Well, this is quite a surprise, but HP has just taken the wraps off the Slate 6 and the Slate 7 Voice Tab just a while ago, thus putting a rest to all the speculations. The two tablets run on Android 4.2 as expected and feature cellular connectivity for voice and data connectivity (3G). The design of the tablet is pretty neat and it features front facing stereo speakers similar to the HTC One, which is a decent feature for a budget device. The two phablets will be launched in India initially with more markets to follow soon. Pricing is expected to be $200 for the smaller 6 inch Voice Tab and $250 for the 7 inch variant.
In addition to featuring 720p displays, the phablets will also feature 16GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot for extra space. The press images also reveal cameras on the two phablets with the Slate 6 seemingly sporting a slightly larger camera sensor and a flash while the Slate 7 doesn’t have flash on board. The two phablets sport a 1 GHz quad core Marvell chipset which isn’t a performance beast, but not too bad either for the price range. The images show off the Slate 6 in a Black Gold variant which gives it a premium look. We are hoping these phablets eventually make their way to other parts of the world as well, including the U.S. Maybe we’ll get to learn more during the MWC event next month.
