Cheers to HP - Officejet Pro X Series now available, and recognized by Guinness Book of World Records

Today, February 11, 2013, HP has announced worldwide release of the Officejet Pro X series, their printers which use page-wide array inkjet printing to get up to 70ppm print speeds. Along with the announcement, HP is celebrating the 25 year anniversary of the HP Deskjet printer, and also its place in the Guiness Book of World Records as holder of the "fastest desktop printer" title. (See the Guinness Records site for more details.) The printer is positioned as a fast and economical color laser replacement for Small and Medium Business (SMB) customers.

While the printer itself is very impressive (I got an up-close look last Fall), I have to say I am equally impressed with HP's pursuit of the "World Record" angle - seems like the return clever and imaginative HP I have known for so long! And in the "small world" department, one of my most recent "up close" visits with HP was in Fall 2011, when an influencer event at the company's Dublin-based European headquarters, and included an evening at the famed Guinness brewery.
