New HP printers, cameras
HP today announced a slew of new products for fall. The company has rolled out more than 100 imaging and printing products for the home/office that include six HP Photosmart printers and all-in-ones, its first printer with a touch-activated image display, a compact photo printer capable of storing up to 4,000 photos, and four compact digital cameras. HP also unveiled new versions of the HP 57 and HP 78 ink cartridges, named HP 57+ and HP 78+. The cartridges work with existing HP printers, but contain HP Vivera ink to produce text and photos that last up to 50 years longer than the original HP inks, according to the company.
For the back-to-school and holiday shopping seasons, the company debuted its first touch-activated LCD on the new HP Photosmart D7360 Photo Printer for a kiosk-like printing experience at home.
The HP Photosmart A716 Compact Photo Printer is the only printer of its kind capable of storing up to 4,000 photos, according to HP. The device features a sleek design, a built-in handle, and an optional battery for portability.
Compact digital cameras
HP added four models to its digital camera line -- two of which feature HP steady photo anti-shake mode designed to help prevent blurred photos. The company's top model is the 10-megapixel HP Photosmart R967 Digital Camera, which features a 3-inch image display, a metal body, and a sleek silver design.
