PRESS RELEASE: ZINK Imaging announces the fourth ZINK-enabled™ product
The ZINK Technology provides all of ZINK Imaging’s partners, including Dell, with an ink-free technology platform from which they can launch a new generation of consumer electronics devices that are embeddable, mobile, simple to use, easy to maintain, and more respectful of the planet than any other printing alternative.
Powering these ZINK-enabled products is the award-winning ZINK Paper™. The patented ZINK Paper is an advanced composite material with embedded yellow, magenta, and cyan dye crystals. ZINK-enabled devices use heat to activate and colorize these crystals. The printing process is now radically simple.
The Wasabi is a pocket-sized mobile printer that produces borderless full color 2”x3” peel-and-stick ZINK Prints from a range of devices including digital cameras, camera phones, netbooks and laptop computers. Featuring a cutting edge design, the Wasabi represents the ultimate in mobility, enabling printing on-the-go, wherever you are – all in less than a minute. The product is available today in the U.S. and can be purchased at www.dell.com/wasabi.
“The Dell Wasabi is the fourth product available using the ZINK Technology, with many more on the way, including those capable of making larger prints,” said Wendy Caswell, President and CEO ZINK Imaging. “The Wasabi joins the growing family of Dell products, like the Inspiron Minis, that are redefining value, personalization, and customization for connected mobile lifestyles.”
