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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
