HP’s Zeen C510 Android tablet
HP acquired Palm for $1.2 billion and all the good stuff that goes with that, and yet they still appear to have their eyes set firmly on an Android tablet. The HP Zeen C510 was apparently spotted in China with a fully customized version of the Android OS, that oddly allows no customization for the user (or so we’ve been led to believe). The new UI that HP have developed is called TouchSmart. Sure, it comes bundled with a few things like YouTube, Facebook and a Barnes & Noble recommendation widget, but the lack of control over the home-screen is something of a shock.
HP ship 1 million printers per week so its not surprising that this tablet comes with build in printing functionality for the PhotoSmart eStation c510 Printer. We do not have any word on whether you will be able to print to other types of printers yet. Indeed, the word out there is that HP plan to bundle this tablet with a printer for $399.99 … of course, none of this is confirmed.
