HP, the PC maker has finally announced its much anticipated Slate6 VoiceTab phablet and HP Slate7 VoiceTab tablet in India, confirming earlier reports that the PC maker is looking to enter the Indian market with new devices.
The tablets which are said to be specially designed for India will head to the county next month. However, HP did not reveal the complete specifications and the pricing of the tablets in the sub-continent market.
According to the company, the HP Slat Voice tab 6 will feature 6-inch display with 1280x720p, while the Slate 7 will sport 1280x800p 7-inch IPS display. Both the tablets will use Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box operating system and will house 16GB of internal memory, which can further be expanded by upto 22 GB with microSD card. There is no word on the chipset provider, clock speed and the RAM of the devices. The tablets will come with voice calling capacity and will house high-resolution front and rear cameras. On the connectivity front, the tablet will have dual SIM capability and 3G network support.
However, it looks like HP is specifically targeting the Indian smartphone market as the company hasn't spoken about any plans for other countries.

HP is innovating for this next generation, addressing the unique needs of customers in India with voice-enabled tablets that deliver performance they can trust, and the entertainment they want," said Rajiv Srivastava, vice president & general manager, Printing and Personal Systems, HP India,NDTV quoted.
