A new HP tablet with voice calling is now available in India, via an online retailer. Called the HP 10 Tablet, the device has not yet been announced officially, and nor is it visible on the company’s own listings globally. It has been priced between Rs. 19,990 and Rs. 23,000 across various online retailers.
The HP 10 Tablet according to its online retailer listing, runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and features a 10-inch display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor, coupled with 1GB of DDR3 RAM. Featuring voice calling, the HP 10 Tablet bears a single-SIM card slot (GSM), of regular size.
Other features of the HP 10 Tablet, gleaned from its Flipkart listing, include 8GB of built-in storage, and microSD card storage expandability up to 32GB. It bears a 2-megapixel rear camera, and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting. Notably, eBay India has also listed the device at a price for Rs. 23,000, while ezyby.com has it listed for Rs. 19,990.
Apart from 3G (21Mbps HSDPA+) connectivity via the SIM-card slot, the HP 10 Tablet is listed to feature Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro HDMI, Micro-USB, a 3.5mm jack, and Bluetooth HS v.30. The HP 10 Tablet runs on a 4600mAh battery, rated to deliver up to 5 hours of continuous video playback.
The HP 10 Tablet measures 263x173x10.9 mm, and weighs in at 632 grams. The tablet features access to Google services, including the Google Play store. Also touted by the listing is the HP ePrint service, apart from the tablet’s built-in stereo speakers.
Notably, earlier in January, HP announced two new voice-calling tablets for the Indian market, the HP Slate6 VoiceTab and HP Slate7 VoiceTab. The company however, did not reveal the pricing for both devices, but notes that the HP Slate6 VoiceTab and HP Slate7 VoiceTab should be available in India in February.
