When there are whispers and rumblings concerning the HP ENVY 8 Note even as late as last month, you can be sure that this particular model has gotten real, as in, in the flesh, this time around. The HP ENVY 8 Note happens to be a premium Windows 10 tablet that has been designed from scratch, in order to provide customers with something that is worth looking at, as well as invoking the green eyed monster in others that probably gives rise to the naming of the device in the first place. Taking on the market niche that sees a powerful tablet working alongside a keyboard accessory, the HP ENVY 8 Note will also boast of a full sized aluminum HP ENVY Note Keyboard Folio that is sturdy in nature and has a special slot which allows you to dock the tablet – horizontally or vertically, it does not matter.
The HP ENVY 8 Note will measure all of just 7.7mm thin, while weighing a mere 0.8 pounds which makes it more than suitable to tote around. It will feature an 8″ Full HD display with ultra-wide viewing angles, and for added durability, it has been layered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. LTE connectivity would ensure you enjoy blazing fast connections with the ENVY 8 Note, while an Intel Atom x5 processor runs proceedings from underneath the hood.
The use of the HP Active Pen will also help make you more productive, as it comes with a high accuracy, 2mm tip to complete this pressure sensitive active stylus. At the back lies a 5MP autofocus camera, while the front has a rather ordinary looking 2MP shooter. A microUSB 2.0 port is there on the keyboard for charging purposes, while a micro SIM slot, a microSD memory card reader and a headset jack rounds things off.
The HP ENVY 8 Note with stylus alone will cost $329 a pop, while the device with a stylus and keyboard folio is a Benjamin more expensive at $429.
