in. BusinessWeek reports:
HP announced the
products at an event in San Francisco to show off its division that makes
cameras, printers and other digital-imaging products. HP's imaging and printing
group generated $25.2 billion in sales in the year that ended in October, about

profitable division, with operating earnings of $3.4 billion, or about 13.6
percent of its 2005 profit.
