It looks like HP isn’t interested in using the “phablet” name for their latest devices set for launch in India. They have announced the HP Slate6 VoiceTab and the HP Slate7 VoiceTab, a pair of tablet-esque devices that have the capability to make phone calls.
HP didn’t drop much info on these two over-sized telephones just yet, but we do know that they’ll have quad-core processors. We also know that they’ll be competitively priced for folks not looking to spend a fortune for their next smartphone / tablet / whatever these things want to be.
We see a need in India that we can meet,” Said VP of consumer devices Ron Coughlin. “Consumers are looking for a way to consolidate devices. We think there’s an opportunity to enter a growing market where there’s an unmet need.”
The 6-inch device is said to come in at around $250, while the 7-incher will be $200. It’s odd that the bigger device will be cheaper, but we certainly aren’t complaining. We’ll be looking for more details from HP, but in the meantime let us know if you’d get down with these devices by dropping a comment down below.
