Hewlett-Packard may have recently
trashed its TouchPad tablet and accompanying webOS platform
, but that doesn't mean it's giving up on mobile technologies for good.
HP just announced a series of
new mobile and 3D printing products
at its Imaging and Printing Conference last Thursday that will help HP home and business customers embrace useful technologies on-the-go.
HP's latest peripherals allow users to print directly from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Customers can now print from mobile devices via peer-to-peer connection without network or Internet access via HP ePrint Wireless Direct and supported HP printers.
In addition, HP will release a new HP Printer Control app for those running
iOS 4.2 or greater
on their iPhones. This app allows a user to control their printer wirelessly, monitor the printer's status, and scan documents and photos from a supported HP scanner to Google Docs, Facebook or email through the phone. This app does not have a confirmed release date yet.
There will also be a basic HP ePrint Home and Biz app for iOS, Android, tablets and Symbian phones due out later this month, which allows for simple printing tasks through mobile devices.
While mobile printing provides convenience, HP is also looking to provide a whole new finished product when you print, scan or copy with the TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 -- HP's first color multifunction product (MFP) with TopShot Scanning to capture images of 3D objects.
The TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 allows users to
scan/capture images of 3D objects
, and send them to the Web through business apps. Users can also print from a mobile device wirelessly without a network, and is compatible with Apple's Airprint for wireless printing from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
HP's TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 offers a list of features, including 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen; an ARM 11 embedded processor at 600 MHz; scan resolution up to 245 dpi; copy resolution up to 600 x 600 dpi; monthly volume of up to 20,000 pages; 150-sheet input tray; print speeds of up to 17 ppm black or 4 ppm color, and standard connectivity with 1 Hi-Speed USB 2.0, 1 Fast Ethernet 10/100Base-TX and 1 Wireless 802.11 b/g/n.
The TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 is due to be released in November 2011, and the price is unknown at this point.

but that doesn't mean it's giving up on mobile technologies for good
One of the other headlines on Daily Tech today was about how more than half of internet users will access the internet via a mobile device by 2015. The three most likely means of doing that are via notebooks, tablets, and smartphones.
HP Tablet = gone.
HP Smart phones = gone.
Notebooks = going ... going ... gone!
In short: In the next 4 years there will be hundreds of millions of users who will want a means to access the internet and HP has given up wanting to be the that means, even though they have the capability and experience to do it!
If I was a shareholder, then I think I would be selling my shares while they still have some value.
I think both Hewlett and Packard would express discontent with the current direction the board of directors is taking the company in.
