Although many experts were sure that HP was going to give up both Android and Windows 7 in favor of webOS on its future tablets, there will be at least one slate running Google’s mobile OS made by the US company. A recent FCC filing shows that HP is ready to launch an e-Reader based on Android and able to interface with the company’s Zeus printer.
Engadget’s sources say that this will be a tablet/e-reader focused on e-reader features and integrating the B&N bookstore. Its specs include a capacitive touchscreen, HP’s custom UI, Android 2.1, an SD card slot and a front facing webcam. We’ll see unique widgets and other specific HP features on this device, specially in the UI section.
Zeen will be available in two versions: a standalone product and bundle with a compatible printer, that goes for $399.99.
