Previously occupied solely by classy aluminum-clad notebooks, HP has expanded its Envy product line to include the new Envy 100 printer. It can print, scan, copy and connect to the Internet, and it has an integrated 3.45-inch touchscreen for control navigation. It also ditches conventional paper holders with a mechanically retractable input and output trays. CNET compares this to the way an optical drive works.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A Plus upgrades that to a 4.3-inch touchscreen and has access to Google Docs, Google Maps, as well as other apps and services in the HP ePrintCenter app store. The Photosmart eStation is possibly the most unique of today's arrivals, adding a detachable 7-inch Android tablet that can print wirelessly and features an array of apps (it can't access the Android Market though).
Engadget has a hands-on video of the Photosmart eStation if you're interested in seeing it in action. The Envy 100 is priced at $249 and will ship on October 4. Meanwhile the Officejet Pro 8500A Plus and flagship Photosmart eStation both appear to be available online for $299 and $399.
