HP Photosmart eStation All-in-One to Run Android

HP has recently announced their HP Photosmart eStation All-in-One printer which features a nifty 7 inch tablet as both the screen and the control panel.  The printer is a fully functional all in one and seems to be of the quality that we have come to expect from HP.

The tablet has a few nice features such as Android 2.1, a 7 inch screen with 800 X 480 resolution, a 1 GHz Freescale i.MX 51 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of NAND flash.  The tablet is also promised to be upgraded to Android 2.2, which is nice, however there are a few shortcomings such as no market, a quirky interface seeing as its optimized for printing, and its somewhat laggy.

The price point is set at $399 which seems more than reasonable.  Is anyone interested in eventually picking this up?

    This could actually be interesting. Photo editing directly from an SD card is already nifty, and it’d be extra cool to have a bigger screen for a high-traffic family printer. Still, what’s HP doing with that Palm acquisition? I thought we’d be seeing WebOS in that position by now.

    This is hilarious considering HP bought Palm and last I heard they were going to use webOS in their printers. But they went with Android. Nice.

      I’m sure they had this product in development way before the Palm acquisition.
