HP To Bring A Couple Of Android Tablets To India

Hewlett Packard (HP) is apparently going to create a couple of tablets available on the Indian market some time soon, as indicated by a local retailer. The two devices have very different taracquire groups but both run the outdated Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, though HP's website states a KitKat update is available.

The fist device is the Hewlett Packard (HP) Slate 7 Voicetab Ultra, and that name reveals a lot about the tablet. Bordering on the unacceptable, the 7-inch tablet could be used as a phone, albeit a very large one - it has an earpiece and all. Screen resolution is 1,200 x 1,900 pixels.

Computing power comes courtesy of a HiSilicon (read Huawei) chipset, and although it's not explicitly stated, the 1.6Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core processor and Mali-450 GPU point to the Kirin 910. 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of storage are on board, and a microSD slot provides expansion options. A 13MP/5MP capturing camera combo is there to hold care of capturing memories, and battery power is 5,000mAh.

The other tablet is the Hewlett Packard (HP) Slate 8 Plus, which is a bit lower-specced. The 8-inch display comes with the rather low 800 x 1,200 pixel resolution, same chipset and storage, but only a single gig of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and a 5MP/1MP capturing camera pair. The battery on the Slate 8Plus is rated at 4,800mAh.

Both devices come with a microSIM slot and support quad band 2G/3G and a host of LTE bands, as well as 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and Bluuetooth v4.0, so connectivity should be a non-issue.

The retailer quotes prices at INR 29,990 ($470) and INR 22,990 ($360) for the Slate 7 Voicetab Ultra and Slate 8 Plus, respectively. The tablets are yet to appear on HP's Indian website though.
