HP goes mobile with business printers

HP's new printers are designed to aid workers on the move, with Bluetooth and eprinting capabilities.

HP has introduced a range of inkjet solutions to bring together printing and mobility.

The HP Officejet Pro 8000 Enterprise Printer and HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer are designed to allow workers to print quality documents from mobile devices.

“The mobile workforce and trends in telecommuting have altered the business landscape and technology requirements in recent years, and customer expectations have never been higher when it comes to printing,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president at HP’s imaging and printing group.

The Officejet 100 Mobile Printer comes with Bluetooth wireless technology so employees using laptops, netbooks or smartphones can print whilst on the move.

That particular printer is compatible with Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, HP webOS and Nokia Symbian smartphones, as well as Bluetooth-enabled notebooks and netbooks.

Android and iPhone owners appear to have been left out of the loop.

The Officejet Pro 8000, also has e-printing functionality, so as long as the users are hooking up via BlackBerry or HP webOS devices.

Employees can also use Google Cloud Print-supported apps running on smartphones, tablets or PCs to connect to the printer, thanks to a recent partnership between Google and HP.

In addition to efficiency features, HP Universal Print Driver and HP Web Jetadmin both come with the Officejet Pro 8000 to help IT departments integrate the device into managed printing environments.

The Officejet 100 Mobile Printer is available worldwide for US$279, whilst the Officejet Pro 8000 Enterprise Printer has been priced at $199.
