HP ePrint for webOS Preview 30

by Dieter Bohn Mon, 14 Feb 2011 6:04 am EST

HP's sole new mobile news at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is a preview of their ePrint app for webOS. Naturally, HP intends to integrate printing into as many apps as possible, but if you prefer to work directly from a print app, here's how it'll go:

Open the app and pick the thing you'd like to print - on this early preview the only one working so far was photos, but they have options for Files, Photos, launching the Camera, Web pages, Maps, and an intriguing Clipboard button that we imagine does just what you'd expect.

Once you've picked your document, it's time to pick a printer. In addition to your own saved printers, the app can search your company's intranet securely. It also can search of nearby printers by GPS, meaning you can print a file at your nearest FedEx Kinko's.

....and that's it so far. Hopefully it'll come backed into webOS 2.1 along with Exhibition. Yes, you already know that you should expect it in the coming months.

A few more photos after the break.

wow... It's good to know I'm not the only one up at the wee hours of the morning on precentral. You guys are awesome for delivering the news at all times of the day even if it is something fairly shoddy like printing lol. Naturally I was hoping for something a little bit more important from hp but I guess it's back to the waiting game and hoping that they tell us "legacy" device owners what they plan to do for us that's so special. Luckily, I think that in this case, webOS is worth waiting for.

Dieter & co. are in Barcelona, which is six hours ahead of ET.

Is it AZERTY instead of QWERTY only in Spain, or this is new Palm Pre 3 keyboard on all of the phones?

AZERTY is a common keyboard in western european countries. So, only in spain, france, and all others that use it. I doubt they'll put AZERTY on a US/UK phone.

Not completely true. The German keyboards are QWERTZ. I should know, I'm looking right at it :-P

I might have misunderstood your sentence. I dunno how the layout looks like in France, I only know it's different from the German.

Azerty is used only in France

I think it is a Pre 2? Hope I am wrong.......

I bought a ePrint HP printer in anticipation of being able to print from my Sprint Pre :/ At least I can email a pic to print.

Touch to Share and ePrint are great features - can't wait until June! ;-)

you bet. I am hopeful this will be a phenomenal year for webOS with HP getting right. One more new device in slab form to remain competitive.pleaseee.

In Spain we use QWERTY. Coutries that are french speakers uses AZERTY (France, Belgium and maybe Switzerland & Canada).

> It also can search of nearby printers by GPS

Oh that's great, but is it actually going to work? Or will it be bringing up printers from where I was two days ago? Will I need to load special apps I had to buy to try and "wake up" the GPS? Will I need to wait 5 minutes while I reboot my phone in hopes of it working correctly?

These prevalent GPS issues were NEVER properly addressed by HP/Palm (beyond finger-pointing) on existing hardware nor are we are now even getting the promised webOS update (that maybe could have fixed things).

It's OK though, when I get my new Android-based phone it will be the end of my neglected ongoing hardware issues with my Palm Pre+.

Yay sweet freedom! I can see the light on the horizon! All those apps I'm missing! Decent battery life! Thank you HP for helping me towards the light!

Sounds like you are talking about my Android "superphone" Samsung Epic, the #1 keyboard smartphone in the country last year, lol!

It ain't just the Pre that has GPS problems. But my Pre was more reliable than the Samsung for Bluetooth to my truck, and Wifi. So much so that I am switching medical programs so I can migrate back to WebOS which is way nicer to use day in and day out. Once the Pre3 with a bigger screen for my old (mid 40's) eyes is for sale, I am will be right back to WebOS, and a little less picky and critical when I am!

WOW, I any wait until I ccan try this on my pre plus! Oh wait... /stillpissed

Great only 12 more months till my contract runs out on SPrint Pre, then I can switch carriers to get a Pre to do this with... nah I think I will just keep printing on my Brother printer, ink is cheaper.

Humorous side note: It works in airplane mode (see pics) even? Wow that's even more impressive.

Seriously, bring it on.

wow! the first real productive app from hp for webos. now keep your fingers crossed they release another hundred of them.

sounds great..printing has never been my thing...but it would be cool to print something on someones printer from your phone...blow them away

sphere79:

have you tried activating aGPS (assisted GPS) on GPS preferences?

it woks well with me, 1 minute or 2 max to locate me even inside buildings and not-so-good weather

Yes, I've tried everything and I've been through several phones. Right now, I am paying an extra $10 a month for VZW navigator because it makes it work better, but still probably only 90% of the time. The rest I go back to trying to "wake" it or reboot. Maybe there's some trick or hack or patch I'm not using but I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO ANYWAY.

I know some people have 0 problems, and others are working great. It was my hope that webOS 2.0 might help the situation, but I guess I can scratch that.

Other than the OS itself this whole webOS experience has been a constant uphill battle, with the only light at the end being an OS update. At least I now know I'll eventually be free of this albatross known as HP/Palm soon enough - bring on the apps!

Great! When is it coming to my Sprint Pre?

I have been waiting for this ever since HP bought Palm. Now all I have to do is wait for a phone that I can get that will have this update and I will be all set lol.

I work for FedEx Office, and have been waiting for this to come out for some time. Right now only Blackberry has this. This shows the commitment HP has to the mobile professional. I am extremely excited to see more webOS phones in my center. I love what this platform and HP has to offer.

Glad to see this as well. ePrint is one of those things I didn't think I'd use much until I actually had it.

Seems great and I like the ideas ,luckily I have an HP printer. I still say they need to be more open then this. I always hate the idea of you have to purchase our product for this one feature to work. Though to some it may be worth it and HP being a descent brand there shouldn't be much issue.

I am still worried about the battery life on the new phones I have contacted the senator in my state on this issue. My best analogy on the topic would be gas mileage. If you only told people highway mileage and they went out and made stops and it ended up being 50/7 miles per gallon. We would have people lost in the middle of nowhere until their lifestyles changed based on these numbers. Now you wouldn't say anything if this was one sports-car for 100 people. Though this is being produced to 100's of thousands. If Toyota released this a vehicle like this there would be a law against this tomorrow. I suppose a company like HP will pretend it only released 100 devices as their solution.

As I have stated this is a bit more serious then I'd like to admit as it effects several situations in a negative way. I suppose we should release a Hollywood film with a killer attacking it victim as she just left the house and printed from her E-print application and she pulls out her HP device and the batteries at 2%.

I have an HP ePrinter. Works great from any smartphone or etc, NOW. Just email it whatever you want printed, and out it pops. Works from anywhere. Doesn't take a special app to do it. THAT is the beauty of ePrint. I think the app is just for people who don't know how to send a file already.

Of course it is a temperamental beast - if you ignore it more than a few days, a Blue Screen of Death pops up on it's little screen, lol!

Which model ePrinter would you recommend?

While I was looking at Nokia devices, I saw HP iPrint integrated in to the device. Now I'm starting to see it you people who are really trying to over hype something. Not like you own the company or really think its great.

Truly the largest bunch of inconsiderate consumers I have ever met. I know HP will make this device better and were glad to see E-print.

But as for business, It might be for complicated on the Nokia's E series but I bet it likely prints with flexibility likely on a wide range of printers. Like I said before ,I hope that guy they hired from Nokia to Palm shows up and HP decides to really compete.

Of course the devices are fun but HP leans towards the business side and hopefully, simple things such as Bluetooth Integration file transfer, as well as file converting, real player, Dolby surround sounds, Ovi store, Ovi 3D maps. This really shows how bad it is to even mention these simple little features individually.

If it doesn't work on one of these devices you know somethings wrong. Apple is close but why would you need to go else where they make it for you.

Again I purchased this item to support a phone that I thought would get better.

I have to do this: This is Nokia's E73 business phone "mode" its 29.99 with a 2 year contract. This is basically on every phone and only gets better with advanced hardware.
All that little stuff, voice memos as an application, and all the little non UI apps, etc... standards at a blink of an eye. What's worse is I don't believe some of whats there was mean't to be so lowly assembled on one of the most elegant and sophisticated devices. This is called hoarding natural company progress. Again most of what is being placed on these devices is secondary just like android and apple has trinket applications they can exist but major superior applications must exist as well including normal pricing of applications and regulations of quality and their protocol of applications on the market.
