HP’s Elitebook Revolve notebook to come with NFC

HP EliteBook Revolve

HP’s latest business tablet, which transforms “with a flick of the wrist” from an ultrathin notebook to a touch-enabled tablet, includes NFC.

The HP Elitebook Revolve‘s touch screen pivots to let users share their work or revolves and folds to become a tablet. The Windows 8 device also offers enterprise class docking capabilities, a magnesium chassis and a Corning Gorilla Glass screen.

The machine comes with what HP calls “secure NFC”, hinting that it may be able to handle more than simple pairing and sharing applications.

The Elitebook Revolve is expected to become available in the US in March 2013, with pricing to be announced closer to launch.

Earlier this year HP launched a hybrid laptop PC, an all-in-one PC and a mouse with on board NFC.
