HP announces VoiceTab, targets the budget-conscious

HP now offers two new consumer tablets in the forms of the Slate 6 VoiceTab and Slate 7 VoiceTab. Both are running on quad-core processors, 1GB RAM, have dual-SIM capabilities, and are positioned as entry-level phablets.

HP EDITED

Slate 6 VoiceTab specs:

6-inch IPS display @ 1280 x 720 pixels
5MP rear, 2MP front camera
1.2GHz Marvell PXA1088 quad-core processor
1GB RAM
16GB ROM, expandable to 32GB
3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS
Android 4.2.2
dual-SIM support
3000mAh Li-Polymer battery
HP DataPass service

Slate 7 VoiceTab specs:

7-inch IPS display @ 1280 x 800 pixels
5MP rear, 2MP front camera
1.2GHz Marvell PXA1088 quad-core processor
1GB RAM
16GB ROM, expandable to 32GB
3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS
Android 4.2.2
dual-SIM support
4100mAh Li-Polymer battery
HP DataPass service

The HP DataPass service present in both devices gives users 250MB of free 3G data service per month for two years. It’s basically just a backup connection when Wi-Fi and other connections aren’t available.

As you can see, both the Slate 6 and Slate 7 phablets don’t really offer the consumers new and ground-breaking specs to get the attention of the people. Instead, the company positioned the new devices to have attractive price-points considering these are quad-core phablets. The 6-inch variant retails at €229 (approx. Php14,019), while the 7-inch model is at €249 (approx. Php15,244).

Available in Snow White, Neon Purple, Marine Blue, Neon Pink, and Grass Green, they are expected to arrive first in Europe and other Middle Eastern countries in May so don’t expect that we will be seeing them until after that.
