The Verve is reporting that HP has released a Surface Pro clone which goes on sale today. No word yet whether it’s Wacom digitizer or nTrig (which I think was the downfall of the Surface 3). A quick look on Wacom’s site shows that Wacom has yet to produce a 15″ digitizer and since this Envy x2 comes in a 15″ model, it’s doubtful. Some seem to think it’s Amtel which means it’s not going to be the best for drawing according to this post.
HP is launching its own version of the Surface Pro 3 today. No, it hasn’t taken over manufacturing of Microsoft’s tablet, it’s merely imitating it. HP’s new Envy x2 has a multi-angle kickstand, a fabric keyboard cover that clicks into place with a stylus holder loop, and it all adds up to something that looks eerily similar to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 tablet. There’s a 13.3-inch model and a 15-inch version, and both ship with Intel’s latest Core M processors in a variety of configurations. Although the 13-inch model has a base display that’s 1366 x 768 resolution, it can be upgraded to match the 1920 x 1080 resolution of the base 15-inch model.
