    You can buy this printer right now. IIRC the tablet has a basic version of android on it.

    I have one of those touchsmart printers and the zeen (the tablet thing) runs android. I bought it a while ago so, unless they changed it (which would have had an announcement), it's probably the same thing.

    and the zeen is junky - a pointless tablet with horrible reaction to the touch

    I wasn't impressed with them either and wow those Android tablets were heavy. Actually, packaging a 7" TouchPad with a highend Touchsmart printer is a fantastic idea and hopefully HP is thinking this way.

    Can you imagine how many people would love and buy a smaller webOS tablet if it came with their $400 or $500 printer. People already pay $300 for these printers and the addition of webOS would be a clear BONUS!

    I'd buy one in a heartbeat and is the direction all highend HP printers should be heading. Sorli...

    Junky is putting it mildly ... It's seriously one of the biggest piles of crap I've ever used ...

    Guys, both of your ideas are great, and even better when combined:
    7" TouchPad bundled with all-in-one printer, with the printer dock acting as a Touchstone charger, all at a nice discount.

    Here is another thought: Printers also often have all types of card readers built in. Stick in a card while TouchPad is docked and have it copied to TouchPad via BlueTooth -and/or- uploaded to one of the photo accounts that are part of Synergy (e.g., snapfish, photobucket, facebook), using the tablet as the interface to pick which service to use, and which photos to upload.

    I never thought I would be excited about a printer again!

    HP should make a flat touchscreen monitor that runs WebOS natively, and just draws each display input signal to a card. They should make a Asus transformer style laptop that includes Win7 running on "laptop" portion, and WebOS on the removable tablet display. Use cloud services to sync data between Win7 and WebOS lands. They should also hire me
