HP Malaysia today has introduced its new Slate 6 VoiceTab. Priced at RM999, the Android phablet comes with a 6″ 720p HD display and support for Dual-SIM cards. Powering the device is a Quad-Core 1.2GHz Marvell PXA1088 processor mated to 1GB of RAM and it comes with 16GB of on-board storage. The removable shimmering back cover gives access to a microSD expansion slot, 3,000mAh capacity battery and SIM card slots that consists of 1 normal SIM for 2G and 1 micro SIM slot that supports 3G.
For taking pictures, the Slate 6 VoiceTab gets a 5MP main and front facing 2MP camera. Complimenting the 6″ 1280×800 display is a dual front facing stereo speakers that offers a better gaming and video playback experience. In the hands, it feels quite solid and the matte textured back gives it a decent appearance and feel. At 8.98 mm thickness and weighing 160g, HP says that their Slate 6 VoiceTab is one of the thinnest and lightest 6″ device.
While the power button on the right side makes it reachable for single handed use, oddly the microUSB charging port is placed at the top together with its headphone jack. Out of the box, the software interface feels rather fluid and it runs on a plain vanilla Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The Slate 6 VoiceTab is now available via HP’s Online Store. Every purchase also comes with a free screen protector and a carry case. Stay tuned for our hands-on experience.
