According to the information shared in a leaked video carried by technology news website BGR, Google's popular Android mobile operating system will, for the first time, power a bona-fide laptop --- the HP Slatebook 14.

The 14-inch HP Slatebook 14 touchscreen notebook will be a low-end laptop, which will be fairly akin to Google's own Chromebook line of computers. The new HP laptop will run on the Android OS version 4.2 'Jelly Bean.'

As per the leaked video, some of the most attractive features of the HP Slatebook 14 laptop include a polycarbonate shell; 14-inch touchscreen display with a full HD 1080p resolution; an Nvidia Tegra quad-core processor; 2GB of RAM; and 16GB of built-in storage capacity expandable via an SD card reader.

The Slatebook 14 will also feature Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, Beats Audio, SIM card slot, an HDMI port, and three USB ports.

Going by a 9to5Google report, the Slatebook 14 laptop will be fully certified for Google Mobile Services (GMS); thereby implying that the notebook will have access to the Google Play Store, as well as YouTube, Gmail, and Maps apps.
