It wouldn’t be CES without a printer announcement from Canon so it was no shock to hear that Canon unveiled five new Pixma printers designed with the small office, home office (SOHO) market in mind the day before CES 2011 officially opens its doors.
The five new Pixma printers including four new multi-function inkjet printers – the MX882, MX420, MX410 and MX360 – and one single function wide format inkjet printer, the IX6520.
The new multi-function printers all offer Canon’s Full HD Movie Print and a bevy of office features perfect for the SOHO market. The Pixma MX882, MX420, MX410 and IX6520 will all feature Canon’s new sleek black design as well.
The flagship Pixma MX882 Office All-in-One is a 4-in-1 model featuring automatic double sided printing, copying, scanning and faxing as well as a built-in 35-sheet ADF, 3-inch LED with a dual function control panel, a five ink tank system, two way paper feeding, a built-in memory card reader and three connection options (Wi-FI, USB or Ethernet) for $199.99.
The Pixma MX882 also comes with an upgraded version of Canon’s Easy WebPrint that is compatible with both Mac’s and PC’s. Any new Pixma with wireless connectivity can also download a free iPhone and Android wireless printing application.
The Pixma MX420 is also a 4-in-one model featuring print, scan, copy and fax capabilities with a 30-page ADF, a rear tray, built-in memory card reader, a dual ink tank system and three connection options (Wi-FI, USB or Ethernet) for $149.99.

However, the Pixma MX360 features the familiar gray design and lacks wireless connectivity.
The Pixma iX6520 is a new wide format inkjet addition to the Canon Office lineup, coming in $200 less than the Pixma iX7000 wide format inkjet, $199.99 to $399.99.
