Windows 10 will be released in less than two weeks, and manufacturers are working hard on providing an appropriate new hardware compatible with this operating system. As one of the strongest OEMs in the market, HP will deliver a couple of new devices and for Windows 10 in the near future, along with the new BIOS security service.
First, HP announced a new service for its Elite and ZBook lines. The company will start the support of its own Sure Start BIOS-protection utility for Windows 10. This feature checks the BIOS for any malicious software and is the only service of this kind provided by HP. Along with Windows 10’s Device Guard, Sure Start will make Elite and ZBook lines one of the most secure notebook lines on the market.
Along with the new security service for BIOS, the company also announced a couple of new devices, including Bang & Olufsen limited edition of EliteBook Folio 1020 and HP Pro Tablet 608. HP launched Folio 1020 last year, and this 12-inch device is powered by an Intel Core M processor.
The newcomer, HP Pro tablet 608, is an 8-inch tablet powered by the Intel Atom-Z8500 and has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of eMMC internal storage. It features a 4:3 ratio screen with the resolution of 2048×1536 pixels.
HP still didn’t reveal the pricing plan for Bang & Olufsen edition of EliteBook Folio 1020, but we expect it to be announced sometime around the launch of the notebook, which will be this fall. While the HP Pro Tablet 608 will be available for the price of $479, and the device will be released around August.
Besides the announcement of these new devices, HP will also have some PCs with pre-installed versions of Windows 10 ready for retail stores on the launch date of the system, July 29th.
