The new all-in-one printer called the HP Photosmart eStation comes with a detachable touchscreen tablet that lets you access a variety of printer-based apps which lets you manage printing along with other office tasks.
Not just printing but users can access the Barnes and Noble eBookstore with the tablet making it into a eReader. It also comes with the ability to print a hard copy of the ebook if desired.
