Brother ships new printers

Brother has launched its next generation of inkjet printers, with printing, copying, scanning and faxing capabilities on all three new models. Its flagship MFC-790CW also includes a 4.2-inch touch screen and wireless networking. The 790 model includes 802.11 b/g wireless network support for printing without wires and supporting multiple PCs at once, direct printing from media cards and through its PictBridge interface and a 15-page automatic document feeder. It also has front-loading inks, a telephone handset with a digital answering machine built in and prints at a 33 page per minute rate.

The other two printers in the new line are the MFC-490CW and MFC-290C. The 290 model features PictBridge support, 30 pages per minute printing, built-in media card slots and fax capabilities. The 490 model adds a 3.3-inch touch screen, 33 pages per minute print-rate and wireless network support.

The three models are shipping today, with the MFC-290C listing for $100, the MFC-490CW at $130 and the flagship MFC-790CW selling at $180. All feature a one-year express-exchange limited warranty.
