This blog post also talks about why HP has introduced this giant Android tablet.

“Honestly, that larger screen allows for a better shared experience. This could replace one or two mobile devices in your home that could be used as a shared device for the house. Creating a large-screened device with touch functionality, we thought we could unlock more uses,” HP’s Eric Wiggins notes.

HP Slate 21 joins HP’s other Slate-series Android devices like Slatebook X2.
