HP to sell $400 printer/Android tablet

Engadget are reporting on a new printer that will ship with a control panel based on a 7" Android tablet. The Photosmart eStation C510 is listed for $399.99 and according to the product page, with the tablet you can "browse the latest e-book bestsellers or old favorites."

Everyone's jumping to the conclusion that this will have the Nook app, which would make some sense. After all, HP already have a rebranded Nook desktop app.

But I have the feeling that we might see the Kobo app instead. Kobo have been working really hard at getting their app bundled on various devices. Adding this printer would be right up their alley.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
