A couple of weeks ago HP announced the the HP Zeen C510 7-inch Android tablet official along with the PhotoSmart eSatation C510 printer it combines with. It was last scheduled to go on sale today priced at $399 for both the tablet and printer. Android 2.1, a Freescale i.MX51 processor and a 4-6 hour battery. Sounds like a good deal. Printer aside, how does the tablet fare?
LaptopMag has gotten their hands on it and it doesn’t sound that appealing. It’s thicker than most tablets and the Android OS on board is locked down – you can only use the apps HP has preloaded, all of them being apps with something you can print. Attached to the printer, the tablet becomes a digital photo frame.
