HP’s less expensive voice calling tablet, the Slate 7 VoiceTab, has finally gone on sale in India. The device went official last month along with the costlier, yet smaller and more attractive Slate 6 that’s already up for grabs for Rs 22,990.
Both tablets share similar specifications. The design and screen size as well as resolution are the main differences you’ll notice. The HP Slate 7 VoiceTab falls in the 7-inch segment as the name suggests and it offers 1280 x 800p HD visuals through an IPS panel. While the 6-inch model has a textured design, this one dons a clean look. Also, it looks a lot like the Tegra Note from Nvidia thanks to the dual front-facing stereo speakers.
The HP Slate 7 VoiceTab is runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and there’s no concrete word on whether it will be updated to the latest OS release. On the inside, a 1.2GHz quad core Marvell PXA1088 processor based on the Cortex A7 design does the heavy lifting, while a 4100mAh gets things up and running. The tablet comes with dual SIM card slots and it supports 3G networks. Apart from this, there’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and various pre-loaded applications from the company such as Connected Music, e-Print, Connected Photo and File Manager.
