HP released information on Tuesday about a new lineup of wireless printers and pledged to make the entire HP Photosmart printer series wireless by 2010.
The five new Photosmart models all feature built-in wireless, fast print speeds, HP Vivera inks and start at $129.
The “highlight” of the new printers is the Limited Edition HP Photosmart C4599 All-in-One. The Photosmart C4599 features print speeds up to 30 pages per minute, multiple memory card slots, a 1.5-inch color display and optional six-ink color.
The Photosmart C4500 all-in-one series share many of the same qualities: print speed, a 1.5-inch display and optional six-inch color but comes in at $20 less.
The Photosmart C6300 all-in-one series is loaded with features including print speeds up to 33 pages per minute, a 2.4-inch color display, prints photos in as fast as 18 seconds and offers high-capacity HP 564XL cartridges that produce three times more black printed pages according to HP.
The Photosmart C5500 all-in-one series and Photosmart D7560 are both Bluetooth enabled allowing users to print direct from cell phones, PDA’s and other Bluetooth devices. The C5500 AIO features a 2.4-inch color display, print speeds up to 34 pages per minute and a 4,800 x 4,800 dpi resolution scanning.
The D7560 offers print speeds up to 33 pages per minute, a 3.5-inch touch screen display and five-ink printing with HP’s 564XL cartridges.
