Hewlett-Packard Co. has beefed up its line of mobile inkjet printers with the launch of the DeskJet 350 today. The company says the printer has been tested extensively for shock, drops and climactic extremes. The DeskJet 350 is the only mobile printer in the industry to feature ink cartridges that can withstand extreme temperature and altitude changes without leaking, according to H.P. The printer's high-volume ink cartridges can generate up to 485 pages of black text and 155 pages in color.

The DeskJet 350 produces up to 5 pages per minute in black and 2 PPM in color. Black text printing is at 600 x 600 DPI resolution and color images at 600 x 300 DPI. The printer uses ColorSmart II technology to optimize image color. Other features include:

  • A Built-in NiMH battery that charges in one hour and 40 minutes, with no memory effect. It can power the printing of 130 pages of black text in normal mode.
  • An IrDA-compliant infrared adapter is available for wireless use.
  • A 30-page sheet feeder.
  • Support for a variety of media, including transparencies, labels, glossy brochures and flyer papers.

The printer is supported on the Mac and ships for $269 in its base configuration. A model with the infrared adapter and NiMH battery sells for $299. For more information, visit http//www.hp.com.
