HP has announced the DeskJet 3700, which it claims is the smallest consumer all-in-one inkjet printer ever made. It goes on sale later in June for the price of $69.99.

The HP DeskJet 3700 is supposed to be half the size of other inkjet all-in-one-printers. It can be accessed by the company's mobile apps on Android, iOS and Windows, and with its Wi-Fi Direct feature, people can print from their smartphones and tablets without connecting to a home network.

Consumers can print, share and design custom photos from Facebook, Instagram and Flickr or directly from a phone's camera roll with the free HP Social Media Snapshots application. HP also offers fun 4x5 sticky photo paper tailored just for the Social Media Snapshots app and perfect for decorating a bedroom, locker or sharing with family and friends. Using HP Printbot, Facebook Messenger users can print content effortlessly from a Facebook Messenger conversation. In addition to easily printing photos and documents, the bot allows users to add printers, print from the printer's history, and order replacement supplies.

The printer will come in a number of different colors, such as Electric Blue to Sea Grass Green and Stone.

  • I need one, uk?
  • I wonder if they sell mobile printers? Posted via Surface Pro 4 or Microsoft Halo Phone
  • I've the bigger one already... Send that to Africa and buy this lol. When in UK pls?
  • Does this have scanning, copying, or faxing capability? If not, it's not exactly an all-in-one, but rather what I'd just consider a printer. And if this device does have a scanner, where is it?
  • Scanning and copying, yes. I don't think so for faxing. But HP does have a neat Windows 10 and Mobile app that works with this printer. The scanner is a unique creation: it's not a flatbed, but it's the roller. I've seen it work, personally, as I was briefed on this device a few weeks ago with HP. You feed it in like a fax machine and it scans photos, documents, etc.
  • Awesome, so now I'm very curious about where the scanner is hidden in this thing. I have a much bigger Officejet Pro 8500 that has served me well over the last few years, but this might be a useful device for people with more limited scanning and printing needs than my own. I agree about the HP Scan and Capture app being pretty nifty (and touch friendly), although the interface is a little unintuitive. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Yeah, even I don't have a printer anymore so when I saw this I was interested. I can contact HP to have them send me one, may be fun for a review as I have been out of the printer game for a long time. But yeah, definitely a scanner built in there, which is neat.
  • Please can we get a review of the unit @Daniel_Rubino? Posted via Surface Pro 4 or Microsoft Halo Phone
  • If I can't scan my butt, it is useless to me. Sent from 5 Sim Lane, in Neighborhood 1.
  • Oh is it similar to the roller scanners on Lexmark printers in 2000-2005? Posted via Surface Pro 4 or Microsoft Halo Phone
  • I realize that the selling point here is size but I'm curious if that matters much when compared against a device like the HP Envy 5540 which Amazon is selling for $75 and HP themselves sell for $79.  Has a touchscreen LCD too (can't tell if the 3700 has one).  Just wonder if HP's full force push back into printing since separating the two companies has created more printers than are really necessary.  Wasn't that what got their printer division in trouble in the first place years ago?  Epson and Brother came in and underpriced them in every category and with too many options, HP printing kinda floundered.
  • Exactly and since Brother is especially creating and selling printers for many different use-cases, it makes consumers not want a HP / Lexmark / Packard Bell printer anymore Posted via Surface Pro 4 or Microsoft Halo Phone
  • not expensive. Bit the paper and cartridge refills will most likely cost a fortune.
  • Cartridge refills definitely, replacement black and color will cost more then trashing the printer and buying another.
  • Imagine only paying $2.99 for printing 50 sheets or less per month....$4.99 for the 100 sheet plan and $9.99 for 300! Doesn't matter if it it full color or black and white.
    You just need a WiFi connection.
    (Btw if you are a student living in on campus housing this will not work)
    This printer is Instant Ink eligible. Look it up, here are some reviews:
  • Do you think that this belongs on this list of best inkjet printers?
