HP is hoping there're a lot of people out there with mass printing needs but without regular Internet access. Their new PhotoSmart Premium printer has a Wi-Fi-enabled touchscreen on the front that allows a user to print directly from the Internet. The idea is that the printer would be a quick way of printing out online directions, pictures, movie tickets, and so forth, without the need of a computer.
HP even plans on teaming up with Google, Fandango, Snapfish, and other websites to provide easy-access widgets for the printer. But at a price of $399 and with a screen rivaling an iPhone's in size, it's unclear if this printer will capture the computer-less market from people who could probably afford a netbook and cheap printer for the same price.
isn't this a fax machine?
This is really confusing. A printer thats better for people who don't have regular internet access because instead of connecting to a computer it connects to the internet? An internet enabled printer is gonna help if you don't have internet? Is this proposing that you take this printer around with you to places with wi-fi? Is that really more portable than a laptop?
hi sir this is rely very great information of the internet and printer connection without computer . i rely like it . thanks for useful information .
One of the great things about in-game money and virtual economies is that they never went through this whole economic meltdown. So take that to all of those people who think the real world is better then computer games!

Very nice. I can use it to print maps and coupons from the Internet without any assistance from my computer. This will allow me to used my computer to work on other activities. Similar to Internet-enabled television and other household electronic appliances, it is a wonderful piece of technology enabling distributed residential computer services and I hope there will be more such innovations to come so I may choose not to be burden with all Internet activity everything being dependent on one computer in the house.
I think for the consumer who does not have a regular need for a printer,then this little gadget would be an added advantage. I am not sure that I would find a use for it, as with the improved communication machines and printing tickets for activities is not necessary, as you just carry your purchase number ID and worse case scenario, if you did not own a printer, yet your phone was printer enabled, you could just drop into your Internet Cafe and done. Printed and your on your way.
Having said this I do like the idea of not clogging up your internet and PC when households want to print. I would like to try before I buy as the quality is something that concerns me.
This is a cool option for you photo printing needs as it is almost portable compared to the larger printer. Being connected to the internet is a bonus and well worth the purchase.
