Canon announced the arrival of four new Pixma printers this morning, only one day before CES 2010 kicks off.
The lineup includes three new office all-in-ones (AIOs) – Pixma MX870, Pixma MX350, Pixma MX340 – as well as a entry level single function photo printer, the Pixma iP2702.
All three office AIOs feature Canon’s Share Technology with the new Auto Document Fix and Auto Photo Fix II. Auto Document Fix will allow the scanner to sharpen and darken text, smooth images, and remove background noise.
The flagship Pixma MX870 Wireless Office AIO offers print, scan, copy and fax capabilities as well as print speeds as fast as 9.4 ipm in black, auto duplexing, a 2.5 inch LCD with Canon’s Easy Scroll Wheel, a 35-sheet ADF, two way paper feed, and a set of five individual ink cartridges including a pigment black cartridge.
The Pixma MX350 Wireless Office AIO features Canon’s Easy Scroll Wheel with a 2.5 inch LCD, built-in card reader with USB flash drive compatibility, multiple scan-to options, built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet connectivity, and a set of two cartridges including a tri-color cartridge.
The base level Pixma MX340 Wireless Office AIO also offers built-in Wi-Fi along with a 30-sheet ADF, single line text screen, and two ink cartridges (black and tri-color).
The Pixma MX870, Pixma MX350, and Pixma MX340 Office All-in-Ones have an estimated retail price of $199, $149, and $99, respectively.
Canon will also be releasing the Pixma iP2702 single function inkjet printer. The Pixma iP2702 will be replacing the popular Pixma iP2600 Photo inkjet with a sleek, compact matte black exterior, 4×6 prints in as little as 55 seconds, Chromalife ink system, Auto Photo Fix II, and the latest addition of Canon’s Easy-WebPrint EX.
All four printers are expected to be available for purchase in late February or early March. Stay tuned for more information, including hands-on photos, when the staff from PrinterComparison.com arrives at CES 2010!
