HP Detachable Tablets: Envy X2, Slatebook X2, Split X2

Looks like detachable is the main keyword for folks at HP. Last year, we had a chance to see the first detachable Android tablet from Asus in 2011, the Transformer. It is a cool concept as it lets you add a hardware keyword whenever you want to do a lot of typing on the move. HP took more than 2 years to realize that detachable tablets are a good thing and now the company has listed three tablets on this not-so-new concept – Envy X2, Slatebook X2, and Split X2.
