In what was certainly a very fitting way to kick off the Internet Week event in New York, HP’s executive vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, Vyomesh Joshi unveiled a new category of web-enabled printing solutions designed for the cloud that will, for the first time the company claims, allow people to:
• Print from any email device to any new ePrint-enabled printer from anywhere in the world through the new HP ePrint platform;
• Store documents or files in the cloud and print direct when needed;
• Transform their printers into publishing platforms from which they can customize print apps and schedule timed delivery of content – such as news from msnbc.com and Yahoo! and creative after-school activities from Disney – directly to their home or business printers;
• Manage and customize their full printing experience through the new HYPERLINK “http://www.hp.com/go/eprintcenter”HP ePrintCenter to enjoy relevant, fun and interesting content that is formatted for efficient printing.
HP essentially proclaimed that the PC is no longer essential to print documents, photos, reports, homework, tickets, etc.
