HP's printing and imaging business is booming

HP just announced that it has introduced over 100 new products ranging from the consumer market all the way up to the enterprise level. The new products include digital cameras, printers and other consumer oriented products to make your digital life easier.

Among the new products include the 10MP Photosmart R967 digital camera which features a 3" LCD screen and 3x optical zoom. Additional features include an anti-shake system, 32MB of internal memory, 17 shooting modes, 24FPS VGA movie mode and a metal body. The R967 has an estimated street price of $449 and will be available in September.

Other newcomers include the 7.2MP Photosmart R827, 6MP Photosmart E427, 7MP Photosmart M627, Photosmart A716 Compact Photo Printer, Photosmart D7630 Photo Printer with touch-screen LCD and Photosmart A430 Portable Photo Studio.

HP's image and printing group is a huge money-maker for the company, so the influx of new products is sure to keep the money train rolling 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 29 percent of HP's annual revenue of $86.7 billion. The group is HP's most profitable division, with operating earnings of $3.4 billion, or about 13.6 percent of its 2005 profit.

Very true! They used to stand for quality, and thus the price premiums were justified; my $200 HP scientific calcalutor from the 90s still going strong.

Now the price premiums are still there, but not the quality. We used to have lots of problems with their laser printers every single day at work until they were all replaced with Japanese and Lexmark brands.

The only HP product I use and swear by is their laser priters. I've owned lots of HP, Epson & Canon inkjets over the years and I must say Canon beats HP hands down these days. For your info stay away from Epson...don't even touch it or look at it.

Epson inkjets has good photo printouts...for as long as the warranty is valid, plus a year or so.

HP's past printers are really solid. I have 850C and 810Cs still working.

99/100 are new printers I'm sure

There will be some new inks yes. They will be by far the best inks available for consumer home printing though.
