The urgent need to print some important documents while away from home or office, or while enjoying a holiday is nowhere less than an uphill struggle. Well, with the latest offering, users can now easily satisfy their printing needs with access to a printer even when they’re miles away from it. At an event held in Mumbai today, Hewlett-Packard India doffed the covers of its printer embedded with a revolutionary ePrint technology, the Photosmart Plus eAll-in-One B110e.
The B110e can seamlessly print, copy or scan print lab-quality photos, everyday documents, and creative projects, thereby making it ideal for business and personal reasons. The device has the capability of PC-less printing while users can email documents to the email address assigned to every printer. ePrint Center can now be accessed by users to instantly receive updates according to their preferences, configure their devices, track ePrint jobs, and browse or suggest new print apps.
“HP is first in the league to have introduced the web-empowered, cloud-enabled printing in India. Our consumers today demand for technology that allows them access to internet on the move, and as the leader in the consumer printing segment, HP continues to innovate to give consumers the freedom to access content, and print from anywhere without a PC,” shared Rajkumar Rishi, Director, Inkjet & Web Solutions, Imaging & Printing Group, HP India.
Also present at the Photosmart Plus eAll-in-One B110e launch was a well-known fashion photographer, Vikram Bawa. The company demonstrated the printer’s capabilities of printing via an HP cloud through an email. Folks at our end emailed us some documents on the demo printer’s HP email address through their smartphones. The documents were printed all aligned in the same order with a clear printing finish.
HP also offers HP iPrint Photo, a photo printing application which is accessible through smartphones. This app is available on various smartphone platforms including Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch, Windows Mobile via the Windows Marketplace store, Symbian via the Nokia Ovi store, and Android via the Android Market. The pocket-friendly printer is designed to be eco-conscious and consumes 30 percent less power than standard models.
