HP may have had to cancel their Innovation for Impact Summit because of Hurricane Irene, but that didn’t stop the Imaging and Printing Group from unveiling several new products including the HP Envy 110 e-All-in-One.

The Envy 110 is a follow up to the first generation Envy 100 released last fall and shares the same unique design that looks more like a cable box or DVD player than the traditional form factor of an AIO.

At first glance, the differences are minor between the two models. HP has backed off advertising the high (exaggerated) print speeds with the Envy 110, listing the ISO print speeds of 7 ppm in black and 4 ppm in color, and the trim for the Envy 110 is done in bronze as opposed to silver.

But the real question are either models really a better option than what we’ve seen from HP’s Officejet and Photosmart lineups?  Read our full review and find out now!

The Envy 110’s build is identical to the previous generation Envy 100. They share the same dimensions at approximately 17 x 13 x 4-inches with a flat box look that’s more in line with a cable box. Unlike a cable box though, the top of the Envy 110 flips open to reveal the 24-bit flatbed scanner.

The Envy 110’s flatbed measures in at 8.5 x 11.7 inches with an optical resolution up to 1200 dpi. The scanner itself is about as basic as they come on HP AIOs. 

The adjustable 3.45-inch touchscreen is one of the main selling points on the Envy 110. Centered on the front of the device, users can scroll through their customized web-connected applications or select one of four devices available on the Envy 110: print, copy, scan or eFax.

HP also includes the old favorite ePrint and the new darling, AirPrint. While ePrint allows users to print from any device to an HP printer using a unique email address, AirPrint is strictly for Apple customers using an iPad, iPad2, iPhone or iPod Touch with iOS 4.2 or later.

The built-in card reader features a SD card slot (also compatible with MMC and MS Duo) and a USB port. Print photos and supported documents or save a scanned image directly without the need of a PC.

Lift up at the middle to access the two cartridge ink system. The Envy 110 uses a dye-based HP 60 tri-color cartridge and a pigment-based HP 60 black ink cartridge. High capacity HP 60XL ink replacements are available.

The paper capacity has not increased on the Envy 110. The second generation e-All-in-One still offers an 80-sheet paper cassette (30-sheet photo paper) compatible with a range of media sized from 3 x 5 inches to 8.5 x 11.7 inches.

The Envy 110 offers users two connectivity options: Hi-Speed USB 2.0 or wireless. If you want to use all of the features available on the Envy 110, you’ll need to set it up over a wireless connection.
