Mobile all-in-one stands out among trio of new HP printers

HP unveiled three new printers today, the most interesting of which is an incremental update to its mobile printer, the HP Officejet 150 Mobile.

HP has taken the wraps off three new consumer printers, including an update to last year's mobile all-in-one.

The HP Officejet 150 Mobile is a refresh to the HP Officejet Mobile 100, a useful accessory that earned a 7.5/10 CNET Editors' rating back in 2011 for its flexible connectivity options, Bluetooth accessibility, and rechargeable battery. This time around, HP updates the mobile inkjet sidekick with quick scanning and copying directly to a compatible USB drive or memory card.

The printer's physical composition retains the same general clam shell design of its predecessor but adds a 2.36-inch touch screen for managing image outputting tasks. The screen also acts as a home center for changing scan destinations from the PCs, to e-mails, to a USB drive or memory card. Finally, a lithium ion rechargeable battery on the back gives enough juice to last about 500 pages on a full charge.

The HP OfficeJet Mobile 150 will hit stores in June for $400.

In addition to the Mobile 150, HP also unveiled the HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One (June, $129) and the HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dn ($500).
