Along with Dell and Lenovo, HP provides some of the most popular business notebooks with its well-regarded EliteBook series. Today, the manufacturer is announcing its first generation of the Pro Tablet series called the Pro Tablet 608 G1.

The 8-inch metal tablet is targeted towards executive professionals and focuses on mobility and connectivity. Thus, instead of the typical 16:9 display ratio, HP has opted for a more natural 4:3 aspect ratio to better fit presentation slides and 8 x 11 paperwork.

Accessories include a dedicated portable docking station with HDMI, USB 3.0, RJ-45, and 3.5 mm audio. An optional keyboard attachment is also available that utilizes the tablet's POGO pins for direct connectivity.

The Pro Tablet 608 G1 will be available starting next month for $479 with Windows 8.1. Users will need to wait until late August for the Windows 10 model, which will reportedly retail for a higher price due additional features. Expect our usual full review on the device in the coming weeks.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
