PMA Spring 2005 Index Booth Report: Hewlett Packard (UPDATED)
By Shawn Barnett, The Imaging Resource
(Monday, February 21, 2005 - 01:10 EST)

Probably the first item of greatest interest at the Hewlett Packard booth is something we'll be covering at length, the HP PhotoSmart 8750 printer.

Billed as a Professional Printer, the 8750 has nine inks and 13x19 print output. Two of the nine inks are light grey and dark grey, which combine with black to produce greater range in black and white photos. Stay tuned for more on this.

The march of megapixels continues with the HP PhotoSmart R717. This popular design now offers a 6.2 megapixel imager, red-eye removal, SD card storage, a Li-ion battery, and a 1.8 inch LCD display. It's slated to ship this Spring for $299.

Quite a bit shorter is the M417, which has a 5.2 megapixel output, a 1.8 inch display, and runs on two AA batteries. It'll also be available when Winter breaks for $199.

Also of interest is the new BMW Williams version of the PhotoSmart R607, honoring HP's sponsorship of the BMW Williams Formula One racing team. Pricing is unavailable at this time.
