HP launches new web-enabled printer

Posted: June 23, 2009 in Tech

HP has launched a web-enabled printer that can connect to popular websites and print content without a PC.

The HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support and a 4.33in touchscreen. The printer will use custom-written applications to scrape content from websites. These apps, which are viewable on an extra-large, intuitive-to-use TouchSmart panel, allow people to connect instantly with fun, informative and personal content.

Using these applications, users can connect to sites to print out news, maps, money-saving coupons and cinema tickets, all without having to switch on their PC.

HP added that the world’s first HP app partners will be USA TODAY, Google, Fandango, Coupons.com, DreamWorks Animation, Nickelodeon, Web Sudoku and Weather News Inc.
