HP Slate 7 Voicetab – Design and Features

711201411734PM_635_hp_slate_7_voicetab_ultra

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. A 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM powers the Slate 7 Voicetab and it seems fast enough to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smoothly. Apps open quickly and there are no obvious lag when scrolling through homepages or menus.
