Lexmark inkjet with burner
Lexmark today introduced the 4x6-inch inkjet photo printer, featuring "the industry's first-ever" built-in CD photo burner. The company says that users can easily transfer images from their camera cards to CDs using the built-in CD burner and print photo-quality prints--using the Lexmark 4x6 inch photo printing kit--for as little as 29 cents. "The Lexmark P450 brings more photo processing functions to the home. People can now save and organize their digital photos on CD, print from a cell phone, view their photos on a television and much more." The stand-alone Lexmark P450 offers optional Bluetooth technology for direct printing; viewing/editing using the 2.4-inch color LCD screen; edit tools (crop, rotate, color fix and red-eye removal) as well as photo effects (sepia and antique gray); and direct printing from digital cameras via its PictBridge port; however, Lexmark says the printer is not compatible with direct printing from PCs or Macs. The standalone inkjet printer will ship in October for $200.
