Canon has launched the PIXMA iP100 Mobile Printer in the US market. The new printer is space saving, portable and can be easily carried with a laptop.
The PIXMA iP100 printer features a color resolution of a maximum 9600 x 2400 dpi. Further, the printer will be equipped with two black inks, one a pigment-based black ink that delivers laser-like sharp text and another for printing rich photos.
In addition, the PIXMA iP100 printer boasts Auto Image Fix technology that automatically analyzes and categorizes the scenes in photographs and optimizes print output for each individual scene in accordance with the scene type, such as Portrait, Scenery, Snapshot, etc, when using it with a laptop.
The new printer offers speeds of up to 20 pages-per-minute (ppm) for black and up to 14 ppm for color. The PictBridge port delivers an option to print high-quality photographs from a compatible digital camera or DV camcorder without requiring a computer. Photo-lab quality prints come in 4-x 6 inch, 4-x 8 inch, 5-x 7 inch, 8-x 10 inch, and letter size photos.
“There has never been a greater need for mobile technology than now. Being able to complete your job during any situation and have it look better than your competition is a very real issue,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager of the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon US. “Canon raises the bar in meeting this need with the new PIXMA iP100 Mobile Printer.”
Besides, users also have an option to print wirelessly from the built-in IrDA port or from select Bluetooth-enabled cell phones and computers with the new optional user installable Bluetooth Unit BU-304.
