HP has announced two new All-in-One printers ready for Christmas. The new models - the HP Photosmart 2710 and HP Photosmart 2610 are geared towards the home office user and have connectivity at their heart.
Both new models offer networking capabilities, with 802.3 ethernet access, built-in PictBridge support and optional Bluetooth integration. Additionally, the HP Photosmart 2710 All-in-One supports wireless g connectivity.
Digital camera images can be imported either via the PictBridge support or via a memory card and can be previewed on the 8.8 cm colour LCD screen on the HP PSC 2710 or the 6.4cm colour LCD screen on the HP Photosmart 2610, and crop, zoom, edit or rotate photos.
The flatbed scanner lets users scan documents, photos and even 3D objects at 2400 x 4800-dpi optical resolution and 48-bit colour. With the HP Photosmart 2710 and HP Photosmart 2610 All-in-Ones, users can fax black and white and even colour documents via an inbuilt 33.6 kbps modem - all independently of the computer. The fax offers 75 speed dials, and a 90 page memory.
The HP Photosmart 2710 All-in-One will be available from December 2004 with a recommended street price of £349.99, while the HP Photosmart 2610 All-in-One will be available from November 2004 with a recommended street price of £299.99
