HP puffed its chest when announcing the Photosmart Premium web-connected touch-enabled printer, and I understand why. You can print coloring books, movie tickets and news reports without even owning a computer. It works, and works well.
Apps are taking smartphones by storm, so why not invade every other consumer electronic device. Back in June HP released its PhotoSmart Premium with TouchSmart Web and now developers can write apps for the world's first web-connected printer.
After playing around with HP's new web-enabled printer, it's clear they didn't take any shortcuts with the hardware, equipping it with a responsive, capacitive touch panel. But besides the same types who buy digital photo frames, will anyone use this?
HP just announced their new HP Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web, which has a web-connected touchpanel on the front, allowing you to print out content such as maps and coupons, straight from your printer.
