DigiTimes claims HP will introduce a printer-bundled tablet PC in September. The site claims shipment volume is unlikely to be strong, the device is a project from in 2009 and it's mainly a tablet PC market tester for HP. The tablet has a 7" screen with 480 x 800 pixel resolution and will use an ARM-based processor from Freescale.
The device will feature a 7-inch panel, supporting a resolution of 480 by 800, an ARM-based processor from Freescale, a 512MB DRAM and 4GB of NAND flash for storage, Lin noted.

The whole project is handled by HP's printer department and is outsourced to a Taiwan-based PC maker. Because the project was planned before HP acquired Palm, the device will adopt Android, Lin explained.

The printer, which will be bundled with the device is manufactured by Wistron and will feature a dock for the connection between the device and printer.
