HP launches printer-themed App Studio

updated 01:20 pm EDT, Tue September 8, 2009

Apps provide ready-made content

HP has introduced the App Studio, a new service attached to a recent printer, the Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web. Apps allow the printer to quickly print off sanctioned content, such as movie tickets, art projects from Disney, photos from Flickr or 60 Minutes articles from CBS. The service uses an open API, and HP is hoping to introduce a variety of new print apps in the future, in some cases based on user suggestions.

The company has meanwhile begun selling the Deskjet D2600 series, a collection of color printers half-manufactured from recycled plastic. Models cost between $50 and $70, but are mainly meant for ordinary, low-end printing jobs. The printers also rely on just two ink cartridges -- one with with black ink, and a second with three inks in tandem.
