Want E-Mail With That Printer? HP Unveils Cloud-Enabled Printers For Handhelds

By  Mike Cole — June 08, 2010

 During an announcement at Internet Week in New York on June 7, 2010, technology giant Hewlett-Packard officially introduced four Photosmart all-in-one printers designed for handheld devices.
The printers will include Web access, touch screens and even individual e-mail addresses.

The new printers will range in price from $99 to about $400; the e-mail address for each printer is intended to provide an easy way to send print jobs to the Web-enabled printers.

The printers will enable users to send files from computers and mobile phones to the printers or store those print jobs in the cloud for later printing.

"We are once again revolutionizing printing to make web-empowered, cloud-enabled printing the new industry standard," Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP, commented at Internet Week . "We know that our customers want an easy way to print their content, anywhere, anytime. We're making that a reality today by giving people the power to print from any web-connected device - smartphones, iPads, netbooks and more - to any printer in our portfolio above $99. The world has changed."

In conjunction with the announcement, Google also said yesterday that it is working with HP on software that will let users connect to Google Docs, photos and its calendar offering directly from the new HP printers.
