Wireless Printing For All
On Nov. 1, HP will begin shipping the 1200w Mobile Print Accessory, a little device that adds wireless printing capability to any HP printer with a USB port. "IT departments say, 'It's not a pretty solution but we need it,'" said an HP spokesperson of the device. "And the next question is usually, 'When can I get them?'" About the size of a deck of cards, the device will accept output from Apple's AirPrint, HP's wireless direct printing and NFC touch-to-print protocols, and offers a range of about 120 feet. List price is $69, but it will be introduced at $39, HP said.
