HP Photosmart A630 A530
HP on Tuesday used the wake of its Centrino 2 announcements to reveal three new Photosmart printers that include an allegedly record-setting model. The A630's 4.8-inch touch LCD is the largest of any totable photo printer and allows upwards of 300 potential editing touches to be made to photos on the printer itself; a simpler A530 model goes with a smaller screen but is characterized as the least expensive photo printer capable of larger 5-by-7 inch prints.
Both optionally support Bluetooth for cameraphones and similarly wireless devices, and will arrive in August for prices of $149 for the A630 and $99 for the A530.
The Photosmart D5460 upgrades earlier multi-function models and prints both photos as well as "laser-quality" text documents, according to HP. It also prints labels directly to supporting CDs and DVDs. It should be available later today for $99.
