"You can actually have the printer without the computer and it works as long as there is an internet connection. Exactly why anyone would have an Internet connection without a computer is kind of baffling, but that’s what you can use."
The above statement shows just how out of tune the writer is. The whole idea behind this printer is it's ability to make use of the cloud. That is where technology is going folks. The printer makes perfect sense because from any mobile device - cellphone, tablets, labtop etc....you will be able to print documents that are on the cloud...duh!
You will hear more about this once the PalmPad comes out. If you missed it, Jon Rubinstein is now on Amazon's board of directors. This tells me that HP and Amazon will be working closely with one another. Amazon, the content provider (books, music, movies), while HP will create the means to access those content through their products - PalmPad, cellphones, PCs, Labtops.
BTW, I've read somewhere that WebOS will support LTE. I wonder if the PalmPad's hardware will as well? If it does, it will certainly have one leg up over the iPad.
