Palo Alto, Calif. — Hewlett-Packard launched two new printers to complement its slate of digital cameras today.
The company also introduced its first all-in-one printer that can print directly to CDs and DVDs.
The Photosmart D7260 inkjet printer can produce a 4-inch by 6-inch print in 10 seconds and cranks out black and white text at 34 pages per minute (ppm).
It sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, HP’s Smart Web printing technology for properly framing Web output and uses six individual ink tanks.
The D7260 also offers built-in Ethernet connectivity, memory card slots, one-button red-eye removal, and an automated photo paper tray that engages whenever photos are printed. It ships in August for an estimated $149.
For $179, D7460 builds on the D7260 with built-in wireless networking and compatibility with an optional two-sided printing accessory.
The company also introduced a new all-in-one, the C5280, offering direct to CD/DVD printing, Smart Web technology and an automatic paper sensor for optimizing print quality. Additional features include in-printer red-eye removal, a 2.4 inch LCD, memory card slots and automated paper tray. It offers speeds of 32 ppm for black and 24 ppm for color printing. Photo prints can be made in 27 seconds.
The unit features a 4,800 by 4,800 dpi resolution scanner with 48-bit color. It ships this month for an estimated $149.
The company will also host a blog on its Web site dedicated to discussing the inkjet market.
