PC and printer major HP Inc on Friday brought world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop “OMEN X 2S” to India for a starting price of Rs 209,990.

HP has added an additional second screen to the “OMEN X 2S” in the form of a six-inch (1080p) touchscreen in between the main screen and keypad that lets players message friends on WhatsApp, browse music streaming services, watch YouTube or even serve as a hub for “OMEN Command Center” software.

The “OMEN X 2S” has a real-time, screen mirroring feature that can cut and magnify parts of the main screen — including copying the map portion of a racing game — to the second screen, ensuring that vision is centered and head movement more vertical than horizontal, the company said in a statement.

“At HP, we share our users’ passion and love for the game — be it beginners, enthusiasts or professionals. We have engineered the best experiences based on user insights to enable a holistic and exciting gaming ecosystem for the modern gamers in India,” said Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India.

The device is 20-mm thin (20 per cent reduction in thickness over previous versions) with a full-metal chassis and is the first 15-inch diagonal gaming laptop to come with an applied liquid metal compound to the thermal system called “OMEN Tempest”.

The company also launched a new lineup of OMEN and HP Pavilion gaming devices in India to raise the bar for gaming experiences.

HP OMEN 15 Laptop is available now from a starting price of Rs 124,990 while HP Pavilion Gaming 15 Laptop is available from a starting price of Rs 70,990. Gaming Mouse would cost another Rs 1,799.

The OMEN laptops have up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 featuring Max-Q7 design, up to the latest 9th Gen Intel Core i9 high performance mobile processor, powered by up to 5.0 GHz Turbo, eight cores and 16 threads and up to 16 GB RAM.

The new Intel Wi-Fi 6 designed to support gigabit speeds up the wireless game with up to 3X faster file transfer speeds than Wi-Fi 5.

We are pushing the paradigms of gaming innovations through disruptive new devices like OMEN X 2S, that provide unmatched experiences to the gamers and help them reach the next level,” said Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP Inc. India.

Amazon on Tuesday announced that developers can now start building Alexa skills for customers in India with the new Hindi voice model available in Alexa Skills Kit (ASK).

Developers would get a headstart and submit skills for certification as the company prepare to offer engaging experiences for Alexa users in one of the most spoken languages in the country, the company said in a statement.

Commercial hardware manufacturers who want to develop Alexa Built-in products for Hindi-speaking customers in India can request early access to the invite-only Alexa Voice Service (AVS) developer preview.

The Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) is a collection of free, self-service APIs and tools that make it fast and easy for developers to create skills, or capabilities, for Alexa.

Amazon last year launched a new category of skill called “Cleo” that enables customers in India help Alexa learn Hindi and other languages. The idea was to improve Alexa’s language model and help her gradually speak in local languages.

Apart from Hindi, users can respond to Alexa’s English statements in Tamil, Marathi, Kannada, Bengali, Telugu, Gujarati and other regional languages.

Alexa is currently available in over 80 countries and speaks more than 14 language variants.

One can sign up for the first webinar on Hindi skill building scheduled on July 24. Developers in India who have their Hindi-language skill certified for publication in India before July 31 would receive exclusive early bird Alexa merchandise.
