HP's Android notebook gets a price increase at launch
The SlateBook 14 notebook was
first leaked back in April
, and HP
officially announced the notebook in early June
. What makes the device somewhat intriguing isn’t the fact that it uses a Google-based operating system, but that it uses Android (which is usually seen on smartphones and tablets) instead of Chrome OS.
, HP said that it went in this direction because its customers said they wanted Android-based notebook computers. We can’t fault HP for answering the calls of its customers, but we doubt that they’ll like the fact that the price for the SlateBook 14 has increased by $30 since it was first announced.

"Yet tablet sales are shrinking"
Where do you see tablet sales shrinking? Growth has slowed, but it's not shrinking.
"HP seems so utterly directionless."
Yeah, that is true. A decade of piss poor leadership takes it's toll on a company. I too would like to know what customers were "asking for this" as they say. I think HP is listening to the wrong customers for the past decade.

He just makes up whatever he needs to. It's ridiculous that something that might barely sell thousands of units is viewed as such a threat or offense to their sensibilities.
What's funny is that this guy will rave to you about the Surface all day long, then he also says "tablet sales are shrinking" when it's convenient.
