With the M275, users can print from mobile devices without network or Internet access.
HP has unveiled the world's first Web-connected colour laser multifunction printer (MFP), known as the HP TopShot Laserjet Pro M275, reports Social Barrel.
The MFP brings technology worth tens of thousands of dollars to small businesses and regular consumers for less than $400, with a dedicated app to upload scanned 3D objects directly to auction sites.
HP`s latest peripherals allow users to print directly from mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablet computers, via peer-to-peer connections without network or Internet access. This is done via HP ePrint Wireless Direct and supported HP printers, states Daily Tech.
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 users 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 e-mail through their phones.
Using the Biz Card app, the printer can scan and import multiple business cards simultaneously, and can also make use of the HP cloud for extra online storage, writes IT News Africa.
It can upload any scanned image to a device without using a conventional PC, and connects wirelessly to an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, making use of Apple AirPrint.
