HP's Zeen Tablet Gains Android 2.2

The HP Slate remains somewhat of a mystery; while it was briefly introduced at CES awhile back, HP changed their tone afterwards and noted that it would be more of a business tablet than anything else. Interestingly, there's yet another HP tablet on the market today, but it's one that most people don't even consider: the HP Zeen.

The reason being is that the Zeen ships as part of a printer package from the company, with the Zeen being the most exciting part of the Photosmart eStation. Not that printing pamphlets isn't exciting, but we're guessing a tablet is just a little more enthralling. That debate aside, the Zeen just gained a lot of functionality today with the addition of Android 2.2. Upon shipping, the tablet was stuck with Android 2.1, but not, reports are coming in that a beta version of Froyo is now available to end-users.


That means that the Zeen can now play back Flash content, and it's also speeding things up. If you've got a Zeen, your weekend just got a lot better. Enjoy it!

Lol well better late than never I guess. Froyo on a slate/tablet seems to be kind of a let down to me though, where Gingerbread or HC would be nice. Then on to that printer thing I use a Canon Photo printer which prints photo shop quality pictures good enough to frame on photo stock paper. The ink on it is also cheaper than HP ink especially if you buy off market and Canon knows a bit more about photo's than HP anyway really.

Canon certainly does know more about photos then HP. This is a perfect reason why Canon printers are more likely to be found in a professional photographers office while HP targets the consumer level audience much more.

you are right omegadraco, most of hp's stuff is geared toward printing simple pictures at home and just regular printing. Though 2.2 on the hp print tab is pretty cool.
