HP Adds Cloud Printing for Consumers

June 07, 2010
By


Hewlett Packard has launched new capabilities for its printers which will allow its customers to print documents from anywhere in the world using their mobile devices. Dubbed ePrint, the new system will be bundled within a range of HP's consumer printers.

"From a mom and son printing drawings from an iPad, to an executive on a train sending a presentation from a Palm Pre or Blackberry smartphone to print and pick up at a FedEx Office store, HP ePrint allows people to print anytime, anywhere," said the company in a press release.

Users will be able to access Google Docs, Photos and Calendar directly from their printers, without the use of a connected PC. Every HP ePrint 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 such as a hotel or FedEx Office store. Customers will be able to send Microsoft Office documents, PDFs and JPEG image files, among others.

“We are once again revolutionizing printing to make web-empowered, cloud-enabled printing the new industry standard,” said Vyomesh Joshi, Executive Vice President, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “We know that our customers want an easy way to print their content, anywhere, anytime. We’re making that a reality today by giving people the power to print from any web-connected device – smartphones, iPads, netbooks and more – to any printer in our portfolio above $99. The world has changed.”
