Canon’s new PIXMA MP960 AIO (All-In-One) has a unique 7-color Chroma Life 100 ink system and the ability to print up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi on a variety of papers. It combines an easy-scroll wheel user interface with a 3.5-inch HD TFT screen.
“The Canon PIXMA MP960 model combines all of the best features from our PIXMA line of high quality printers and all-in-one devices, and is truly the ultimate home photo kiosk,” said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager at Canon U.S.A., Inc.
The MP960’s 3,584-nozzle print head ejects drops as tiny as one picoliter and can print a borderless 4 x 6-inch photo lab-quality print in about 35 seconds. The AIO’s speed is 30 pages per minute for black and white documents and up to 22 pages per minute for color. There are two paper trays, one for plain paper and one for photo paper, so you won’t have to switch back and forth. The MP960 is available at an MSRP of $399.99.
It looks like HP is interested in joining rather exclusive club of companies, including Apple and Dell, that offer a 30-inch LCD flat panel display. For connectivity, the monitor, dubbed the LP3065, requires a DVD-D dual link graphics card, with support of up to 2560 by 1600 resolution. The stand allows for 178 x 178 degree viewing angles and possesses 3 additional DVD inputs and HDCP content protection. The display also possesses a unique, new CCFL back-light.
Most surprising, however, is HP’s choice of color and design. The monitor is designed to be sleek, with emphasis on the black bezel, stand, and screen (when turned off). The ship date of the LP3065 is projected to be November 1, for a hefty sum of $1999.
