HP launches wireless, touch-screen printers

New Delhi: Hewlett Packard (HP) on Thursday launched its range of touch-screen and wireless printers ‘HP Touchsmart series’ priced at Rs6,000 onwards.

The company, which has about 75% market share in the All-in-One (AIO) category in India is looking at consolidating its position further.

The AIO category includes a combination of printer, copier and scanner.

“We have a 75% market share in the AIO category and would look at building this further," Aggarwal said.

HP vice president (Consumer Go-To-Market and Inkjet and Web Solutions - IPG Asia Pacific and Japan) Christoph Schell said India accounted for about 15% revenues of the division in the region.

“India is an important market for us. In the Apac region it accounts for about 15% of the revenues of the Imaging and Printing Group and we want to increase this further," Schell said.
