  • HP eating chromebook crow?
  • Does HP offer any 'Elite'Pads that have Intel Core processors?
  • finally something I'll buy :D
  • Too pricey man...surface pro is better option
  • Surface isn't available in India, HP, Dell, Acer, Asus, Toshiba, every OEM here
  • Then get the Venue Pro or something. At that price, I'd rather get a smaller tablet at 300 then spend the 700 for something else. I have an HP (Compaq) laptop right now but seriously, that price is totally not worth it.
  • KM2612 ;I totally agree with you. Why do I want to pay $1000 for 1.5 pounds intel ATOM 64bit OS, 64GB drive in 10.1: size, 1920 x 1200 resolution when I can get: core i5 SP3 12" of sexy awesomeness. 128GB drive, 64bit OS, 9.1mm thin, 1.67 pounds, Kick stand, 3:2 A/R, Ridiculous ultra retina like resolution at 2500+ x 1440,  Awesome PEN incuded that equally plugs in to corporate IT security for exactly same price ($1000). What is HP smoking? This is one of the very important reasons why Microsft needed to develop hardware because of these type of nonsence from these OEMs that gives Windows devices the bad rap. They design ugliness, questionable specs and price them horribly, then turn around to point at microsoft that its windows fault. An ATOM device for $1000? aghhhh
  • Well said. HP is bonkers
  • Like previously stated by the OP on this thread, and countless others, Microsoft's Surface isn't avaiable in India, which sucks. So yeah, not everyone, like you and me, are lucky enough to have a Surface. :\
  • I love my ElitePad 900. It is a very well made device which runs Windows 8.1 beautifully. Seems that 900/1000 series of HP tablets is somewhat overlooked. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • 1000 dollars for this? The Lenovo Thinkpad 2 is a better option at more than half the price. These specs are at Lenovo Miix 2 and Dell Venue Pro level that should be price 800 bucks less. You get a better deal with a Surface Pro 3. Even the first Surface Pro's a bettter deal than this and it's at 650 right now with 128GB of Storage and an i5 processor!
  • Expensive
  • 60k for the ElitePad? Too costly.. Should have been 50k max.. Might as well get a Surface Pro 2. The Omni 10 is reasonably priced.
  • Should launch some cheap tablets in India to gain market share. $100 tablet launched by Chinese manufacturer at Computex is great for markets like India. Personally, I would love to see and buy a sub ₹10k tablet running Windows 8.1
  • Bah 60 k for this i would buy a gaming pc or a gaming laptop instead of this.Tablets are useless in India.Just look at the price difference in US and India.When this price range closes up then these will grow in the indian market.
  • My question though slightly is not entirely out of place... Announcements are fine but things are sort of not ending up in the market.... Could anybody tell me when can i expect the Dell Venue 11 Pro in India. Announced long time ago and now no sign of it.
  • Want the 100 dollar tabs here in india
  • Don't get too hung up on the price. Its an enterprise device, where MSRP is far what what you'll have to pay retail. Keep your eyes open and you'll see very affordable smart buys available. It really is nice hardware. Will get better battery life, but I agree needs to be less expensive than SP3.
