HP Release Pricing for an Android Tablet and Printer Combo

September 20, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

HP has decided to throw a kink into the Android Tablet market today with the announced pricing of a printer that comes with a 7 inch detachable tablet.  HP’s eStation printer and tablet will be priced at $399 when it hits the shelves.  That price is awesome because not only are you getting a tablet but you also get a compatible printer.  With that kind of pricing for the two you can bet that this will be huge competition to the tablets already set for release like the Samsung Galaxy Tab.  So here is what we know so far concerning this dynamic duo:

Android 2.1 will be stock but will be upgraded to 2.2 in the future

Wi-Fi only

Tablet portion of the duo will have a battery life of 4 to 6 hours

Tablet will be connected to Barnes & Noble eBook store

Yahoo skinned but Gmail will be accessible through browser

NO Android Market

Bundle will include tablet, printer and ink

Will be released for the holidays

Despite the unit pictured above and the video below, this is still a prototype but I can only imagine that will generate a nice buzz this holiday season.  Hopefully we will start to see more of this bundle in action in the upcoming weeks and months.  Be sure to check here for more details as they become available.
