FRANKFURT: HP has unveiled a new addition to its growing range of Windows 8 devices, the EliteBook Revolve, which can be used either as a laptop or a tablet.

The 11.6in device was shown briefly on stage by HP at its Discover event by Stacy Wolff, vice president of design, as the firm continues to underline its commitment to providing enterprise hardware ranging from printers to tablets.

The EliteBook Revolve is designed so the screen can be swivelled around and then laid flat to turn it into a tablet, as Wolff said the combination of the best of a laptop and tablet is increasingly in demand from employees.

As well as featuring an 11.6in HD Gorilla Glass touch-enabled display there's also a 720p HD camera, baked-in NFC technology, SSD up to 256GB and either an i3, i5 or i7 Intel processor.

There's a slot for expanding the 4GB of on-board memory too, and a SIM card slot for taking advantage of the UK's newly-gained LTE speeds.

The tablet/laptop hybrid also comes with a number of business features, including enterprise IT tools such as Active Director and a range of HP Client Management solutions. There is also HP Client Security on board.

The EliteBook Revolve will be available in the US from March 2013 with pricing set to be announced closer to the launch date. No UK or European pricing or launch data information was made available.
