HP Introduces Asia Pacific’s First Web-Connected and Cloud Print-Enabled Printers
HP has recently introduced their latest web-empowered e-All-in-One printers for home and business that allow users to print their content anywhere, anytime. With the HP ePrint platform, people can send the files they want to print from their mobile devices.
HP has unveiled their new web-enabled printing solutions that will allow consumers and businesses to:
- Enjoy quick, easy, access to popular digital content via an entirely new web-based printing platform with HP applications (apps);
- Print from any email device to any new ePrint-enabled printer from anywhere in the world through the new HP ePrint platform;
- Store documents or files in the cloud and print direct when needed;
- Manage and customize their full printing experience through the new HP ePrintCenter to enjoy relevant, fun and interesting content that is formatted for efficient printing.
To showcase these new solutions, HP announced a full suite of web-empowered e-All-in-One printers for home and business that start at S$199. These are the first web-empowered and cloud print-enabled printers in Asia Pacific that will allow instant, direct access to the Internet without requiring a local proxy PC or web appliance. This means people will be able to enjoy access to customized pages on DreamWorks and Google Calendar directly from their printers – all at the touch of a finger via HP’s intuitive TouchSmart screen.
HP ePrint: if you can email it, you can print it
The HP ePrint platform harnesses the cloud to break down the barriers of distance and connectivity and allows people to send the files they want to print from their mobile devices anytime, anywhere.
Every HP web-connected printer will have a unique simple email address that allows the sender to deliver a print the same way they would send an email message. Customers also can send documents to print through an HP ePrint mobile app on their smartphone device to a home, office or public print location. Customers will be able to send Microsoft Office documents, Adobe PDFs and JPEG image files, among others.
With the new HP ePrint-enabled printers, customers can print free, personalized online content directly from the Web without a PC. The types of content available include customized daily news, coloring pages from popular entertainment properties, personal calendars and more. These apps are viewable on an extra-large, intuitive-to-use TouchSmart panel on the new e-All-in-One printer line-up.
HP ePrintCenter: a home for all things printing
The HP ePrintCenter is an online hub for all HP customers to explore new services and customize their printing experience. Consumers can register their products and receive updates according to their preferences, configure their devices, track ePrint jobs, and browse and suggest new print apps.
