HP's vision: a fleet of printers, all connected to the cloud, all with their own email addresses. No more drivers, no extra cost. You'll be able to print from your smartphone or iPad. If printing has a future, it's this.
It's not as though we didn't see this coming: the New York Times spilled some info about HP's ePrint system this morning, and Google's had their eye on could-based printing for some time. But with today's official announcement we now know the impressive scope of HP's vision: millions of web-connected Photosmart printers coming this fall, for as little as $99, using the cloud to receive and send content.
