The new HP ElitePad 900 will hit stores in January

Hewlet Packard has officially launched a Windows 8 tablet dubbed ‘ElitePad 900’ which will arrive in the US market by January.

The 10-inch slate is a high-end much like the EliteBook laptop but this one has a premium look to it. Weighing around 1.5 pounds, it measures around 9.2 mm in thickness and meets the military’s MIL-spec 810G durability requirements; which means it can be dropped from three-foot distance and withstand the damage.

It is specifically designed for business users who will love the features like drive encryption, pen input and optional 3G/4G. The machine has an aluminum back cover and a 400-nit IPS display which is coated in Gorilla Glass.

Its spec sheet is quite decent; it runs 2GB RAM and is powered by Atom-based Intel Clover Trail processor. It packs a choice between a 32GB or a 64GB SSD and promises to give approx. 10 hours of battery backup.

The screen resolution is a disappointment; 1280 x 800 but the rear camera makes up for it, an 8MP rear lens and a1080p front camera for video chats.

The ElitePad is embedded with two USB ports, a full size memory card slot, HDMI output and room for an extra battery. Take a look at the first look video courtesy of
