Hewlett-Packard, the leading PC maker company already has a brief history of releasing Android devices in the face of two powerful tablets that hit the stage this year. According to reports, the devices will be called ‘HP Slate 6 Voice Tab” and “HP Bowser 10 x2”.
The specifications of the debut Slate 6 Voice Tab are not that appealing as it comes with a 720 display, 1 GHz quad-core Marvell processor with a quad Cortex A7 cores. It also features Vivante GC1000 GPU.
The device runs on Android 4.2 which is not the latest version of Android. The device is capable of making voice calls and thus should be called as a phablet. The other features which it comes with are a support of Bluetooth, WiFi, FM radio and LTE network connections as well.
On the other hand, the HP Browser 10 x 2 looks much more like a tablet and comes with much better features than Slate 6. It offers 1.8 GHz quad-core Tegra 4 processor with a full HD display. As far as the Android version is concerned, the HP Browser comes with Android 4.3.
Neither of the unannounced devices from HP tablets will be running the latest Android release, with the HP Browser 10 x2 running Android 4.3 and the HP Slate 6 Voice Tab having an even older Android 4.2. However the specs may change in the future.
The new Slate 6 would be a mid-range device, according to the reports and will be a fairly reasonable, attractive phablet.
