HP is filling out its tablet line. The PC giant announced two new business Windows tablets ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year – the ElitePad 1000 G2 and the ProPad 600.
The 600 is the latest in a series of fanless, Bay Trail powered tablets to hit the market over the past months, and looks to be a direct competitor for the likes of the Dell Venue 11 Pro. It features respectable specs including a 10.1-inch Full HD display, Windows 8.1, Microsoft Office Home and Student, 32 or 64 GB of expandable memory, and a large battery that promises to offer up to 8.5 hours of video playback, all in a device that weighs only 652 grams or 1.44 pounds (slightly lighter than an iPad 4).
HP is also launching a wide range of accessories for the tablet, starting with a docking station and even a point of sale dock (TX1).
The ProPad 600 is expected to launch in April of this year. Prices have not yet been announced.

• Windows Pro 8.1 (32-bit or 64-bit) or Windows 8.1 (32-bit or 64-bit)
