HP announces ePrint cloud printing platform

Summary:HP has unveiled a new service that allows users to print documents from smartphones, tablets or laptops to any printer using email

HP on Monday unveiled a web-enabled, cloud-friendly printing service that allows users to print using email.

The new platform, called ePrint, allows users to print from any device to a web-enabled printer using email. Each printer gets its own unique email address, and designated users can use their smartphone, tablet or laptop to print remotely without using drivers.

The cloud-based platform allows for several new things, including storing files in the cloud and printing them when necessary. Publishers can customise print apps and schedule content delivery to printers, and printing can be managed from the HP ePrintCenter, an online hub.
