Rated 5 out of 5Â by Spunky Only needs... Kit Kat
When can we expect Kit Kat? BTW, this thing is great, and the dual battery is nice. I wish the tablet's battery had some more life to it but overall it's really nice. I like the resolution, the performance, the form factor, etc.
We also need to put pressure on app makers to have printing or sharing of content so we can ePrint and Cloud Print from more places. Only the plain email program will do it but the gmail and outlook.com apps don't have any printing capability.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Happycamper57 Really a cool way to go Android Pad.
I loved this after I pulled it out of the box and it hasn't been a disappointment yet!!! Works fast and does not mind Bluetooth separate keypad nor Bluetooth speakers. All works great and thanks to the NVIDIA TEGRA CPU it is handling life without a beep. Pricing might be a little high on some views but it depends on how you're planning on using it. Shipping was super fast without any complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dave1944 Excellent Android detachable
A great Android tablet as a stand alone device - but then add in the base with a real keyboard and extra battery and it takes it to excellent. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ElViajero Excellent Value
This tablet was shipped very rapidly and I was able to immediately start up, and connect to my wireless. I downloaded several apps (VPN, Telnet, Kindle) and had those operating correctly (with very fast response!). I am impressed with the speed of this tablet, and with the added features not found on other tablets. A very nice keyboard, USB is functional, and I added memory cards to the provided slots.
Unit battery life seems to be as advertised, although I have not run it down to see if the 12 hour estimate is accurate, all indications point to a very good battery life.
My only negative point for this unit is its non-standard charging connection, it would have been nice to have been able to use one of my other chargers (USB or HP).
All in all, a very nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by EspArtur Excellent balance of functions
When I travel, I normally carry a laptop to process/save my photos,, usually 2-5 thousand., plus I also access my email via secure VPN. I browse securely to several accounts (bank, etc) so my needs are very specific. I also have a Kindle Fire HD for reading while in airports or otherwise waiting.
I have combined all these into this tablet, plus I have the advantage of 12 hours of run time. Plus the two cameras are very useful, the HP app makes them very configurable, plus zoom is nice.
My only complaint is the file system, it is difficult to find the files/fotos I save/edit. Maybe an app which emulates the familiar Windows config? Otherwise, this is an advanced piece of computing equipment which I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rshelton111 Love this tablet
What a great product. It is my second purchase from the HP Store so I know how easy it is to get what you want and to always get great service after the sale. As to the tablet, it is very solid, very fast and very easy to operate. I really like the detachable keyboard and the fact that it also has its own battery and a SD card slot. I have heard others say it is heavy, but you should remember that the keyboard has weight, it also has its own battery which adds to the weight. I find that it is easy for me to move it around and the weight, if it really is heavy is of no consequence. I would recommend this tablet to anyone.
The only suggestions I have for an even better tablet and an even better HP experience is that they should make the SD cards more useable. In other words, give the user the option of installing apps on their SD cards, not just be able to use them for storage. And, ROOT and UNLOCK the tablet so the user can have the option as to what they want to install and remove from their tablet. Sooner or later someone will root the SlateBook x2 so why not do it yourself and assure that it is a worthwhile upgrade leaving nothing to a third party to create.
