HP's new Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra and Slate 8 Plus seem to be rebranded Huawei tablets
HP introduced quite many tablets until now, and it's probably not going to stop anytime soon. Some of the company’s upcoming tablets are particularly interesting, though, as they seem to be nothing more than rebranded Huawei slates (although HP has yet to officially confirm this).

Take the Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra, for example. This looks like Huawei’s MediaPad X1, has the same dimensions, and the same set of features, including: a 7-inch display with 1,200 x 1,920 pixels, LTE, a 13MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and a Huawei-made quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. Just like the MediaPad X1, the HP Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra can make voice calls, and runs Android Jelly Bean. The new tablet can be pre-ordered from HP’s official Singaporean website for $399 (499 SGD in local currency).

Another new HP tablet, called Slate 8 Plus, is likely a rebranded Huawei MediaPad M1. While there are no photos to show the Slate 8 Plus, its dimensions and features are exactly the ones of the MediaPad M1: 8-inch display with 800 x 1,280 pixels, 1GB of RAM, quad-core 1.6GHz HiSilicon CPU, and Android Jelly Bean. According to HP France, the Slate 8 Plus will cost €299 (about $400).

We're expecting both the Huawei HP Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra and Slate 8 Plus to be introduced in other markets soon.

Finally a decently specced tablet from HP. The rest of their tablets have been cheap trash...

But for $400 you can get an iPad Mini 2 or Galaxy Tab S 8.4.
