announced new all-in-one printing and imaging devices for consumers at home or in the office, including devices the company claims are the world’s smallest flatbed all-in-one and a home office all-in-one with networking capabilities.
The US$149 HP PSC 1210 flatbed all-in-one combines color printing, scanning and copying in a single product that sports up to 4800 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) and print speeds of up to 12 pages per minute (ppm) in black and up to 10 ppm in color.
The home office all-in-one with the networking capabilities is the HP Officejet 7100 series, which is targeted to small business and home office consumers. The series offers a range of color printing, copying, scanning and faxing capabilities. The HP Officejet 7100 series includes the 7110, 7130 and 7140xi, each offering a variation of accessories. All 7100 series models are compatible with the HP Jetdirect 280m and 200m accessories for network printing and scanning capabilities and select network faxing capabilities.
They offer print speeds of up to 22 ppm in black and up to 18 ppm in color. With these devices, you can print photos directly from a digital camera memory card using built-in card slots supporting CompactFlash, Secure Digital, MultiMedia, Sony Memory Stick and Smart Media formats.
The HP Officejet 7100 series hold up to 400 sheets of paper (a 250 sheet paper tray is included) and offer up to 4800 x 1200 dpi prints when using HP’s premium photo paper.
The HP PSC 1210 and HP Officejet 7100 series all-in-ones are expected to be available within the next few weeks. The HP Officejet 7100 all-in-one series is expected to sell for $399-699.
There were no technical specs on HP’s Web sites about the new devices. However, their predecessors have been compatible with Mac OS X 10.1 (and higher) and Mac OS 9.x.
