HP Slate 6 Voice Tab listed at the Bluetooth SIG. Is it a new Android phablet?
A Bluetooth SIG listing from earlier today informs us that the HP Slate 6 Voice Tab is - unsurprisingly - a “voice tablet.” However, with a display measuring only 6 inches, the device should be considered a phabelt rather than a tablet. That is, of course, if it supports phone capabilities (but the “voice” part in its name suggests it does).
It’s not 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 720 x 1280 pixels display, and a quad-core 1GHz Marvell processor.
We don’t know when to expect HP to officially unveil the Slate 6 Voice Tab, but the Bluetooth SIG certification from today might mean that it's going to happen sooner rather than later. Of course, it may as well not happen at all.
The release of new low-cost Android tablets (or phablets) would be in line with HP's latest Android efforts: the company launched its Slate 7 Plus and Slate 7 Extreme in late 2013 for only $149 and $199, respectively.
