HP releases its eStation printer, a product that may were too some distance in building to cancel when they purchased the Palm OS.
This unusual new HP (HPQ) Photosmart eStation Printer is a bunch of things in a single. it is an 7-inch Android tablet with a lot of diverse wireless imaging capabilities. The ta let docks in and controls a printer/scanner/copier which is wirelessly connected to the pill and the cyber web. apparently, one characteristic enables it to handle Apple’s (AAPL) iOS AirPrint and print straight from iOS 4.2 contraptions just like the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
specializing in the tablet aspect, the gadget is usually considered one of HP’s final that runs Google’s (GOOG) Android. That’s no longer to assert a lot of work hasn’t been executed on Android during this product. within the video under, you could see that HP has managed to position in lots of unique printing performance in the OS.
but HP/Palm is already gearing up developers for HP drugs and printers that can be running PalmOS. the following be aware become handed to Palm developers asserting that HP changed into constructing iPad-sized pill hardware that should still be hitting the highway by way of early 2011.
Now that we're officially part of HP, we're going full velocity ahead with their purposes initiative. Their proprietary operating equipment, webOS, is now the OS that may be used in HP’s cell gadgets. This includes cell handsets in addition to tablet-style devices corresponding to the iPad. they are able to therefore leverage Palm’s capacity to innovate and the scale of HP’s great install base and distribution community up to now unavailable to us.
workplace Depot is the only location I may locate presently promoting the gadget for $four hundred. That’s a pretty solid deal in case you believe that seven inch, name company Android tablets are prone to be promoting for greater than $four hundred on my own.
So what does it imply for this extraordinary gadget? Is the low expense an illustration of a brief lifespan?
HP could abandon the Android-primarily based product as a one-off anomaly. (HP has a pretty good list of maintaining with product warranties although.) It could also proceed to improve it with the Android platform as a hedge towards its webOS approach going ahead. It may also unload the Android unit to a competitor like Dell (DELL), Samsung or Canon who are looking to use Android of their printers.
HP could additionally ‘improve’ the device to a webOS application base at some element sooner or later. there is nothing in this ARM powered pill that received’t run WebOS. HP has made no secret of the fact that it plans to make use of the webOS in its sensible printer lineup going forward.
in spite of everything, this device is likely to be one of the ultimate of its type — a quickly to be extinct, ‘duck-billed platypus’ of tablet-printers from HP.
here’s what’s prone to be a rare sighting:
