HP to start selling printer-bundled tablet in September, says Digitimes Research

Hewlett-Packard (HP) is expected to start selling a printer-bundled tablet PC in September, according to Digitimes Research senior analyst Luke Lin citing upstream component makers.

The device will feature a 7-inch panel, supporting a resolution of 480 by 800, an ARM-based processor from Freescale, a 512MB DRAM and 4GB of NAND flash for storage, Lin noted.

The whole project is handled by HP's printer department and is outsourced to a Taiwan-based PC maker. Because the project was planned before HP acquired Palm, the device will adopt Android, Lin explained.

The printer, which will be bundled with the device is manufactured by Wistron and will feature a dock for the connection between the device and printer.

Since the device is a project from in 2009, Lin believes shipment volumes are unlikely to be strong, but should be a good tablet PC market tester for HP.
