HP ePrint Center "is a new online printing service which enables any email capable device to print to a range of new Web-connected devices without the need for printer drivers. Every ePrint-enabled printer will come with its own e-mail address, via which smartphones, iPads and PCs can print any document, simply by sending the printer an email. All HP printers over $99 will ship with ePrint feature," HP revealed. A range of apps will also be available for devices at HP ePrint Center, enhancing printer experience with a range of content and additional features. Apps are already available from a broad set of publishers and content owners including Disney, 60 Minutes, Google Maps, Coupons.com, Fandango and many others. The printer, it appears, is now a platform.

HP's new printers are powered by Google Cloud Print, a service available in the Autumn, which proposed the lofty goal allows any app to print to any printer, anywhere in the world. Whilst the service works seamlessly on Cloud Aware Printers, legacy printers will need to be attached to a powered on PC to work. Documents can be printed immediately or stored in the cloud for printing at a later date.
