HP announces two inexpensive 5×7 photo printers


Hewlett-Packard has two new inexpensive photo printers in the $149 Photosmart A630 (seen above) and the $99 Photosmart A530. Both printers are capable of printing out photos up to 5×7 inches in size, which should please those of you who find 4×6 photos to be pedestrian and boring now. The A630 also features a 4.8-inch touchscreen, which is pretty large for a compact printer.


The A530 (seen above) features a smaller, non-touch screen and appears to lack a few of the memory card options afforded by the A630. Both the A530 and A630 will be available next month.

HP also announced the Photosmart D5460, which features “a 1.5-inch color display, memory card slots, an auto-engaging photo tray and the ability to print photos and text directly onto CDs and DVDs.” The D5460 is available today for $99, although it’s not yet up on HP’s shopping website.
