    HP has announced the new Pro x2 for business users. It will directly compete with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, because both share the same display size: 12,5"

    They also promised, that the Tablet will reach retail stores in September.

    The Tablet itself will be available with and w/o the keyboard dock.

    Tablet:
    * fanless Core i3 up to i5 and vPro option ( I guess it will be Haswell and not Broadwell technology)
    * up to 8GB RAM
    * up to 512GB (m.2) SSD or 256GB self-encrypting drive (SSD?)
    * 16:9 displays with 1366 HD + 1920 FullHD
    * HP Client Security, HP Sure start, Smart Card Reader, TPM and and optional fingerprint reader
    * Wacom Digitizer with 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity - battery free Wacom Pen like Asus Vivotab Note 8
    * microSD slot
    * battery for up to 8hours
    * dual HD webcam (front/back)
    * optional: LTE

    Keyboard dock (full-size) - connector doesn't look pretty like the Spectre x2
    * shares the same look with the new Split x2
    * VGA, DisplayPort
    * 2x USB 3.0
    * Side docking connector for HP UltraSlim dock (same as EliteBook Folio 1020)
    * Backlit keyboard
    * (Full) SD slot
    * 2nd battery for a combined total runtime of 14h and 15 minutes

    Keyboard dock - travel/light version:
    * w/o battery
    * less ports
    * acts also as a kickstand

    Weight: ~4 pound with fullsize dock


    Yeah, I'm so happy that HP is back from grave!

    Fujitsu Q704 competition for, hopefully, far less money. I do not see this competing with the Surface Pro 3 at all at this point; this is much more of a laptop with a detachable screen like the Fujitsu than the Surface. It will also be interesting to see if the X2 612 will be full mil spec or not.

    I think that should be 1920, not 1980. And maybe write that it's 16:9.

    As mentioned by Edaniels, that's only with the heaviest keyboard option attached.

    Edit: thanks!

    just checked out HP website. Hope they come up with different docking solutions. Docking the whole unit with keyboard is subpar. Lost desk space, not to mention constant exposure to debris getting into keyboard while not in use.

    It looks to be offering the two same display options as the ThinkPad Yoga, which is disappointing from a color gamut stand point. While I found backlighting great on the TPY, the colors were a bit meh, compared to the 13in Yoga 2 with the 1080p display next it, and the Surface Pro 2 nearby. :-/ But, on the plus size full size SD, two full size USB ports and up to 14 hours is pretty tempting.

    I'm finding with my Q702, that pretty much the keyboard with the battery stays in my desk drawer. Maybe use it once in a great while when meetings overlap and I'm away from my desk too long. I've had to start pulling the battery out of the thing to make sure it wasn't drained when I actually needed it.

    A 2760P successor? None of that Atmel crap?

    Welcome back, HP.

    We've missed you... *Sniff*... I've missed you...
