MapQuest, HP Partner On Web-enabled Printers

Denver-based MapQuest, the online mapping site, said yesterday afternoon that it has inked a new partnership with HP. MapQuest said the partnership allows users of HP's new web-enabled priners, to directly print maps and do local searches from those devices. The new HP devices allow users to pull up Internet information--including MapQuest maps--directly from the front screen of those printers, without using a PC.
