HP Omen X 2S gaming laptop adds a clever second display

HP TouchPad gets another lease on life with Android 9 Pie ROM

It isn't just wights that refuse to die (no GoT spoilers here, sorry). Even some devices do, too, if given enough attention, love, and a dose of Android. Nearing a decade since it launched, the HP TouchPad seems to refuse to bite the dust. Especially now that it has just gotten yet another chance with the latest version of Android that isn't even available yet on some of last year's smartphones.

HP Chromebook 15 2019: Finally, the age of couch apps is here

So you'd like to see another Chromebook, would you? Today HP's got a new Chromebook with a 15-inch display that FHD and works with touch.

This bit rolls with 8th gen Intel Core i processors, up to 128GB SSD, and dual speakers with B&O branding (tuning).

HP VR headset Copper aims for highest display excess

The HP Copper (code-name) VR headset was revealed in part this week as a topmost best-in-class device. Other companies either have their own ecosystem (Oculus or HTC Vive with Steam VR), or are part of Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality platform - and are relatively bland in industrial design. HP seems to want to break out of that mold, while continuing to utilized Microsoft's program in the process.

HP Chromebook 14 steals Acer’s AMD thunder, Chromebook x360 14 G1 coming

It seems that the age of AMD-powered Chromebooks is coming. Granted, two doesn’t really make for a new trend but that’s still two more than none. But while Acer boasted to be the first to announce one such Chromebook, HP will actually have the first bite of that market. The new HP Chromebook 14 will land on shelves first and it will truly put to the test whether AMD’s system-on-chip will have more to say, no to mention more battery life, than Intel’s equivalents.

HP EliteDisplay E243p Sure View Monitor keeps shoulder surfers out

It isn’t just smartphones that are prone to having curious bystanders taking a sneak peek at the screen. Even more critical are computer screens in offices or, worse, public spaces that may be susceptible to shoulder surfing by unauthorized people, be it hackers, spies, or just curious passers-by. To help combat that, HP has developed together with 3M its “Sure View” privacy screen technology which it is now putting on its new EliteDisplay E243p, up for display, no pun intended, here at CES 2019.

HP Spectre Folio Review: A classy leather 2-in-1 ultrabook

The Spectre Folio catches the eye immediately, prompting questions like, "What the heck is that?"

Phone as a desktop: why no one bought the hype

Phone as a desktop: why no one bought the hype

Imagine this scenario. You arrive at work and very gracefully place your smartphone on a specially marked area of your desk. Almost immediately, your desk screen lights up, showing you today's tasks. Before you know it, it's lunch time and you quickly pick up your phone and head to the office cafeteria and use your phone to catch up on your social networks. Later that night at home, you dock your phone to add some finishing touches to your presentation tomorrow before finally plopping down on the couch to stream your favorite nighttime show. That was pretty much the idyllic scenario that companies like Microsoft, Samsung, and even Ubuntu maker Canonical tried to sell the public. But despite that enticing vision, it failed to take hold in the market because, like many future visions, it failed to take into account the hurdles of the present.
