HP Introduces Mobile Point-of-sale Tablet for Retailers

HP today announced the
HP Slate 2 Tablet PC with expanded touch capabilities, enhanced multitasking performance and embedded security, providing added flexibility to mobile business users.

The company also announced a new notebook PC targeting business, education and government customers.

The HP Slate 2 Tablet PC provides instant deployment for business and vertical markets such as education, healthcare, government and retail, where jobs frequently take users away from a traditional desk. With a full-featured Microsoft Windows®(1) environment, the 1.5 pound(2) HP Slate 2 Tablet PC provides professionals with the flexibility to create, edit and review content on one highly mobile and lightweight device.

“HP is dedicated to the tablet PC category and continues to listen to customers and improve the product in ways that best address their business needs,” said Dan Forlenza, vice president and general manager, Commercial Managed IT Segment, HP. “The HP Slate includes the right mix of rich features, support for custom-built applications, and the security and connectivity needed for today’s highly mobile and rigorous day-to-day professional environment.”

The HP Slate 2 Tablet PC features an 8.9-inch diagonal capacitive multitouch display for touch and pen input plus includes a new Swype keyboard. The Swype applet enhances the touch experience with comfortable and efficient data entry via one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard.

The HP Slate 2 Tablet PC comes with an Intel® Atom Z670 processor with mSATA SSM technology to deliver faster boot times, improved battery life of up to six hours(3) and increased performance for business customers.(4)

“The Slate Tablet PC’s combination of an Intel Atom processor and flash memory deliver excellent performance,” said Dr. Rick LeMoine of Sharp HealthCare in San Diego. “I don’t know how they do it, but sometimes it seems to me that the Slate runs these applications faster than my desktop PC does.”

Additional hardware and software enhancements to the HP Slate 2 Tablet PC’s security and experience include:

  • A TPM Embedded Security Chip protects data – from email to information on the hard drive.
  • Embedded Security for HP ProtectTools provides user control and management of the TPM chip to increase secure user authentication, improved personal secure drive integrity, secure email and support protected digital certificate applications.
  • BIOS support for Computrace Pro(5) helps protect against data theft by allowing customers to remotely delete data at the file, directory or operating system level and keep confidential information more secure.
  • Through a single user interface,
    HP Connection Manager offers easy control over wireless connections, including Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Bluetooth® and optional integrated 3G Mobile Broadband(6) for convenient internet and intranet access from more places around the world.

For remote workers, a front-facing VGA webcam enables videoconferencing, and a 3-megapixel camera on the back allows for still image and video capture. SRS Premium Sound provides optimized audio settings for voice and multimedia applications and an SD card slot allows for expanded storage and sharing capabilities. The HP Slate Dock provides device connection via two USB 2.0 ports and an HDMI port.

Flexible HP Slate solutions for business

The HP Slate 2 Tablet PC comes with optional additional accessories and business solutions including the HP Retail Mobile Point of Sale (POS) Case, which features an integrated magnetic stripe reader and barcode scanner for retailers. The case attaches to the HP Slate 2 and creates a secure portable POS solution that personalizes transactions, boosts productivity and sales, and integrates into existing application and hardware infrastructure. In addition, the HP Slate 2 helps retailers combine online and enterprise access to applications and services including task management workflows, inventory data and custom orders.

The optional
HP Slate Bluetooth® Keyboard and Case accessory is a new sleek, stylish executive-class carrying solution that bundles the HP Slate 2, a rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard,
HP Slate Digital Pen, and ID, business, or credit cards inside a single case.

Lightweight business notebooks

Designed for mobile professionals, the
HP 3115m offers up to 11.5 hours(3) of battery life, flexible wireless capabilities,(7) an 11.6-inch diagonal LED-backlit HD(8) display, Beats Audioâ„¢ and a high-definition (HD)(8) webcam for collaboration with peers. The new AMD E450 dual-core(9) Fusion APU with AMD Radeon HD 6320 graphics provides greater performance than a netbook without weighing professionals down.

Pricing and availability(10)

  • The HP Slate 2 Tablet PC starts at $699 and is expected to be available worldwide later this month.
  • The HP 3115m starts at $429 and is expected to be available Nov. 11 in the Americas only.

HP Expands Latex Printing Portfolio, Offering Improved Versatility, Durability Compared with Eco-solvent Technology

HP Expands Latex Printing Portfolio, Offering Improved Versatility, Durability Compared with Eco-solvent Technology

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 2, 2011

View the press kit

HP today introduced two HP Designjet printers capable of handling a broader range of indoor and outdoor signage applications with better durability than eco-solvent inks.(1)

Furthering HP’s
strategy to disrupt the eco-solvent market, the 104-inch-wide
HP Designjet L28500 Printer delivers speeds up to 70 percent faster(2) than the HP Designjet L25500 Printer, while the 61-inch
HP Designjet L26500 Printer is ideal for customers entering the growing soft-signage(3) market.

Both systems feature new HP 792 Latex Designjet Inks, which produce rich blacks and glossy results on banners and self-adhesive vinyl, and offer double-sided printing capabilities(4) with less user intervention and more accurate, automated registration. Compatible with more than
500 media solutions, including the new
HP Double-sided HDPE Reinforced Banner material,
HP Latex Inks provide a consistent, reliable performance across a variety of substrates.

HP also launched
HP Latex University, a set of training materials and application workshops led by industry experts, as well as the
HP Ecosolutions Trained Printing Company program for educating HP Latex Printing Technologies users in sustainability best practices.

“With about 9,000 HP Latex Ink systems installed worldwide, HP is offering a superior alternative to eco-solvent solutions that delivers the versatility and ease of use our customers demand while lowering their impact on the environment,” said
Santiago Morera, vice president and general manager, Large-format Printing Business, HP. “By allowing customers to cost-effectively print a wide array of new applications and providing the training required to succeed, our updated HP Latex portfolio helps PSPs differentiate their businesses and seize new growth opportunities.”

Driving business growth with broad application versatility

Ideal for high-impact point-of-purchase displays, soft signage,(3) bus shelters, vehicle graphics and more, the HP Designjet L28500 and L26500 Printer series can print on a broad range of materials, including eco-solvent compatible media and low-cost uncoated options.

The new devices produce 1,200-dpi output with outdoor display permanence of up to three years unlaminated or five years laminated(1) for high-quality, long-lasting prints. The output also dries inside the printer, boosting productivity for double-sided print jobs, and allowing immediate finishing or use.(4)

“Compared with the solvent world that we’re used to dealing in, the HP Designjet L26500 Printer is a breath of fresh air. It allows us to laminate immediately, installing at the same time, and do reprints in real time, increasing our productivity considerably,” said Duston Noble, founder of Dallas-based Wrap Experts and a beta tester of the HP Designjet L26500 Printer. “We want to have the best equipment that makes our job easier and faster, so we love the fact that we can print and laminate jobs all in the same hour if we need to.”

With new soft signage printing capabilities, customers can produce applications from retail banners to tradeshow signs and interior décor, which are easy to fold and pack, inexpensive to ship, simple to hang and have improved durability outdoors.(5)

Building on the introduction of
HP HDPE Reinforced Banner, the new printers also are optimized to work with new HP Double-sided HDPE Reinforced Banner, a compelling alternative to PVC scrim for advertising applications. The substrate offers the image quality, durability and tear strength of standard vinyl without the environmental disadvantages of a PVC-based substrate.

Availability of the HP Designjet L26500 Printer will vary by region beginning Nov. 3. The HP Designjet L28500 Printer is expected to be available Jan. 20, 2012.(6)

Designed with the environment in mind

Helping to address the demands of environmentally conscious print service providers (PSPs) and their clients, HP Latex Inks produce odorless prints.(7) These water-based inks are nonflammable and noncombustible,(8) and, unlike many eco-solvent inks, they do not require hazard warning labels and contain no hazardous air pollutants.(9) Additionally, no special ventilation equipment(10) or external dryer is required for safe and productive operation, helping to keep energy costs down.

HP 792 Designjet ink cartridges are now
Eco Mark certified(11) by the
Japan Environment Association, demonstrating relatively few environmental impacts through the product life cycle from production to disposal. PSPs can return their HP 792 Latex Designjet supplies through
HP’s free, convenient recycling program,(12) including ink cartridges, printheads, the printhead cleaning cartridge and the printhead cleaning container.

A recycling program also is available for a range of HP High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Polyester (PET) printing materials, including the new HP Double-sided HDPE Reinforced Banner.(13)

Additionally, the new printing systems reduce the amount of ink used during maintenance routines compared to eco-solvent technology.(14)

Application and sustainability education for HP Latex customers

Now available through
HP Capture, HP Latex University provides PSPs with training to successfully produce a wide range of outdoor and indoor wide-format graphics applications using HP Latex Printing Technologies.

By signing into HP Latex University, PSPs can access free application workshops led by specialists, online webinars and other tools that help maximize the use of their technology. The first webinar series kicks off in November and focuses on producing vehicle graphics and textiles.

Also available through HP Capture, all HP Latex Printing Technologies users can now participate in the free HP Ecosolutions Trained Printing Company program. This downloadable training is available in 10 languages to coach PSPs to take advantage of the environmental profile of their HP Latex printers, build an ongoing commitment to sustainability within their businesses and engage clients on their sustainability goals.

PSPs that complete the training will receive a framed certificate and an icon identifying them as an HP Ecosolutions Trained Printing Company that they may use for promotional purposes.

HP Selected for Veterans Affairs Contracts

IT modernization improves healthcare for U.S. veterans

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 31, 2011


HP today announced that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has selected HP Enterprise Services as a prime contractor for the VA Transformation Twenty-One Total Technology (T4) program.

HP Enterprise Services also has been awarded the Enrollment Modernization Technical Support task order under the Veterans Relationship Management (VRM) Information Technology Solutions and Support Services (ITSS) program contract vehicle.

As prime contractor for T4 and VRM, HP will support the agency’s enterprise-wide modernization to enable improved access to benefits and healthcare for veterans.

Under the VA T4 multiple-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract, worth up to $12 billion, HP will compete for task orders to provide advanced technology solutions across multiple functional areas. The contract has a five-year base period and serves as a centralized source for the VA to buy a wide range of IT services. Expediting the acquisition and delivery of IT services will enable the agency to rapidly achieve its goal of providing world-class benefits and services to veterans.

Additionally, HP will compete for task orders under the $480 million VA VRM ITSS multiple-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract. This relationship management contract vehicle, which has a five-year base period, was developed to establish on-demand access to benefits information and services for veterans.

As a VRM ITSS contractor, HP was recently awarded an Enrollment Modernization Technical Support task order to provide
applications development services. To ensure accurate and timely customer service for veterans, HP will implement an integrated IT infrastructure that will consolidate patient and military data. This consolidation will improve data sharing within the VA as well as with external departments such as the U.S. Department of Defense.

“To better serve the evolving needs of veterans while embracing advances in healthcare, the VA has implemented IT reform initiatives that will drive improvements in the delivery of benefits and coordinated healthcare,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president and general manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “As a VA T4 and VRM vendor, HP will enable the VA to easily adopt innovative technology and processes that will help ensure reliable, secure access to benefits and healthcare for all veterans.”

HP will be teaming with numerous small and veteran-owned businesses to enhance overall service offerings to the VA and meet the agency’s diverse mission-critical needs. HP has provided support services to U.S. government agencies for more than 45 years, including building, integrating, securing and operating some of the most complex environments in the world.

For the past 12 years, HP Enterprise Services has successfully delivered innovative solutions, software design and development, system engineering, infrastructure support, architecture, clinical informatics, and management resources that support the VA’s national as well as field-based programs.

In support of the VA’s goal to provide timely access to benefits and high-quality healthcare to veterans over their lifetimes, HP offers comprehensive, secure technology solutions on time and on budget. In a world of continuous connectivity, HP enables agencies to become
Instant-On Governments with technology, security and innovation embedded throughout their organizations to deliver immediate services to citizens and clients.

HP Shapes the Future of Extreme Low-energy Server Technology

HP server and infrastructure innovations advance computing at massive scale

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 1, 2011

View the press kit

HP today announced a new industry program comprising a new server development platform, customer discovery lab and partner ecosystem to help customers significantly reduce complexity, energy use and costs.

HP’s new program, dubbed Project Moonshot, combines with HP
Converged Infrastructure technology to allow the sharing of resources – including storage, networking, management, power and cooling – across thousands of servers. It paves the way to the future of low-energy computing for emerging web, cloud and massive scale environments.

Project Moonshot is designed to fuel the advancement of low-energy server technology, while promoting industry collaboration to break new ground in “hyperscale” computing environments such as cloud services and on-demand computing.

Through these efforts, data center efficiencies are expected to reach new heights for select workloads and applications, consuming up to 89 percent less energy and 94 percent less space, while reducing overall costs up to 63 percent compared to traditional server systems.(1)

For companies with thousands of servers delivering web services, social media and simple content delivery applications, Project Moonshot is designed to deliver improved simplicity while achieving energy and cost savings never before possible.

Project Moonshot is based on experience gained through HP’s leading low-energy innovations such as
HP Data Center Smart Grid, which enables customers to double or triple their data center capacity,(2) as well as the recently announced
HP EcoPOD, the world’s most efficient data center. The Project Moonshot infrastructure is an extension of the industry-leading
HP ProLiant brand of servers, which incorporates traditional x86 processors from Intel and AMD, and which has been the top server choice for 61 quarters.(3)

“Companies with hyperscale environments are facing a crisis in capacity that requires a fundamental change at the architectural level,” said Paul Santeler, vice president and general manager, Hyperscale Business Unit, Industry Standard Servers and Software, HP. “HP has a strong track record of leading market transitions that enable our clients to stay ahead of the technology curve, maximize their ability to innovate and speed their time to market of new services while reducing costs and energy use.”

Unlocking the potential of extreme low-energy servers

Project Moonshot is a multiyear, multi-phased program that builds on HP’s experience powering the world’s largest cloud infrastructures(2) and 10 years of extensive
low-energy computing infrastructure research from
HP Labs, the company’s central research arm.

Reinventing the traditional approach to data center infrastructure by using Converged Infrastructure as its foundation, Project Moonshot unlocks the promise of emerging extreme low-energy servers by pooling resources in a highly federated environment to radically reduce space requirements, management complexity and energy consumption. It includes three essential elements to support the industry’s evolution to hyperscale computing:

  • The HP Redstone Server Development Platform is the first in a line of HP server development platforms that feature extreme low-energy server processors. Initially incorporating Calxeda EnergyCoreâ„¢ ARM® Cortexâ„¢ processors, future Redstone versions will include Intel® Atomâ„¢-based processors as well as others. HP Redstone is designed for testing and proof of concept. It incorporates more than 2,800 servers in a single rack, reducing cabling, switching and the need for peripheral devices, and delivering a 97 percent reduction in complexity.(1) The initial HP Redstone platform is expected to be available in limited volumes to select customers in the first half of next year.
  • The HP Discovery Lab enables clients to experiment, test and benchmark applications on the HP Redstone Server Development Platform, and other extreme low-energy platforms, as well as on traditional servers. The first lab is scheduled to open in Houston in January, with additional sites planned to open in Europe and Asia. With remote or onsite access, clients can work directly with HP engineers and industry peers to learn about the benefits of extreme low-energy servers for their specific application needs.
  • The HP Pathfinder Program, part of the
    HP AllianceONE partner program, is dedicated to client discovery efforts across the data center. It also encourages development of elements of the Project Moonshot program within open industry standards. The program includes independent software vendors – compute, storage and networking partners who contribute hardware, software and technical expertise. Initial participants are expected to include AMD, ARM Holdings, Calxeda, Canonical and Red Hat, with additional partners to be announced as the program develops.

“The volume of data processed in financial markets has increased exponentially, and traditional scale-up or scale-out architectures are struggling to keep up with demand without vastly increasing cost and power usage,” said Niall Dalton, director of High-Frequency Trading at Cantor Fitzgerald, a company that is currently evaluating the technology. “HP is taking a holistic approach to solving this problem and working to bring unprecedented energy and cost savings for tomorrow’s large-scale, data-intensive applications.”

HP to Keep PC Division

Continued combination of HP and its Personal Systems Group expected to deliver greater customer and shareholder value

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 27, 2011


HP today announced that it has completed its evaluation of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems Group (PSG) and has decided the unit will remain part of the company.

“HP objectively evaluated the strategic, financial and operational impact of spinning off PSG. It’s clear after our analysis that keeping PSG within HP is right for customers and partners, right for shareholders, and right for employees,” said
Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive officer. “HP is committed to PSG, and together we are stronger.”

The strategic review involved subject matter experts from across the businesses and functions. The data-driven evaluation revealed the depth of the integration that has occurred across key operations such as supply chain, IT and procurement. It also detailed the significant extent to which PSG contributes to HP’s solutions portfolio and overall brand value. Finally, it also showed that the cost to recreate these in a standalone company outweighed any benefits of separation.

The outcome of this exercise reaffirms HP’s model and the value for its customers and shareholders. PSG is a key component of HP’s strategy to deliver higher value, lasting relationships with consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses and enterprise customers. The HP board of directors is confident that PSG can drive profitable growth as part of the larger entity and accelerate solutions from other parts of HP’s business.

PSG has a history of innovation and technological leadership as well as an established record of industry-leading profitability. It is the No. 1 manufacturer of personal computers in the world with revenues totaling $40.7 billion for fiscal year 2010.

“As part of HP, PSG will continue to give customers and partners the advantages of product innovation and global scale across the industry’s broadest portfolio of PCs, workstations and more,” said
Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Personal Systems Group, HP. “We intend to make the leading PC business in the world even better.”
