HP details the Pro Tablet 608 G1 and the Windows 10 transition
The major manufacturers are all jumping in on the launch of Windows 10. Now, HP has announced that its portfolio of products are ready for the upgrade. The manufacturer had already planned an upgrade path to Windows 10 for its 2015 notebooks, so users who bought an HP product this year should expect a smooth transition. Meanwhile, new products will ship with Windows 10 for the rest of the year and beyond.
To make the transition as consumer-friendly as possible, HP is working closely with both hardware suppliers and Microsoft for faster and smoother driver updates. Additional details are provided below via briefing slides from Mike Nash, VP of Portfolio Strategy and Customer Experience.
