HP today expanded its portfolio of digital entertainment offerings with a new consumer PC category and a broad lineup of digital entertainment products and services that aim to fundamentally change the way people connect, access and enjoy high-definition and personal digital content.
Announced at the 2007 CES, the offerings include the industry's first all-in-one touch-screen PC and touch-screen consumer tablet PC based on Microsoft Windows Vista, HP's first home media server, nine new high-definition TVs, a Blu-ray disc writer, new digital content delivery services and home automation solutions.
The new HP TouchSmart PC is the industry's first all-in-one PC based on Microsoft Windows Vista with one-touch wireless access to information, communication and entertainment through a customizable desktop screen. Featuring a large 19-inch wide adjustable touch-screen display, photo printer, remote control and personal video recorder, the HP TouchSmart PC enables "walk-up computing," the ability to quickly and easily access digital content wherever life happens in the home.
HP also introduced the industry's first consumer tablet PC optimized for Microsoft Windows Vista and on-the-go entertainment. The HP Pavilion tx1000 Entertainment Notebook PC features a touch-screen display, built-in miniature remote control, HP QuickPlay instant movie viewing feature, karaoke and a screen that swivels 180 degrees and folds flat for working or enjoying movies in tight travel spaces such as airplanes or trains.
