                           to keep IT managers happy and touts a design that employees will crave. It offers the full
www.hp.com/go/newsroom     serviceability, enhanced security and manageability found in HP Elite PCs, and military-grade
                           durability for drops, vibration, dust, temperature extremes and high altitude.(3)

                           “Businesses used to face a tough purchase decision: How to find a product that will delight
                           employees and help them be more productive, while also making sure IT can secure and manage
                           it,” said Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Printing and Personal Systems, HP. “The HP
                           ElitePad meets all those tests. It combines the great style and user experience consumers demand
                           with the features IT requires.”

                           A tablet that is made for business
                           Ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the hand, the HP ElitePad offers a 10.1-inch diagonal
                           display, weighs just 1.5 pounds(4) and measures 9.2 millimeters (mm) thin. The 16-by-10 aspect
                           ratio maximizes the display area for ideal viewing of traditional business applications, as well as
                           video content. Precision crafted, with an eye toward fit and finish, the HP ElitePad uses stylish,
                           premium materials such as CNC-machined aluminum and Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2.

                           Powered by next-generation Intel® mobile processors, the HP ElitePad delivers PC productivity for
                           those on the go and Intel x86 compatibility for existing business application support. It is designed
                           for Windows 8 and supports touch-, pen- or voice-based input. The HP ElitePad also provides
                           power efficiency and smartphone-style convenience with compatibility for familiar Windows
                           applications, as well as easy integration into existing IT environments.

                           The unique, productivity-enhancing ecosystem of HP Smart Jackets and additional accessories
                           designed specifically for the HP ElitePad expand the tablet’s potential, turning it into a total
                           enterprise solution: (1)

Loaded with tools for mobile work or play
The HP ElitePad tablet’s 1080p front-facing video camera and 8 megapixel (MP) rear camera with
an LED flash and included CyberLink YouCam software help users easily communicate face to
face, create high-definition (HD)(6) web videos or record training videos without high production

Powered by technology from HP Labs, the company’s central research arm, new HP PageLift(7) is
an application that automatically trims, correctly lights and orients a captured image of a
whiteboard, paper contract or other document so it is ready to use or share without requiring
manual editing.

Users can easily print directly from their HP ElitePad to any ePrint-capable HP printer or to a
networked HP printer without the need for downloading drivers. HP ePrint software(8) allows users
to print remotely at more than 24,000 public locations such as hotels and business service
retailers.(9) The HP ElitePad also helps small workgroups connect with HP Wireless Hotspot, a
desktop application that allows users to share a wireless internet connection and network

Additional user-experience software includes the CyberLink Media suite, which enables users to
manage and create audio and video content with the same easy-to-use interface as other HP
business PCs. Plus, users can record and listen to audio with a stereo microphone and headset
jack that feature the richness of SRS Audio.

Information management is made easy with Evernote, which captures, saves and synchronizes
information across devices with impressively quick search capability, and Skitch software that
eases collaboration with colleagues by quickly marking up images with captions or sketches.

Manageability, deployment and security for IT environments
The HP ElitePad offers a long life cycle, stable image and HP Global Series Support, all of which IT
managers expect in an enterprise tablet. It also features a one-year standard warranty, with the
option for a three-year warranty via HP Care Pack Services. The HP ElitePad is fully serviceable
with an optional, industry-unique service tool for HP Self-Maintainers that allows customers to

                                                                                          Page 2 of 4
access the panel, battery, motherboard and unibody chassis, helping reduce downtime and keep
sensitive data and devices in-house.(11)

In addition, organizations will appreciate the enterprise-caliber data, device and identity protection
from HP Client Security,(12) including HP BIOS Protection, Security Manager and HP Drive
Encryption. Additional security features include Device Access Manager, Computrace(13) and

Device deployment and ongoing support and maintenance are made easy with x86 compatibility
and support for HP Client Management solutions. The LANDesk Management Suite(1) also
increases security and eases management by providing exclusive tools to locate and protect data
on lost devices, remotely capture SIM card info for mass WWAN activation(14) and
enforce geographic policies to remotely lock, full wipe or selectively wipe data.

The HP ElitePad 900 is expected to be available in the United States in January 2013. Pricing
