Although HP's attempt at competing in the consumer tablet market with the HP TouchPad may have been short-lived, the company has continued to compete in the business segment of the market with products such as the ElitePad. In yet another effort to attract the business crowd, HP recently announced the new HP EliteBook Revolve.

The EliteBook Revolve is part of the company's ninth generation line of convertible tablets. What sets this convertible apart from previous generation models is the fact that it's running the touch-friendly Windows 8 OS. The EliteBook Revolve comes with third-generation Intel Core processor options, an 11.6-inch HD display, 720p video camera, USB 3.0 connectivity, and up to a 256GB solid-state drive. All of this comes in a portable, 3.04 pound design. An optional pen accessory for the EliteBook Revolve is available.

For businesses who are interested in deploying lots of tablets, HP also introduced the HP Multi-Tablet Charging Module which is capable of charging and storing up to 10 tablet PCs using a single power outlet.

HP plans to ship the EliteBook Revolve in March. Pricing has not been announced. The Multi-Tablet Charging Module will be available in January for $499.

The price is appealing, and at 3.04 pounds this sucker is scary light. The more I reread this article, the more i start to like the idea of this. Cheap, light, and able to charge 10 devices at once. Sounds like a viable option for the guys out in the field, or moving around the warehouse.

How can the price be appealing if: "Pricing has not been announced" ?

Ahh, I misread that last sentence.  I thought it was saying the tablet with the charger would be $499.  Good catch there, lol.
