HP launches inkjet printer with integrated 7in Android tablet

HP PhotoSmart eStation All-in-One inkjet printer has detachable 7in tablet

HP will release a multifunction inkjet printer that uses a detachable 7in, iPad-style touchscreen tablet device as its interface. The HP PhotoSmart eStation All-in-One has all the features of HP's ePrint service — such as remote printing via e-mail — in addition to the removable tablet.

It is a surprise development from HP, which has been developing an iPad rival called Slate. The HP Slate was originally set to be released with Windows 7, until reports emerged that HP found the operating system too slow and was considering WebOS. The HP PhotoSmart eStation All-in-One's tablet allows users to browse the Web, as well as run HP's suite of ePrint applications.

HP designer Ryan Wilday told PC World that the detachable tablet — which will be called the eStation Zeen in Australia — runs a version of the Android operating system. The tablet will not be sold separately from the printer. The HP PhotoSmart eStation All-in-One will go on sale at the start of November — initially exclusively through Harvey Norman — and will be priced at $699.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
