HP has announced its Envy Note 8 Tablet, on the Windows platform and it comes in at the lower-end of the price spectrum, but don’t scoff at it just yet.
The Envy Note 8, might not satisfy everyone, but it might appeal to those who want an affordable tablet with practical features.
This new Windows tablet, starts off at $329 and includes a stylus. For $429, buyers can get the bundled keyboard, which is probably the selling point here and one that most folks might opt for.
If anyone has ever had to type on a tablet using a 3rd party keyboard, the typing experience can feel a bit cramped. HP wants to help solve that problem with its keyboard for the Envy Note 8, by offering a 10-inch wide keyboard. While it may not be a full sized-typing experience, and may still feel a bit cramped for some buyers, the larger keyboard is still a nice touch, especially with its wide trackpad located at the bottom of the hardware. HP calls this the Envy Note Keyboard Folio, and it also has a nice holding spot for that stylus. Perfect for those on the go.
The Envy Note Keyboard Folio, according to the company includes 1.5mm of keyboard travel, to which they claim is the standard for their high-end notebooks.
