HP OfficeJet 150 1st portable multi-function printer
The Officejet 150 all-in-one machine features a lithium-ion battery, allowing users to print up to 500 pages on a single charge.
Unlike other portable printers currently on the market today, the HP Officejet 150 will use standard cartridges. Printing costs per page should be between $0.12 per (colour), and $0.05 for black; with print speeds of between 3.5 to 5 pages per minute.
Printing, scanning, and copying functions will be controlled by the 2.36 inch colour touchscreen. In addition the device can print from Windows Mobile, and Blackberry mobile devices via a Bluetooth 2.0 wireless connection. However software providing the ability to print from Apple iPad and iPhone is not yet included. We find this surprising considering that most new HP printers now have the capability of printing from Apple mobile devices?
Included in the specification is a 50 pages sheet feeder, and a print resolutions of 600x600 black, and 4800x1200dpi colour. There is a USB 2.0 and PictBridge port, not to mention an SD card slot. A carry case will soon be made available for approximately $80.
We await UK prices and a release date. Further updates will be posted at http://www.printercartridges.net/ including ink cartridge costs for HP95 / HP98 (UK codes may be different).
