Dell unveiled the latest addition to its imaging lineup this morning with the release of seven new configurations and an upgrade to an existing model.

There are four new monochrome devices targeted at the entry level customers – the single function B1160, B1160w, B1260dn and the multifunction B1265dnf – as well as three new color lasers designed for advance class customers (medium to large businesses)- the single function C3760n, the C3760dn and the multifunction C3765dnf.

Dell also upgraded the firmware on the 2355dn and officially announced their free new mobile print application, Dell Mobile Print.

The B1160 and B1160w are the first two ultra compact monochrome laser printers in the $100 price range for Dell ($99 and $119, respectively). These new printers offer print speeds up to 21 ppm, a monthly duty cycle up to 10,000 pages, lifetime fuser and offer two levels of replacement cartridges.

Other features include: print speeds up to 29 ppm, a monthly duty cycle up to 20,000 pages, lifetime fuser, 533 MHz processor with 64 MB of memory standard, built-in network connectivity, Dell Mobile Print support, a 250-sheet paper tray and a 10-sheet bypass tray. The B1260dn will be replacing the Dell 1130n and 2230d in Dell’s product lineup.

The 4-in-1 B1265dnf offers the same print engine as the B1260dn but features print, scan, copy and fax functionality as well as a 40-sheet automatic document feeder, additional memory standard (128 MB) and an extended control panel for $249.

The single function C3760n and C3760dn kick it up a notch with class leading cost per page (10 cent for color, 1.5 cents for black), print speeds up to 36 ppm, a monthly duty cycle up to 80,000 pages, automatic duplexing, built-in networking and advanced security features.
