Yes, the hp bluetooth printer supports wireless printing in a way entirely different from WiFi printing to a wireless printer.
Wireless technology came into focus because printers and computers were in the past stationary and connected with meters of cables. Not only were these eye sores but inconvenient to say the least. Convenience was the driving consideration why wireless technology developed, without it all should still be glued to offices and monitors.
Before WiFi became a by-word, bluetooth was the reliable way to do wireless printing. Those with laptops, mobile devices relied heavily on the convenience provided by bluetooth. It actually freed users of the tyranny of cables, with bluetooth, users can use their devices anywhere they wish (bedroom, living rooms and even beside the pool), but not more than 30 meters away.
Distance is the only drawback, since 30 meters is the maximum to allow bluetooth to communicate conveniently. Other than that bluetooth can be relied upon for the printing of snaps taken by smartphones directly without the need of a computer. That is how versatile bluetooth technology is, surpassed only when WiFi came into mainstream use.
While bluetooth has limited range, WiFi (wireless fidelity) is indefinite, there is no limit because it can communicate to compliant devices even halfway around the globe. Internet becomes unstoppable because it operates using WiFi or radio waves beamed into revolving satellites, with receivers located anywhere around the globe.
However, bluetooth is still not a spent technology, because many still have practical uses of the technology. Communication is direct between mobile devices loaded with bluetooth, there is no need to enter a wireless network to communicate. The process of communication is really simple, bluetooth to bluetooth is just like talking by phone.
Out of this special application, hp continues to produce the hp bluetooth printer and has always propagated ways to encourage printing to a wireless printer via this technology
