"The HP DreamScreen provides a 10- or 13-inch display with 800 x 480 resolution, 2GB of RAM, WiFi, Ethernet, and dual card readers, says HP.

"The DreamScreen 100, said to be shipping now, is equipped with a 10.2-inch screen while the 13.3-inch HP DreamScreen 130 is due later this fall. Instead of offering a Web browser for unrestricted Internet access, the DreamScreen provides widgets that deliver partner sites and services, such as Facebook, Pandora Internet radio, and the Snapfish photo site, says HP.

"Equipped with a remote control, the DreamScreen can stream photos and music from a PC, or users can copy photos, music, or video to the tablet and/or a connected storage device for local playback, according to HP. Although the device is billed as distributing PC multimedia anywhere in the house, it does not appear to run on batteries."
