HP Announces CES Awards
With the 2007 CES now just a memory, HP (NYSE HPQ) has released a lengthy list of products that brought home awards from the Las Vegas show. The printers and one scanner included in the release are "below the fold", with the Photosmart A716 photo printer (pictured above) the big winner as a 2006 PC Magazine product of the year (but announced at the show) as well as a winner of a Storage Visions Conference Award. Other mentions include the Photosmart Pro B9180 photo printer and Photosmart D7360 printer (for the CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards, as Digital Imaging honorees). The scanner mentioned is the G4050, which was a finalist in the CNET People's Choice awards. Not to be forgotten is the HP photo kiosk, HP Photosmart Studio a "Retail Resources Best of Innovations Winner" among the CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards.
Seems the biggest overall winner for HP (though a bit subjective) is the "kitchen computer" I blogged about from the show. The HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC's awards include Yahoo's prestigious "last gadget standing" award.
