The HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart leaves nothing to be desired. It is the first printer that allows you to connect to the internet. The machine also boasts a 4.33" touch screen that can easily be customized to include all of your favorite apps. The touchscreen on this machine is as responsive as most touch screen phones and doesn't take much getting used to, actually when you do start using it you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. With a few taps it will get you whatever you need.

There is also Bluetooth connectivity so you can directly print from a cell phone. I tested out the image quality while at the #hpwebprinter event and surprisingly it's amazing even from a measly 2 megapixel camera. It enlarged my picture from a 2.5" screen to a 8.5" by 11" piece of paper and I couldn't see any pixilation. It made my jaw drop!

Along with the neat hardware features, the software on this machine was amazing. The apps were extremely intuitive and worked hand in hand. Since this is the first home printer that can do all of these things, most apps are still being worked on but they are still great, they did what they said and were supposed to do, so really what can you complain about?

The price tag is a bit heavy at $399 but it is definitely worth every penny!

That sounds like a pretty awesome printer. I've never heard of ones that let you print directly from your cell phone.

HP printers are pretty cool, my last 2 or 3 printers have been from HP and have lasted many years with out problem.

If you have a wireless HP printer and an iPhone then there is an app in the iPhone store to enable you print directly from the phone. Its pretty cool to take picture from the phone and send it to the printer without having to connect up via itunes.

My only moan is the cost of ink. Buying two ink cartridges is almost the cost of a new printer
