The entire idea behind the new printers is simple. Instead of installing special applications to your smartphone to print files, all you need to do is email the file to their printer. It sounds incredibly novel, but companies such as Google believe they have a chance and have partnered with HP to allow for easy printing of Google Docs and Calendar. Other companies will support the new printers with a store known as the ePrintCenter.

The printers are expected to range in price from $99 to $400 and will be fitted with touchscreen panels.
