This Week's Pick:
HP Photosmart eStation e-All-in-One Printer - C510a
A Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer with a 7" Android Tablet
The HP Photosmart eStation c510a is not the least expensive inkjet all-in-one you can find. In fact, it may be one of the more expensive printers you'll come across. Yet, it is a printer in a league of its own. Opulence almost seems like an understatement when describing the eStation. At first glance, one cannot help but notice the 7 inch color touch display on the left side of the printer, but that's not just a regular printer control panel.
The creative minds at HP have designed the first all-in-one printer with an Android powered tablet that docks on the face of the printer and acts as its control panel. In the emerging world of apps, eBooks, and wireless everything, there is a definite demand for a printer that can bridge the gap between the world of digital media and the slowly diminishing printed world.
HP's wireless ZEEN tablet has been designed inside and out with printing in mind. Although it does not support access to the Android Market, HP has worked to bring users a plethora of recognizable and popular applications which have been optimized for printing. Whether you want to check in for your flight and print your boarding pass, print one of Martha Stewart's recipes, check the news, check the weather, or access and print Google maps, the ZEEN does it all. The ZEEN has a fully functional internet browser, email support, and much, much more. You can even access Barnes & Nobles eBooks, eMagazines, and eNewspapers, while having the capability to send passages to your printer. The features that this tablet brings to an all-in-one printer are endless and perpetually increasing with each HP app update.
As for the printer itself, it's a top-of-the line ink-slinging machine. It has every function you would expect from an all-in-one machine and more. A standout feature worthy of mentioning is HP's ePrint mobile printing. With this technology, users can print photos and documents by emailing them directly to their printer from their smartphone, notebook, or other mobile device. Also, the eStation incorporates web-based fax
capabilities to make this a truly wireless machine of the future. With a 5 cartridge design, you replace only the specific color that runs out, and with Inksell.com compatible HP 564XL cartridges (@ $22.95 for Black and $12.95 per color cartridge) the cost of printing is only 3 cents per page* for black and 2 cents per page (per cartridge)** for color.
