HP has updated its pocket friendly printer sprout with a new model that is called HP Sprocket New Edition. While the printer manufactures scores no points on originality as far as the name is concerned, the updated version has a few features that make it easier to use.
The palm sized printer that allows users to print 2×3” photos can now be used by multiple people simultaneously through three simple steps- connect, select and print. The LED light on the Sprocket New Edition flashes a different color for prints from each phone to identify who is using the printer.
HP has also updated the look of the printer with the New Edition coming in a soft to touch feel and three new colors – Luna Pearl, Noir, and Blush. Printed pictures are now sharper with "more visible detail and deeper colors."
And finally, the printer now lets you see the print queue in augmented reality using the HP Sprocket App to know where your masterpiece stands in the line for being printed.
While there is no word from HP on pricing, the printer is expected to be available before the end of this year.
