Without richer and eye-appealing vivid display, no tablets can win consumer’s heart. HP ElitePad 900 has screen resolution of 1280*800 on a 10 inch IPS display protected by Gorilla Glass. Going by screen resolution, that’s less and not great for users like me who prefer densely packed pixels making higher resolution. It doesn’t meet our expectation, or say demand as small smartphones sports such a similar resolution these days. It offers 16:10 aspect ration and wide viewing angles. 8 megapixel rear camera and front camera supporting 1080p video shooting for HD video-chatting experience.
