The Consumer Electronics Week 2012 (CES 2012) kicks off in Las Vegas in a few days. And companies are now starting to prepare their gadgets for the annual technology exhibit.
HP, for example, has released a video teaser for their second Ultrabook. Called the “Spectre”, this will be their second try at Folios. The first was their 13.3-inch HP Folio unveiled November 2011.
Though there is a video for the “Spectre”, little details are revealed as to its identity. However, a leak in the FCC filing a week ago shows that the new device boasts of a 14-inch display and carries Intel’s ‘Ivy Bridge’ processors.
The CES is expected to shed the spotlight on Ultrabooks and hopefully would increase PC sales this year. According to CES representatives, there are about 50 Ultrabooks to be launched in this year’s offing. Intel is going to deliver a keynote speech to reveal the company’s latest chip generations.
Ultrabooks are designed to be portable and instant-on capabilities. Just like tablets, these said devices combine portability with performance and features of notebooks.
What is clear is that pricing will play a major role in the Ultrabook’s success or failures. Low prices along with the release of Windows 8 will definitely boost sales of these new devices.
