From a glance the HP Slate 7 Voicetab looks metallic. It is actually plastic, and has a good feel to it. The HP Slate 7 Voicetab is light and reasonably compact for a 7-inch tablet. It doesn’t have as much blank space above and below the screen, even though it has stereo front-facing speakers. It is also significantly – HP has managed to craft a classy-looking tablet.
The tablet has a removable backplate, which hides a microSD slot and dual SIM slots – one micro and one full-size. These SIM slots let the HP Slate 7 Voicetab act like a big phone.

Less than one year ago, 14-year-old Taj Pabari was like any other kid, toiling away on a 3D printer at school (ok, maybe not quite like any other kid). An assignment required the class to sandwich two pieces of plastic together, but where some students simply saw air, Pabari envisioned the makings of a new kind of educational toy.
