HP intros Slate 6 VoiceTab II, its latest tablet with phone capabilities
Less than a year after introducing the Slate 6 VoiceTab, HP this week released its successor: the Slate 6 VoiceTab II. If you’re expecting the Slate 6 VoiceTab II to be a significant upgrade over its predecessor, you’ll be disappointed.

The only differences that we can spot right now between the new tablet and the old model are related to the software version, and the rear camera. The Slate 6 VoiceTab II runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box (instead of 4.2 Jelly Bean like the original tablet), and comes with an 8 MP rear camera (instead of a 5 MP one). The rest of the features seem to have remained unchanged, including: 3G connectivity, a 6-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 2 MP front-facing camera, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Marvell PXA1088 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh Li-Po battery. The device obviously has voice-calling capabilities, and even offers support for two SIM cards.

At the moment, the Slate 6 VoiceTab II is available only in India, where it costs $259 (15,999 INR). HP didn’t say if it’s planning to release the device in other markets. Would you consider buying one?

720p on a 6 inch display? I think not.

259 and will still get royally owned by the Redmi Note 4G that goes for 161 what with the latter bears Snapdragon 400, LTE and a more manageable .5" less screen space. Seriously HP why even bother..

This is why Chinese hardware makers are unstoppable. Who would in the right state of mind choose this over some of the beauties we saw yesterday here on this site?

Ha ha ha. You can always count on HP for a good laugh. At least it gives the students in a few years a more recent example of another failed American org. By this I mean they can add the last few paragraphs on a story that started awhile ago.

Their laptops and Ultrabooks are good though, in my opinion they just need to up their game in mobile tablets etc... Everything else is doing quite well

Not enough power to justify the price. Put Snapdragon 400, 2GB RAM, 4000mAh battery and some innovative features. Otherwise, quit trying to win the market.
