“The ElitePad 1000G2 might look just like any other slate, but a range of accessories make it ideal for specific use-cases”

HP has always been a dominant player in the desktops and laptops segment. While it still remains popular in that category, it hasn’t been able to carry its leadership to the burgeoning category of smartphones and tablets and lost to biggies like Samsung and Apple. Now, the brand has taken an interesting approach to remaining relevant. Along with targeting consumers, it’s also aiming at enterprises and has introduced a range of tablets and hybrids meant for this segment.

We have already taken a quick look at the incredibly useful Duet Pen-laden HP Pro Slate 8. Now let’s check out another device from HP’s roster – the ElitePad 1000 G2. While this tablet might seems ordinary in terms of hardware, it comes with an entire ecosystem of accessories, making it extremely useful for specific use-cases. We’ll discuss all this and more in our pictorial hands-on of the slate. Let’s begin.

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is based around a 10.1-inch display with 16:10 aspect ratio, which features a resolution of 1,900 x 1,200 pixels. Colours pop out on the screen, and it displays Sharp text too. Corning’s third-gen Gorilla Glass makes the display panel resilient against scratches.

The slate might not be thinnest at 9.2mm, but feels well in hand thanks to its lightweight build tipping the scales at 620g.

With a dual-colour treatment of black and grey, the tablet features an alluring look.

When held in landscape mode, the ElitePad 1000 G2 sports the power button and 3.5mm interface on the top, while the base plays host to the dual speakers and a proprietary port for docking. The volume keys are available on the right.

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is as loaded as it can get for a slate. It comes equipped with a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3795 quad-core CPU which is clocked at 1.6GHz. The powerful processor is further boosted by a generous 4GB of RAM, offering buttery-smooth performance. Storage-wise, it comes in two flavours offering 64GB or 128GB memory.

Now, let’s take a look at the accessories that can extend the functionality of the HP ElitePad 1000 G2. With a simple dock, you get four USB ports, allowing you to use it with a USB keyboard and mouse, or other USB-based accessories.

HP is also selling a keyboard-cum-cover for the ElitePad 1000 G2 monikered 'Productivity Jacket'. It also offers two USB ports and an SD card reader.

With 'Retail Jacket', the slate gets a rugged case making it durable. Built in hand and shoulder straps make it easy to lug around too. The company will also be selling another jacket which will have a mobile payment device, making it a portable system to be used at retail stores.

There are many more accessories such as a 'Healthcare jacket' for the ElitePad 1000 G2. Targeted at specific industries, the ElitePad 1000 G2 will be available at a starting point of Rs 85,000 for its rugged and healthcare editions. The Retail Jacket for the tablet will be available for Rs 26,000, while for Rs 29,000, buyers will get a jacket which has an additional battery. HP might be onto something with its new strategy since most industries refrain from moving to new technologies as they have to change their old practices, but if solutions like the ElitePad 1000 G2 are able to make work for professionals easier and more efficient, there’s no reason they wouldn't be interested.
