Printers can be so inconvenient. Most are big, bulky, stationary, and sometimes downright obstinate. HP, however, has just released the Sprocket -- a pocket-sized printer that can easily print 2" x 3" photos from a smartphone. The Sprocket is 4.53 x 2.95 x 0.87 inches and weighs just 0.379 pounds. It comes with up to 512MB of onboard storage along with Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC connectivity. The Sprocket incorporates a two-cell 500 mAh Li-Polymer 7.4 V battery and takes roughly 90 minutes to charge. The print quality is 313 x 400 dpi and the device supports .jpeg, .tiff (iOS only), .gif, .bmp,... Read more...
Over the weekend, we reported that Hewlett-Packard had made the unsavory move of essentially bricking scores of third-party ink cartridges that were in use in customers’ printers. HP’s rather brazen move was easy to track down since it programmed its printer firmware to throw up an error message on September 13th, meaning that thousands of customers experienced ink cartridge failures at the exact same time. HP is now coming clean about its move that had angered some customers. The company released a statement to the Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (NOS), which is part of the Netherlands Public Broadcasting... Read more...
HP just made a rather large acquisition -- the company announced that it is purchasing Samsung’s printer business for $1.05 billion. The agreement was presented at Samsung Electronics’ Board of Directors meeting in Seoul, South Korea. Dion Weisler, president and CEO of HP, remarked, “When we became a separate company just 10 months ago, it enabled us to become nimble and focus on accelerating growth and reinventing industries...The acquisition of Samsung’s printer business allows us to deliver print innovation and create entirely new business opportunities with far better efficiency, security,...

Mainstream notebooks, laptops, and convertible devices have been significantly refined over the last few generations. The $500-$900 price range generally features laptops that are thin and light, built well, have decent battery life, and deliver solid multimedia experiences. Intel has a stranglehold on the CPUs and graphics in many of these mid-level systems, so PC makers seem to be emphasizing design differences lately. As important as performance is, you may well choose your next laptop because it converts into a mode or use case that fits your needs, rather than because of its technical specifications....

AMD has begun shipping its newly minted 7th Generation APUs known as "Bristol Ridge" to its hardware partners, the company announced this week. The new APUs will be integrated into systems built by several different OEM vendors, with HP and Lenovo getting first dibs, followed by others that will pair the processors with AMD's new AM4 platform. Bristol Ridge brings faster compute and graphics performance than previous generation APUs, with AMD claiming up to a 99 percent advantage in gaming graphics compared to Intel's Skylake chips. Graphics performance has traditionally been a strong suit of Intel's... Read more...
If you’ve been itchin’ to get your fingers on Hewlett-Packard’s brand new Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile flagship, you’re going to have to wait a little while longer. According to the product listing on the Microsoft Store, the shipping date for the Elite X3 has been delayed two weeks to September 16th. The Elite X3 is by far the most powerful and feature-packed Windows 10 Mobile device to be released to the market. It’s also the most expensive, ringing in at $699 by itself and $799 with the Desk Dock bundle. For example, Microsoft’s flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 810-powered Lumia 950 XL is priced at...

Let's say you're writing a message to that fine-looking lady or fella you swiped right on in Tinder. Suddenly, your friend starts peeking at your message over your shoulder. What do you do? HP has got your back. The company’s Sure View tech, which was originally developed by 3M, shields your laptop from nosy onlookers. Makoto Ishii, Vice President and General Manager of 3M’s Display Materials and Systems Division, stated, “Designed with more than 20 years of 3M optical films technology experience incorporated into the privacy screen, HP Sure View helps address the concern of protecting sensitive...

HP is breathing new life into its enthusiast Omen branding that hearkens back to the glory days of Voodoo PC, a former boutique system builder it acquired a decade ago. The newest item to sport the Omen logo—and one of the few in HP's history—is the Omen X, a diamond-shaped desktop that separates the main components into individual chambers for superior cooling. It's a unique looking desktop, though there's a purpose to its eye-catching layout. Traditional tower desktops consist of five exposed sides with the PC resting on its sixth side. But with the Omen X, the diamond-shaped configuration is... Read more...
Google may be lighting up the education market with Chromebooks, but that isn’t stopping Microsoft and its partners from introducing low-cost Windows-based devices in response. This time around, Hewlett-Packard is hoping to raise a few eyebrows with its revamped “Stream” PC lineup. The new Stream family consists of three models: two notebooks and one convertible. The first offering is the new Stream 11, which as its name implies features an 11.6-inch anti-glare display (1366x768), measures just 18mm thin, and weighs in at 2.57 pounds. It’s powered by an Intel Celeron N3060 processor paired with... Read more...
Remember the Elite X3 phablet HP revealed at Computex earlier this year? It looked like a promising handset, albeit one that's based on an operating system that's struggling to grab any kind of meaningful market share (Windows 10 Mobile). The stylish Elite X3 with its large size 5.96-inch QWHD AMOLED display seem poised to make a splash, only HP may be pricing it out of contention. For a brief period, the Elite X3 made an appearance on HP's online storefront in the U.S. where it was listed for—brace yourself—$799! Phew, it's a good thing HP didn't decide to charge a dollar more, because $800 seems... Read more...
The race to build the world's thinnest laptop hasn't always resulted in quality design innovation or utility over more full-figured machines. For example, comparatively, Apple's MacBook Air line looks a little plain-Jane versus some of the nicer thin and light laptops on the market these days, and certainly HP's Spectre line as well. HP recently saw fit to fully revamp its Spectre series across multiple sizes and formats, the latest of which is simply branded Spectre. The HP Spectre is actually a 13-inch machine, so you might refer to it as such (Spectre 13), if it helps you make the distinction.... Read more...
Hewlett-Packed announced its first OMEN gaming notebook back in November 2014, and now a year and a half later, the company is announcing four new additions to the family. For starters, HP is producing two new OMEN notebooks: one with a 15.6-inch display and another with a massive 17.3-inch display. No matter which form-factor you choose, you’ll be greeted with a standard Full HD screen resolution, or you can pony up for an optional 4K screen. Both laptops can be equipped with up to an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, 16GB of DDR4 SDRAM, and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M discrete GPU. Single-storage... Read more...
Hewlett-Packard is struttin’ its stuff in the ultrabook class with the brand new EliteBook 1030, which slots in nicely between the lower-end EliteBook Folio 1020 and the range-topping EliteBook 1040. In fact, the EliteBook 1030 is actually based on the 12.2-inch CNC-machined aluminum body of the EliteBook Folio 1020, but ditches the 12.5-inch display and thick side bezels in favor of a 13.3-inch edge-to-edge display. That display is covered in Corning Gorilla Glass for added protection and can be configured with an optional QHD+ (3200x1800) screen resolution — a 1920x1080 display is standard. Under...

By now you're probably burned out on smartphone and VR buzz. We don't blame you, Mobile World Congress week has been a whirlwind akin to only that sort of frenzied pace we experience at CES. Of course we agree, mobile computing isn't just about smartphones and other pocketable devices, even if what's coming is finally breaking the mold with modularity and even possibly someday complete end user repairability and upgradability. Well, even though HP joined the MWC 2016 party with a smartphone of their own (Windows 10 Mobile no less and with impressive scalability), they also decided to drop in a... Read more...
