HP has launched 2 new tablets back in July this year, Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra and Slate 8 Plus. The former one is a rather capable device, it’s sporting Huawei’s HiSilicon Balong V9R1 quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. 13-megapixel camera and a 1080p display are also a part of this package and the device comes with Android 4.2 pre-installed. The latter one is a mid-range offering, it’s sporting the same HiSilicon processor as VoiceTab Ultra, though it has only 1GB of RAM and a 720p display along with a 5-megapixel camera. Both of these are rather solid tablets and cameras aren’t that important when it comes to tablets.
This company has just launched yet another tablet, this time in India. HP 7 VoiceTab (it’s easy to get lost in all these names) is another addition to HP’s VoiceTab line. This device comes with a 6.95-inch 1024 x 600 display along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD card up to 32GB). The device is powered by MediaTek’s MT8382 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz and it comes with Mali 400 MP2 GPU. At the back of this device, you can find a 5-megapixel main camera which is flanked by a LED flash while there’s a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front-facing shooter included as well. This tablet is 10.15mm thick and it weighs 305 grams. Android 4.4 KitKat comes out of the box and the device is shipped with a 3000mAh battery. This is a 3G device, so you can stick your SIM card in there and use it as a phone if you’d like. Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and USB OTG are also included. The device also has a dual speakers on the back.
HP 7 VoiceTab is available from the Official HP Online Store and retailers all across India. The device comes in white color only and it is priced at Rs 10990. I guess there are better offerings at this price point, but this device seems alright. Your thoughts?
