HP to sell portable printer in Japanese market for the first time in 10 years, bringing back some lost sales in the country.
The company said the cvs printer and the printer-like HP tango can be ordered through the online portal for $50.
The move comes amid a resurgence in demand for portable computers, and an expansion of the Japanese market that has been hit hard by the economic crisis.
The announcement comes as Japan struggles to regain some of the competitiveness it lost in the wake of the financial crisis.
It’s a market that is increasingly reliant on the Internet, and consumers are increasingly willing to shell out for higher-quality products.
The cvs and tango printers can also be used to scan documents or files, and they will work with all of HP’s digital products, including PCs, tablets and phones.HP said in a statement that the move is aimed at helping consumers save money and improve their online shopping experience.
The product line is a collaboration with the Japanese mobile technology company Sharp.
