Engadget received details about HP's Photosmart eStation C510, an upcoming inkjet printer that features a detachable Android tablet. Unfortunately, the device will not have the Gmail app nor Android Market, it is primarily intended as a device for e-reading. The product is expected to ship later this month for $399.99, although the site heard that the launch date may be pushed back due to some bugs that still need to be sorted out.
We saw it this weekend for a fleeting moment, but thankfully one handy reader sent us copies of the product page for HP's Photosmart eStation C510, which we can now confirm is the Zeus / Zeen printer and detachable tablet combination we caught wind of back in early August -- and we've got some more details. Bad news first: as of a month ago, the Gmail app was missing and there was no support for Android Market, meaning the Zeen might not be an official "with Google" Android tablet like the Samsung Galaxy Tab. (The product page conspicuously lacks any mention of the OS, so we're thinking Android might simply be the hidden-away base layer for the TouchSmart UI, making this thing super boring.) It does have the default Android browser and at least some custom apps for printing pictures from Facebook, Yahoo, and Snapfish preloaded, but we don't know about anything else.
