Printing Internet Pages Could Use Less Ink With HP TouchSmart Web
HP's new Photosmart Premium with Touchsmart Web printer could save businesses and consumers on the amount of ink they use to print content from the internet.
That is according to an article about the device - the first web-enabled printer from the manufacturer - written by newsfactor.com.
According to the website, such printers can connect to home area networks meaning that users can print documents from their mobile phones.
However, one feature of the new HP offering, due to be released in the US later this year, is that it can connect directly to the internet without being plugged into a PC.
The HP printer is also an efficient ink user.
Content is chosen from the web with a touchscreen via HP's custom format applications - meaning that maps, tickets, recipes and other such things from popular sites can be printed using as little ink as possible, newsfactor.com reported.
HP manufactures a large range of printers including colour inkjet, multifunctional devices, speciality photo printers and laser printers.
