Updated: HP Bodhi is officially the HP Slate 8 Pro
HP looks like it is going to launch another device running Android. A device by the codename HP “Bodhi” was found online at GFXBench today. Although it features decent hardware, details regarding what form factor it might take are not known at this stage.
After the Slate 7 and the tablet notebook hybrid, the Slatebook x2, it looks like HP is testing a new device. The specs of this device include Nvidia’s Tegra 4 CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz and a UXGA display with a resolution of 1,600 x 1,128 pixels. Usually, this screen size is found on notebooks and full-fledged monitors, so the Bodhi might more likely be another Android-Windows hybrid.
However, considering the proliferation of tablets, the Bodhi could turn out to be a 10-inch tablet, or even a smartphone. In benchmark tests, the Bodhi scored slightly ahead of the Slatebook X2, but that in itself is not conclusive of what form factor the device might take. On the software front, it seems to be running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
