The ElitePad 900, ENVY x2 and a History of HP Innovation

The second that I saw the new ElitePad, with its new Smart Jacket-interface, I had flashbacks to other awesome portables to come out before the modern age of all-metal design – back to some innovations that HP pioneered with the iPaq. Then there’s something like the highly-anticipated ENVY x2 Hybrid PC and its ancestor – the TC1000. What? You don’t recall the original iPaq or the TC1000? Well, Captain Short Attention Span, let’s take a quick virtual walk down memory lane to help you realize what HP created in the mobile computing space.

If you find yourself at the Computer History Museum, located in Mountain View, California – like I did this past weekend – you might spot the whole collection on display.
