We believe that the HP Slate 6 VoiceTab will be positioned as a smartphone, rather than a regular tablet device. The Android-powered device will be made available starting today, but in the meantime, check out our initial impressions of HP's latest Slate 6 VoiceTab.

HP Slate 6 VoiceTab: Design, Dimensions and Display

On the surface, the HP Slate 6 VoiceTab shares quite a lot similarity with BlackBerry Z10 and HTC One Max. Though, HP tried to fuse its own design elements, in order to differentiate it product from so-called ‘large screen' phablets. The device has rounded corners, which shows off an impression of balanced look. The dual-frontal speakers given on the front side are decent enough to watch a full-length movies on the go.

The phone is completely made of polycarbonate plastic, which is not a bad idea. However, we would've expected something extraordinary, after all its HP's biggest possible product till date.

The biggest possible reason, why anyone would like to buy HP's Slate 6 VoiceTab, is certainly because of a removable back-cover and dual-SIM support. Indian consumers have a soft corner for dual-SIM connectivity. The 3G voice-calling enabled device supports dual-SIM (supports regular SIM plus microSIM). Well, the battle is already won it seems.

HP has done a brilliant job, when it comes to using a 6-inch IPS LCD (1280 X 720) panel, instead of regular 5-inch screen. The display is sharp enough to read texts, though; we were not able to test outdoor screen visibility in direct sunlight.

Despite having a huge display, the phone measures less than 9mm and weighs roughly around 160grams. We even compared the handset with a regular pencil, so as to get a fair idea about its thickness.
