Lexmark myTouch printers
Lexmark has announced a new line of inkjet printers, with eight all-in-one devices to be released on September 1. The printers each integrate 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreens for "as needed" navigation. Graphical icons provide quick access to basic print, copy and scan functions. The printers also utilize Lexmark's new Vizix print technology, featuring separate ink tanks to improve printing speed and printing precision. The line boasts Wireless-N connectivity for customers needing a longer range and faster file-transfer rates.
SmartSolutions technology enables one-touch customizations for tasks such as e-mail or RSS feeds, while scanning a business card will automatically upload contact information to an address book application. The printers can also be set to a new Eco Mode which is designed to save paper and energy by automating two-sided printing, faxing and copying.
The line of printers will be released later this year on September 1 and will cost between $200 and $400. Lexmark will showcase the new lineup of printers at the Lexmark securities analyst open house on Tuesday September 8th.
