It scans, it prints, it faxes, all with a gorgeous touchscreen interface. But that interface can run apps hosted on HP servers, too.
What sets the HP Photosmart Premium apart from other all-in-one devices is its ability to run small print apps hosted on the Web that format information as diverse as movie tickets and product comparisons for two-sided printouts.
Only a few companies (but more than the initial very few) have developed print apps for their sites. HP hasn't yet released the software developer's kit to any but a few partners. But we describe some of the more useful apps in our review (like Snapfish) before continuing with a consideration of the unit's scanning and printing capabilities.
HP's touchscreen interface is really the bright, shining star of this unit, though. It's well thought-out, easy to navigate and provides helpful animations of tasks like installing ink cartridges.
