Hewlett-Packard (HP) has made a foray into the tablet segment with the launch of ElitePad, a business tablet that is aimed at the enterprise segment.

The company, though a late entrant into the segment, introduced the tablet with an eye on tapping on mobility applications where consumers want the quick responses from the devices, according to HP Country Category Head-Personal Systems (Commercial) Sunish Raghavan.

The 10.1 inch tablet, priced Rs. 43,500 and upwards, features the optional SmartJackets which give more connectivity options, an additional battery and add-ons that enable customisation of the device.

Mr. Raghavan, who formally launched the product here on Thursday, said enterprises were increasingly moving towards “bring your own” device trend and the new device was designed to meet the associated data security aspects. It has several features such as e-printing and a spare battery that provides a 11-hour back up in addition to the eight-hour battery life.

The tablet could also double as a PC for users,, who could utilise the docking system and a key board that, in turn, would do away with the use of traditional desktop.

Designed to run on the Windows 8 platform, the new device had received good response from enterprises, he said. He, however, refused to divulge details on the company’s plans on the volumes it was expecting.
