HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web  (Source: Gizmodo)
HP's web printer can surf the web like no other

HP announced Tuesday what they are calling the world’s first Web-connected home printer: The HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web. The new Web-enabled printing platform is expected to be available this fall and cost an estimated $399.

The HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web distinguishes itself not only in its ability to connect to the Web, but also in its HP applications (apps) feature, similar to that of other Internet-connected devices.  The feature includes preloaded apps on the printer and also allows users to download new apps via the HP Apps Studio.
 
In late 2009, users will be allowed to take the feature a step further, by creating and sharing their own personalized apps.  HP’s first app partners include: USA TODAY, Google, Fandango, Coupons.com, DreamWorks Animation, Nickelodeon, Web Sudoku and Weathernews Inc. Among other things, these partnerships will allow users to view/print news stories, maps, weekly schedules, coupons, recipes, movie tickets, coloring pages, word finds and more.

The printing platform will also let users connect directly to their Snapfish accounts and will make additional projects available through the HP Creative Studio.

Apps, photos and additional projects will be viewed on a 4.33-inch touchscreen, which, according to HP, stands as the largest LCD touchscreen of any all-in-one inkjet printer on the market.

The HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web will also grant the ability to fax, copy and scan. It will provide opportunities for both wired and wireless connectivity, enabling users to print from a variety of devices, such as Wi-Fi-enabled PCs or the Apple iPhone.

In an HP press release, Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP, offered an opinion on the significance of the new product: “By giving people access to the content they want at the touch of a finger, the ability to customize their printing experience and create their own apps, and enabling easy 'one touch' wireless setup, we are driving a significant shift in how people will be printing in the future.”
