notebooks%2Flaptop%2F3507630053001%2Fhp-slatebook-14-video-demo%2Fvideo%2F&playerID=1111577658001&playerKey=AQ~~,AAABAeI3VIE~,N0OfmZCPaxgxui0PhG4ilXrKUlL_O1tR&domain=embed&dynamicStreaming=true" base="http://admin.brightcove.com" name="flashObj" width="480" height="270" seamlesstabbing="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" swLiveConnect="true" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></object> Source
  5. HP today took the wraps off two new Windows 8.1 devices designed with business and enterprise users in mind. The EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 is 14-inch ultrabook that's just 15.9mm thick and weighs in at just 1.49kg (3.3lb). Prices start at $1299 and in the case you'll find a 256GB SSD, 8GB DDR3L RAM, but one of the more intriguing aspects is the ForcePad touchpad. This is a pressure-sensitive touchpad that allows for varying speeds of scrolling. Press firmly as you swipe down and scrolling will be fast, press gently and it will be slower. The display is available in 1600 by 900 pixels and 1920 by 1080 pixels varieties, and there is a choice of fourth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors. This is a device aimed at the business market, and the same is true of the EliteBook Resolve G2, a magnesium cased convertible notebook that can be transformed into a tablet. Prices started at $1364 and include a solid state drive and Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor. There is an optional docking station available for the 11.6 inch machine and while the 1366 x 768 is a little on the low side, the screen does feature Gorilla Glass and an anti-glare coating. At 1.4kg, this is slightly lighter than the Folio 1040 G1, but slightly thicker at 22.22mm. Source
  6. By John Callaham 2 hours ago Microsoft may be attempting to get people to buy PCs with Windows 8.1 installed, but it appears HP is trying to appeal to buyers who want to stick with the older Windows 7 operating system. HP's home page is currently spotlighting a sale of Windows 7 computers, and uses the term "back by popular demand" as part of its pitch. The fact that HP's website is now openly selling Windows 7 PCs to regular consumers, well over a year after the launch of Windows 8, may hint that the company thinks offering the older OS on some of its systems might be a better selection than Microsoft's newest software. So far, it appears that HP is the only OEM that is actively promoting the sale of new Windows 7 PCs. Other companies like Dell, Lenovo and Acer also have options to purchase PCs with Windows 7 pre-installed but they are well hidden on their sites and are usually targeting the business customer, while HP's promotion is for home and home office consumers. A few weeks ago, Microsoft confirmed that while new retail sales of Windows 7 as a separate software product ended on October 30th, 2013, sales of new PCs with the OS pre-installed still don't have a specific end date. Thanks to Neowin reader Frank B for the tip in our forums. http://www.neowin.net/news/hp-promotes-windows-7-pcs-sales-says-they-are-back-by-popular-demand
  7. I have HP Pavilion DV6-2174-TX Notebook PC which has no official support for Windows 8 from HP.But i downloaded drivers from here and it worked for Windows 8.After i clean installed Windows 8.1 Pro with WMC,i tried the driver for Nvidia GeForce 105M Graphics card from Windows update as well as from Nvidia website.I experience random BSODs Even if i don't install/update the driver i get BSOD?I tried Driver Magician but resulted in BSOD.BSOD is always related to Nvidia driver. Do you suggest any reliable software for updating my driver? Does anyone the way to install Win 8 driver on WIn 8.1?
