HP reveals new Officejet printers to help boost productivity on the go

14 Apr 2011

HP has released two new business inkjet solutions designed to help business customers – especially mobile workers – maximise productivity.

The HP Officejet Pro 8000 Enterprise Printer and HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer are especially targeted at mobile professionals.

“The mobile workforce and trends in telecommuting have altered the business landscape and technology requirements in recent years, and customer expectations have never been higher when it comes to printing,” said Stephen Nigro, senior vice-president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP.

Features of the new HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer include a long-life lithium ion battery, which can print up to 500 pages when the battery is fully charged, while its 65-watt AC power adapter is compatible with selected HP Notebooks.

Built-in Bluetooth wireless technology means users can print documents on the go from mobile devices.

The network-enabled HP Officejet Pro 8000 Enterprise Printer includes a HP Universal Print Driver and HP Web Jetadmin to integrate the device into managed printing environments. It’s also compatible across existing IT infrastructures and operating environments, with support for SAP, Windows Cluster Server and Citrix Server, for instance. Energy wise, HP says this printer creates colour documents for up to 50pc lower cost per page and energy use than laser printers.

The HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer is available for €279 through HP and HP authorised resellers.

The HP Officejet Pro 8000 Enterprise Printer is available for €199 through HP, HP authorised resellers and pay-per-use HP Managed Print Services contracts.
