Hewlett Packard (HP) delivers mega ‘voice tablets’ in India

HP today declared a new line of “voice tablets” with 6-inch and 7-inch display screens in India. The firm plans to introduce these devices in coming February. 

These devices will be marking HP's return to the smartphone market after it slashed out the customer device world in 2011. The Company then bounced back into the tablet market, but  chief executive Meg Whitman had stated earlier in october 2012 that the company was taking its time on phone segment.

The new devices Slate6 VoiceTab and Slate7 Voice Tab are capable of displaying high-definition videos, take High Definition pictures with front- and rear-facing cameras and have front-facing speakers.

The major accent of this annoucement is the interest that manufacturers have shown in making phone-tablet hybrids to appeal the consumers. 

Ron Coughlin the senior vice president of Consumer Personal Systems Group for HP said that, “Consumers are looking to consolidate their phones and tablets, which is propelling the voice tablet market."

These phone-tablet hybrids, often referred as "Phablets", are rapidly gaining ground as people use their phones more for watching video and surfing the Web than making calls.
