HP unveils new range of web-enabled printers Devices lets you print documents via the cloud
12 June 2010
HP today unveiled its forthcoming range of web-enabled printers, allowing consumers to store, edit and print documents from anywhere in the world.
HP's new ePrint technology allows consumers to print from any email-enabled device to any ePrint-enabled printer, HP said.
It also removes the need for consumers to network their smartphones or iPads to a printer in order to print.
According to the printer manufacturer, an application downloaded from the company website all they need.
HP said its ePrint technology will be available on all HP e-all-in-one printers.
A range of models from the ePrint series of printers are expected to be launched in the UK between July and October.

Printing via the web
Every HP ePrint printer will have its own unique email address. As long as consumers know the email address of the printer, they can print jobs from anywhere in the world via email or via ePrint applications when printing using smartphones.
HP's cloud computing services and ePrintCentre
Cloud computing is a web-based computing service. HP's cloud computing services allows consumers to store, edit and print documents via the cloud.
The HP ePrintCentre is an online hub - accessible only to HP customers - and is useful for tracking ePrint jobs, searching for new print applications and receiving updates, the company said.
The apps available may vary per country and the exact UK launch dates for the ePrint enabled printers are yet to be confirmed.
