HP to Sell "Voice Tablets" in India

hp_slate6HP will be selling two "voice tablets," (others might call them phablets), featuring a six-inch Slate 6 and seven-inch Slate 7 "VoiceTab."

IDC reports that phones with screen sizes ranging from five to seven inches grew 17 times in the second quarter of 2013, year over year.

In the third quarter of 2013, IDC said phablets accounted for 23 percent of the overall market for phones.

Some of us might note that such purchasing patterns suggest the decades long effort to create $100 PCs for developing nations has been eclipsed by commercial offerings that serve the same purpose.
