Phone? Tablet? No, they're both
HP was on hand at Mobile World Congress today in Barcelona to show off its new Android smartphones, the Slate Voicetabs. We got a look at both the 6-inch and 7-inch versions that are most definitely part tablet, part smartphone. Both have earpieces, large displays and make phone calls.
Neither are particularly groundbreaking. The Slate 7 has a 1200x800 resolution display while the Slate 6 has a slightly better 720p panel. Both contain 1.2GHz quad-core CPU's, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. HP says KitKat will be pushed out to both, but didn't say how soon.
So they're definitely not top-tier devices, but from a visual perspective they don't look all that bad. The software is basically completely untouched Android with a couple of HP apps, and there is a pretty bold choice of colors for the rear including a vivid pink or lime green option.
