HP plans to launch a new tablet with an 8 inch display, Windows 10 software, an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor, and support for a stylus and keyboard.

It’s called the HP Envy Note 8, and while the company hasn’t officially unveiled the tablet yet, details are starting to emerge.

The tablet is mentioned in a handful of support documents on the HP website, and it looks like HP’s Swiss website briefly hosted a product listing for the tablet. That page has since been removed, but you might be able to view a Google cached version.

The HP Envy Note 8 features an Intel Atom x5-8300 processor, a micro USB port, microSD card slot, and micro SIM card slot for use with 4G LTE networks.

It has a 5MP rear camera with auto-focus support and the tablet comes with a keyboard case with a microfiber cover and stand fr the tablet, allowing you to use the Envy Note 8 like a tiny notebook. The tablet also comes with a stylus.

There are no details about the screen resolution, memory or storage capacity, but we do know that the tablet has an accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and GPS. FCC documents also suggest the tablet will have 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth.

The Envy Note 8 tablet measures 8.6″ x 5″ x 0.3″ and the keyboard cover is 10.3″ x 6.7″ x 0.4″.

  1. I have it’s business brother in hand, the Pro 608 G1. So far, it’s a pretty nice tablet, but in ” HP Fashion” BLB on the display is pretty bad, and the tablet get’s too hot when charging. Come to think of it, I can’t use the tablet while it’s charging or it will lock up. I have more testing to do, but it just doesn’t seem as polished as it should be.

  2. Was kind of interested in the Win tablets once Win10 launched. But now with all the privacy issues I don’t think I am. They like to say it is the same as Google with Android but that is not the case at all. With Google I know who sees any data – Google. And only Google. With Windows I have no idea who gets to see what. ‘Trusted Partners’ – trusted by whom? Not me. And what is the extent of data they get? Unknown.
    I’m sure it is anonymized but it’s been shown over and over that it isn’t hard to match enough data to an actual identity. That’s makes it all the more valuable as marketing data to be used or sold. This is not the same at all as Google who keeps all the data and sells against it.
    Meanwhile you cannot have the features of a connected account on the tablets/home-computer etc without having a good deal of that stuff going on it seems.
    Too bad.

    1. O&O’s ShutUp10 is your best friend. Wouldn’t use 10 if this didn’t exist.

      1. Thanks I’ll look into it. Right now I’ve just shut all that stuff off and am running with only local accounts.

    2. Dude quit whining it seems you know nothing about the internet. If you connect to the internet with anything and an hacker wants to get to you it doesn’t matter which OS, Device or the country you are they will get to you.

      If they can Hack Pentagon who are you ? and You Don’t know what Google is doing with your Data so dude take a chill pill.

      1. There is a vast difference between being the object of intentional attack by capable attackers and being one of the casual herd sold on by the very people I paid $120 to for a desktop OS.

    3. Only “Google” sees your data? How do you know that? And what is this “Google”? It is not a single guy sitting somewhere and not telling nobody nothing…
      Additionally the “privacy” issues of Windows 10 were – as usual 🙁 – greatly exaggerated by the media. Windows 10 just has a lot of options what to share of your data and what not. Depending on which mag you read of course… 😉
      TBH, I don’t trust Google, Microsoft or Apple or Facebook so only chance would be to don’t use anything. But of the 4 I’d trust Google and FB the least as they make money with data. Apple lives from hardware, Microsoft from Software. Google from ads and they definitely share data with ad providers etc.

      1. ‘Know’ is a strong word but is commonly used in such situations. I mean, I only ‘know’ we have a rover on Mars because Nasa says we do. I trust them though and have seen no credible evidence to the contrary. The same is true of Google. It’s what they’ve said and I trust they aren’t fibbing.
        The privacy issues of Win10 have been exaggerated but then so has their suppression been exaggerated. I voiced myself pretty clearly. Redmond only alludes vaguely to who sees the data and doesn’t say much at all about what the data is.
        If you think they built all that stuff into Win10 for the benefit of advertisers and are not getting paid for it then I don’t know what to say. Their ‘trusted partners’ and the ability to use unique advertising identification for accounts isn’t something they did on a whim and isn’t something they are doing for free.

        1. thanks for the sensible answer, almost thought first post was a troll, sorry 🙂
          Guess is ends up who you trust, yes. I actually don’t trust Google too much simply as they got enough data already, still the biggest (and sadly best, although I use Duck Duck Go more and more) search engine. And as said, they depend on data and advertising in contrast to some other companies. I guess >90-95% of Google money is coming from ads, for Microsoft this is more like <3-5%(?).
          Free is nice but I guess free also means somewhere has to come the money from. Android, Gmail, Gdocs are free compared to Office, Windows (only update to 10 is free). Interesting how this will be going with the current discussion of ad blockers on iOS…

          1. No I wasn’t trolling. Though I am perhaps too ready to discuss my dislike of Win10 adding these features which have led to privacy concerns at all.
            I did not have a PC eligible for upgrade but was running VIsta on a machine which at least one person really needed to have Windows on. It really needed to be upgraded so I purchased a copy of Win10 for the full $120 retail the day it came out for digital download. I built a new system to put it on. Having just paid the cash I was very unhappy to find, what are to me, seeming invasions of privacy.
            It is, as you say, a matter of who you trust. For my part I’m totally OK with Google as they have explained their business to my satisfaction and haven’t seen anything to show them dishonest about it. I also like the way they spend their money generally.
            In the end I’m happy somebody is willing to pay them for ads which I don’t look at anyway really.
            I might ultimately feel the same about Microsoft if they would give me the chance by being explicit about what they are doing. Instead it was not really mentioned at all until they needed to as others discovered and pointed it out.
            Also if they are going to make money on the OS like that then they should be giving it away. I’ve never had a bill from Google unless I rented a movie from them. And from them I have devices with two operating systems, online storage, free e-mail for many years, free office apps, etc…

          2. so Google is just giving stuff away, for free, no strings attached?! How do you think they are making money, making all the “free” stuff is not free at all…
            And “they explained their business”? Sorry but with such big companies nobody can explain and understand all, the customer the least. Sorry but I think you are a tiny bit naive regarding Google and privacy 🙁

          3. Google has explained their business quite a lot, including at various time what they look at for ad sales and what they don’t (though everyone always assumes everything they do is looked at).
            My point was quite simple. Google gives me the services in exchange for selling ads on my data against my usage of those services.
            Windows I paid $120 straight cash (credit card really) for their OS only to find they had the same notion in mind of also selling my information they’d gather using that OS as well.
            I don’t mind what Google does and am not in the slightest ignorant of it. I might be OK with what Redmond does too if they’d say exactly what it is and didn’t endeavor to do it without a mention using software I paid them $120 for.

    4. Personally, I don’t really care about the privacy issues. I make my accounts with Microsoft and Google as anonymous as possible anyways. If someone puts together the puzzle pieces, and discovers that I like Neapolitan ice cream, and Kubrick films, my anonymous online handle doesn’t stand to suffer much embarrassment.

  3. I wonder what would work better for taking notes, 8 inch windows tablet or something bigger like surface 3 or pro 3?

    1. Depends on the kind of notes being taken and how it will be used, larger is generally better for dealing with PDFs, corroborating, doing side by side comparisons, creative work, work that requires more details, etc.

      While smaller tablets are better for on the go usages, quick notes, etc… and of course the size differences usually also involves performance range differences that could also effect what you do, as well as weight, thickness, etc factors that effect user ergonomics…

      Not to mention the type of pen being used for the note taking, which can effect whether there is lag, range of features like pressure sensitivity, whether additional button functions are available, whether the pen requires a battery, ease of use and whether the pen can be stored in the device or not, and how well it’s support by both the OS and apps…

    2. As one who has used pen based 13″ and 5″ (yes, five) tablets and 9″, 10″, and 8″ touch and pen based tablets, I’d offer this addition to what CyberGusa said. If you are annotating a document (Word, PDF, whatever) bigger is better – your notes can be done at 100% size. However, if you are taking notes in a meeting or class, weight comes into play and larger tablets are harder to hold in one hand while using the other to ink (which I find easier than resting the tablet on a table to take notes). For my note taking, I prefer a smaller, under a pound, tablet which I can use like a steno pad.

        1. An OQO 02 – about 3″x5″x1″, 1 lb., Wacom stylus, sliding keyboard with a track stick. It was a brilliant, pocketable tablet that was a few CPU generations before its time. The CPU ran hot and fried the motherboard in about two years by which time the company was bankrupt. I loved it.
