hp-slate-7-voicetabIn addition to the Slate 6 VoiceTab, HP also launched the bigger Slate 7 VoiceTab. As the name suggests, it is a 7-inch tablet that can also make voice calls over cellular network with a price tag of Rs 16,990. The tablet will be available from next week onwards.

Talking of specifications, the tablet flaunts a 7-inch (1280×800 pixels) display with a pixel density of 216ppi and in terms of power; it has a 1.2GHz Marvell PXA1088 quad-core processor  inside paired with 1GB of RAM. On the photography front, the Slate 7 VoiceTab features the same combination of 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel secondary camera at the front as the Slate 6 VoiceTab.

Other features include 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card and a 4,100mAh battery. Connectivity options too are quite similar to the Slate 6 VoiceTab with dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and as far as the OS is concerned, it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

At this price point, the Slate 7 VoiceTab will be up against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, which is priced at Rs 16,832. Though priced close to each other, the Galaxy Tab 3 lags behind with a dual-core processor, a 7-inch display but at a lower resolution, lower resolution cameras (3-megapixel/1.3-megapixel), single-SIM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Another device it would compete with is the Lenovo Idea Tab A3000, which is cheaper with a price tag of Rs 13,899. Compared to HP’s tablet, the Idea Tab has similar specs, but lags behind in terms of a lower resolution display and camera at the front.
