Print, Edit, View and Scan Photos without a PC: Wireless Touch Screen Technology Pushes Printers to New Level

Thanks to ever growing innovative technology, the days of scattered accessories piling up on desks or having to be re-connected around the house or office are gone. From faxes to scanners to Wi-Fi, here is a printer that brings it all under one roof.

Multiple Functions

The HP Photosmart Premium All-in-Oneprinter is for those always on-the-go or for connected families who need a printer that can handle the entire household’s needs such as printing, scanning, and copying everyday documents to photos. This new product has built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Ethernet capabilities for notebooks, PCs and mobile devices.

The printer is equipped with a TouchSmart control panel and a 3.45-inch touch screen and users can view, edit and print lab-quality photos from online albums at Snapfish without connecting to a PC. Touchscreen connectivity to Snapfish enables users to archive, share, and create projects or print photos from the site.

Eco-friendly Gadget

It is designed with the environment in mind and is ENERGY STAR® (joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping to save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products) qualified – its all-in-one design reduces energy use by more than 25 percent over the previous model and features paper-saving options such as automatic two-sided printing.

Web pages can be printed with HP Smart Web Printing and save ink and paper by combining web pages onto one printed page. It also identifies features that reduce environmental impact with the HP Eco Highlights label. There is an “Eco-tips” button in the HP Solution Center to learn more about how to print responsibly, conserve resources and recycle.

Features and Benefits

The printer quickly prints templates such as fax cover sheets, calendars, notebook paper and games including Sudoku with the Quick Forms button on the TouchSmart screen. Setting up the printer on a home network is also easy with its one touch wireless connectivity.

This printer can even be connected to wirelessly print borderless 4 x 6-inch photos from the iPhone or iPod touch using HP iPrint Photo available for free on the Apple App Store. Users can also directly print from a PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) and capture and print screens to show as proof of achievements. Another feature is dragging and dropping photos to a desktop icon from folders, applications, e-mail and websites for printing.

Users can save time and avoid common printing errors with an auto-engaging photo tray, Instant Photo fix, automatic red-eye removal and HP Auto Sense technology. Photo and creative projects can be created in at the HP Creative Studio, edited, stored and printed; photo cards, calendars and more can be made with Windows Live Photo Gallery. Another goodie is being able to get up to three times more black pages and 2.5 times more color pages using optional high-capacity cartridges.
