Slate6 VoiceTab and HP Slate7 VoiceTab due in February

HP is back in the smartphone game, yet not in the capacity you might envision. Today sees the company introducing the Slate 6 and Slate 7 “Voice Tablets” for the Indian market. Featuring 6-inch and 7-inch display sizes, the two are considered “more than a tablet, smarter than a phone” by HP.

Powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the duo feature quad-core processors, 3G Dual SIM Dual Standby, front-facing stereo speakers, and a pair of cameras. The resolution for the Slate 6 VoiceTab is 1280 x 720 while the Slate 7 VoiceTab gets a 1280 x 800 picture. Not all that high, no, but it should keep the cost down. Reportedly, these should fall somewhere around $200-$250 without subsidy when they arrive next month.

“Consumers are looking to consolidate their phones and tablets, which is propelling the voice tablet market…This is an exciting new category that represents a meaningful growth opportunity for HP. Our HP Slate VoiceTab provides consumers with a high-quality product at a great value.”
