When HP introduced its first three ePrint-enabled printers several months ago, we were anxious to test its "print anywhere" capabilities after the touch-screen app store featured on last year's HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web failed to deliver enough content.
HP's latest Web-ready printer is the HP Envy 100, a product that demonstrates innovative hardware and software design--a look that may soon dominate HP's line of imaging devices.
Although you'll notice the back of the printer only has a single USB port and no Ethernet connectivity, HP actually recommends using the 802.11b/g/n wireless printer server inside so you can take advantage of the ePrintCenter, or HP's online store that lets you download free apps directly on the device.
The wireless connection also enables ePrint itself; ePrint is HP's answer for mobile devices like iPads and smartphones that don't have a USB port to print directly from a computer. Instead, ePrint lets you send jobs directly to the printer using a unique e-mail address assigned to each printer that comes off the line.
Curious to see how ePrint and the HP Envy 100 stack up to the competition?
