According to some sources, the H variant cannot make voice calls, instead it supports Wi-Fi and data (2g/3g) hence the sim slot.

As stated by one user on XDA forums:

This tablets comes in 3 ROM variants; the F, H and HV.

Lenovo H variants are made with the same hardware as their HV variants but a different ROM. H's have 3g data & wifi but not voice calling, HV's have 3d data & wifi & voice calling.

Some users have found a workaround to enable voice calling using some unofficial means:

With most a Lenovo's recent tablets, if you have the 'H' model (3G data only), you can load the firmware for the 'HV' model (3G data with calling) and it will work.
