HP has announced new business products and services including PCs, an inkjet all-in-one, and a help desk service for larger customers.

HP has a habit of announcing new products en masse at regional events. Announcements made at the Asia Pacific and Japan leg of the HP World Forum followed that pattern.

That habit probably means few of the products and services get as much attention as they would if they were drip-fed over a number of weeks, but that's HP's problem.

iTWire has previously outlined the consumer announcements and now it's the turn of the company's business-focused divisions.

On the PC side, there are new HP Pro and HP Elite series models, including all-in-one designs with optional touchscreens and NFC capability.

The company's business inkjet printer range has been expanded with the Officejet 7610 (pictured), an networkable all-in-one that handles paper up to 13x19in (33x48cm).

Other announcements include the use of HP mobile devices to remotely view graphics from Z series workstations, a 'retail jacket' for the ElitePad designed for in-store use, integration of ePrint Enterprise with Good Technology for secure printing from mobile devices, and enhancements to the Exstream customer communications management software.

As for services, HP announced a pay-by-the-page plan for certain business printers and all-in-ones, and Priority Services (help desk and IT resource performance services for larger customers.

Pricing and availability of the new products and services were not included in the announcement.
