Kodak announces a line of multifunction inkjets that use low-cost pigment inks and porous paper.
After three years of top secret development, Kodak today unveiled a new photo printing system designed to make high-volume and quality home printing affordable and simple, according to the company.
Kodak introduced three printers ranging from $149.99 to $299.99 and a revolutionary set of low-cost inks with three basic paper types available in both glossy and matte finishes. The first two printers in the system are expected to be available in March with the fax-capable model available in May.
The new printers are compatible with Mac OS X v10.4.8 and later, and all versions of Windows XP. While they are not yet Vista certified, Kodak claims they are compatible with the new Windows operating system and will eventually be certified as well.
In addition to the press release of the announcement and individual press releases for each printer, our coverage includes a special Pasini Report with Susan H. Tousi, Kodak research and development director for inkjet products.
