It’s always in fashion for our devices to be slim and streamlined. Nobody wants to carry around a brick after all. Just look at our flat screen TVs. The screen sizes get larger while the bezels shrink. It’s pretty standard.
Which is why this one has us scratching our heads. @evleaks has tweeted a new Android-powered tablet from HP and what you see here is an alleged press shot. This is perfect for those of you who can’t get enough bezel and want less screen real estate.
We have become so used to slim bezels on our tablets and smartphones, that this seems a bit shocking. Is it a joke? This bezel is much fatter than the norm these days. What else can we make out from the image, once we get past that huge bezel? It has a front-facing camera, traditional Hewlett Packard branding on the front, the classic HP logo on the back. In back there’s another camera with the speaker.
The name? Too soon to know. I vote for the HP Bezel. HPB. Maybe something classy like Be-Zel by HP.
