HP unveils its ultra sleek HP Photosmart 245 mini printer for producing
10x15cm borderless colour and true black & white, greyscale photos instantly.
With stacks of memory cards slots and the option to edit and print video stills
as well as photos without a PC or Mac, the new HP photo printer squeezes a lot
into a neat little package.
By incorporating Compact Flash, Memory Stick, MultiMedia, Secure Digital, Smart
Media and xD-Picture Cards slots, the HP Photosmart 245 printer offers flexible
photo printing no matter what brand of digital camera is used. Once downloaded,
images can be previewed and reviewed on the HP Photosmart 245's 4.6cm icon-based
colour LCD screen. Then if required, the one-touch buttons can be used to select
the photo size and to change the light contrast and colour before printing.
In addition to all of this, users can even capture and print video frames or
experiment with their photos by positioning four images on a single 10x15cm
"We are placing consumers' digital imaging needs at the centre of our
'enjoy more' strategy", says John Duckworth, HP Printer Category manager.
"This means that they have access to the latest HP imaging technology through
simple, intuitive interfaces, all at a compelling price."
Using HP's PhotoREt III precision technology, or up to 4800x1200 optimised
dpi, when printing on premium photo papers, the photo-quality, detail and colour
of the HP Photosmart 245 printer is certain to impress any digital imaging enthusiast.
In addition, the HP Photosmart 245 prints professional-looking borderless 10x15cm
prints by using HP 10x15cm photo papers with tear-off tab.
