HP is expected to showcase two "revolutionary" Windows 10 devices at the Computex trade show in Taiwan.
The unveiling of the devices will take place on Wednesday, but Mike Nash, head of customer experience and portfolio strategy in HP’s Personal Systems team, revealed some details of the products in a blog post.
“For those of you attending Computex, be on the lookout for a sneak peak at two future HP devices during the Microsoft keynote on 3 June, including a new ultra-portable ‘tablet first’ detachable and a revolutionary note-taking tablet,” he said.
The reference to a "tablet first detachable" hints at a device not unlike Microsoft’s Surface Pro and Surface tablets, which have been well received by the market.
Nash went on to say that the devices are ideally suited for Windows 10 and the new functionality it brings.
“Both devices show off two features I’m most excited about in Windows 10: personal assistant Cortana and Continuum, which adjusts the interface automatically no matter in what mode you are using the device.”
No other insight on the devices was provided, but the keynote is taking place soon and V3 will have all the information as it becomes available.
The revelations come in the same week as Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 will be made available as a free download to anyone with a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 machine from 29 July.
HP also used this announcement to confirm that its current devices hitting the market are all suitable for the move to Windows 10. Nash claimed that the firm had designed the units with the upgrade in mind.
"Working closely with Microsoft on Windows 10, we designed our 2015 portfolio of products to be ready for Windows 10," he said.
"Given the normal planning and release cycles for our products, we didn’t know exactly when Windows 10 would ship, so we planned our entire 2015 portfolio to be Windows 10 ready even though some of these products would initially ship with Windows 8.1, and in some cases Windows 7."
Check back with V3 tomorrow when more information on the devices should be available.
