When it comes to retail technology i.e. point-of-sales (POS) systems like registers and self-checkout machines rarely is there anything exciting to talk about. Step in HP who today is announcing its HP ElitePOS G1 – a glorified Windows 10 (or Windows 10 IoT) PC that runs the latest Intel Core processors and will be showing up in your local mall soon.
Just going by the name – ElitePOS – HP is bringing its premium business line of Elite products like its EliteBook laptops to retail. The move is not just about building a nice-looking POS system, however, but about HP’s long-standing history in security to protect consumer data during checkouts.
