According to the New York Times, HP will this week introduce a new series of web-connected printers that are designed for life in the “iPhone age.” Different from its existing line of printers, the new printers will contain something unique — its own email address. The entire idea behind the new printers is simple. Instead of having having people install special applications to their smartphone to print files, all they need to do is email the file to their printer. It sounds incredibly novel, but companies such as Google believe they have a chance and and have partnered with HP to allow for easy printing of Google Docs and Calendar. Other companies will support the new printers with a store known as the ePrintCenter. The printers are expected to range in price from $99 to $400 and will be fitted with touchscreen panels.
