Santa didn't bring you these? Here's another shot

Otago Daily Times technology editor Dene Mackenzie has sourced the king of printers and a snazzy new cellphone to give away to two lucky Summer Times readers.

HP Photosmart e-All-In-OneShop, smile, print!

The HP Photosmart e-All-In-One 7520 is valued at $349. The e-All-in-One will help keep the family sorted this holiday season. You will be able to print off those Christmas gift vouchers or photos, take a scan of your passport before you head off on holiday, copy those driving directions so you can find the crib and send faxes, but with the HP Photosmart 7520, you will also be able to do so much more.

The HP Photosmart 7520 allows you to access web content via a colour touch screen so you will not even have to be connected to a laptop to print out a map or a Sudoku puzzle to do over breakfast! It also features wireless direct printing, allowing you to print without the need of an internet network or router, and HP ePrint, which allows you to print from your smartphone or tablet from virtually anywhere.

The e-All-in-One printer addresses the needs of everyone in the family, from printing vivid, lab-quality photos to duplex printing of everyday documents. HP Scheduled Delivery print apps also allow families to choose the content they want to access directly from the printer, including maps, news, puzzles, education content and more. Everyone will be smiling if this is under the tree! Of all the functions, which one would you use the most?

Answers to with Summer Times Print in subject line and include name, address, phone number and email. (HP will courier the printer to the winner.)

HTC Windows Phone
