Rumor: HP Zeen Tablet/Printer Due in September

by Reads (3,517)

More details of the HP Zeen have leaked, once again by the perpetual rumor starters at the DigitTimes. So the usual disclaimer on accuracy and reliability apply.

According to the DigiTimes, the Zeen printer/tablet computer bundle will ship at the end of September with specs on the low end, including a seven-inch screen with an 800 x 400 resolution as well as 4GB of storage. Digitimes Research Senior Analyst Luke Lin noted that the Zeen will feature an ARM-based processor from Freescale and 512MB RAM.

The printer included in the bundle will be manufactured by Wistron, and will be called the Zeus.  It includes a dock to connect the tablet and printer, as well as a rumored price tag of $399.

The DigiTimes also claims the tablet will run the Google Android OS, most likely because the project was originally conceived in 2009, before HP acquired Palm. The project was already outsourced to an unnamed Taiwan based supplier, and HP found it too difficult to reverse course and design both the printer and tablet for webOS in time for launch.
