HP Slate6 and Slate7 want to turn phablets into VoiceTabs

HP is planning to make its voice heard in the mobile game with the new HP Slate6 VoiceTab and HP Slate7 VoiceTab.

When is a phablet not a phablet? When it's a VoiceTab! HP is planning to make its voice heard in the mobile game with the new HP Slate6 VoiceTab and HP Slate7 VoiceTab.

The Slate6 has a 6-inch screen, while the Slate7 -- you guessed it -- is a 7-inch tablet. The Slate6 boasts a 720p screen, and the two VoiceTabs feature quad-core processors and high definition cameras.

Combining phone and tablet, they take on the likes of the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the 7-inch Asus Fonepad .

HP has been pretty quiet even after vowing a return to smart phones last summer, although it does make tablets like the HP Slate 7 Android tablet , the Windows 8 laptop-cum-tablet HP Envy x2 , and the humungous 20-inch HP Rove 20 .

HP says the pair of VoiceTabs will be on sale in India in February. I've contacted HP to find out if they're coming here. They're dual-SIM devices though, so chances are they won't in this form as dual-SIM isn't a very popular idea in Blighty. 

Can HP take on its Android rivals? Voice your concerns in the comments or on our Facebook page.
