Go big or go home: That seems to be H-P's (HPQ -2.9%) thinking in launching the Slate 21 AIO, a 21.5" Android desktop that, like Lenovo's Horizon 27 PC, can morph into an oversized tablet (more suitable for coffee tables than backpacks), and costs a mere $400. Meg Whitman has indicated H-P plans to embrace the Android tablet market, but intense competition means the company will need to work hard to stand out. The 21 AIO is being announced a month after H-P unveiled the Slatebook x2, a 10" Android convertible. Both devices rely on Nvidia's (NVDA -1.1%) Tegra 4 processor.
