Those devices are now on sale, slightly earlier than originally anticipated.
The Slate Book X2 and Split x2 are both convertibles with detachable tablet displays and a battery-boasting keyboard dock but that is mostly where the similarities stop.
The SlateBook x2 is a high-end 10.2-inch Android tablet that runs on Android 4.2.2, has a quad-core Tegra 4 processor (yes, the new Tegra 4), 1920 x 1200 resolution, 400 nits of brightness, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. The dock has two USB ports, an SD card slot, and HDMI port and a battery life of over 8 hours.
HP has priced the convertible competively, as well, at $479.99.
The Split x2 will run on Windows 8, a Core i3 processor, 4GB RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. The 13.3-inch screen has 1366 x 768 and battery life should be a bit over 5 hours. The Windows tablet will cost $799.
