New HP Printers With Email Addresses Would Support iPads

submitted on June 8, 2010 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
New HP printers are going to be optimized for the Internet - they will have their own email addresses. That means any device with email access can print to these printers. Basically, you just email your pictures to your printer and they’ll be waiting for you when you get home. This means easy printing from iPads and smartphones, or Web services like Google Docs, Maps and Calendar. Big Grin Artistic

H.P. has lined up 40 partners for a Web site, the ePrintCenter , which the company envisions as a kind of app store . See the list of free downloads they have already at .

This type of technology could make finding and using a printer at an airport, hotel or office easier as well. H.P. also expects to have about 7,000 printing kiosks in retail stores by the end of this year, pumping out photos, books and brochures.

H.P. plans to offer a few of these new printers to consumers this month, and then a few more of the products to small businesses in September. It expects to sell more than 15 million of the Web printers by next year.

    iPads/iPhones can already print to wireless/bluetooth printers via Apps available on the App store.

      Of course, printing to a nearby printer is easy. But think of the possibilities - you could send something to a (capable) printer anywhere in the world! Artistic This could replace faxing (poor quality) or mailing (takes too long) if HP can sell a lot of these printers (and ink).
