Printer with WiFi Hotspot - Good Idea?

I'm wondering if a printer with a wireless module which lets it double up as a wireless hotspot is a good idea or not. Because HP's just launched a machine that prints, scans, copies and even acts as your local WiFi hotspot for only Rs. 18300. The LaserJet printer might attract a few customer in India and China where the machine's been launched today.

Do you think mixing printer with wireless-hotspot is an innovative idea?
it is a good idea...
moreover wi-fi in SD card is an old product, these other products have to "get connected" soon..

Wifi enabled printers are generally a good idea and pretty useful. But being a hotspot as well perhaps not so.. I'd prefer to have a wifi hotspot running on reliable network hardware rather than an addon to something else.
