HP Zeen Slate, powered by Android

“‘HP is going to release a tablet soon, the ‘eStation Zeen’”, which was evident from FCC document files recently. The tablet is believed to work on the Android platform and can take print outs of eBooks and documents directly from the tablet device on to the HP printer.

HP Slate Zeen

The only information that was given by FCC documents about eStation Zeen is that the device is a tablet that will be having Wi-Fi connectivity and HP logo on it. No other information about the eStation Zeen was specified in the document. But some other information about the device came out as a rumour.

Snippet information: The eStation (will not run on Windows OS or WebOS from Palm, which was recently acquired by them) will work on the Android 2.1. Actually, the eStation alone is not the only tablet that HP is having ready.  But, this android running eStation will be accompanied by its companions in the upcoming months, Windows 7 running tablets termed as HP Slate and WebOS running tablets termed as PalmPad (rumoured). The rumour about Zeen is that it works only on Android 2.1 and may be upgraded to the latest Android 2.2 Froyo version even before its launch.

The eStation Zeen’s main intention is to function as an e-reader and it has now made a partnership with the eBook store Barnes & Noble Nook. Based on the information from Engadget’s spy was that, the tablet will also have a Camera and MicroSD slot.

The main functionality (which is not present in the iPad) of this Zeen is the facility to transfer files to the HP printer (in particular, HP Zeus Printer) directly. The combo of the HP Zeus Printer and the Zeen may be available for 399 $. The Zeen will be capable to work with the Zeus (not sure if it is wired or wireless) and will behave as a strong interface for the Printer, which was clued by many HP executives long before.

The engadget stated that, “that is all we have got and due to a secrecy request, we cannot reveal other major information from the FCC filing on HP, for the time being”. This leaves us wondering about the other capabilities of the eStation Zeen and the cost in which the tablet will be available without the printer.

This Tablet, which is capable of sending files or ebooks for printing to a printer directly was expected from the HP and is sure to open new doors for you. But, the ability of the Zeen to send huge sized ebooks to the printer for taking print outs is still a mystery. Also, I can’t understand the need for taking large volume of print out copies and wasting of time or money, when you already have the e-reader on your hand (else buy the printed book directly from the shop).

There are several talks and unverified news on release of Samsung Tab, the Dell Streaks, the PalmPad and RIM’s Blackpad, which makes the e-reader market a place for serious competition.
