After releasing its first Wi-Fi digital camera, Kodak has also debuted three new printers of which two are equipped with Wi-Fi functionality. The company says these printers will be able to print out digital photographs for as little as 29 cents per print.
The universal KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 500 (US$249), debuting with the world’s largest (3.5-inch) LCD screen on a snapshot printer, which is intended for owners of virtually any brand of digital camera and recent camera phones;
The KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock Plus Series 3 (US$179), designed for use with KODAK EASYSHARE and IMAGELINK print system enabled digital cameras, which delivers automated KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology to home printing for the first time;
The universal KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 300 (US$119), which produces real KODAK pictures directly from a computer or PICTBRIDGE enabled camera.
The new products include:
Both the KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 500 and Printer Dock Plus Series 3 allow for optional wireless printing via Wi-Fi technology — an industry first for dedicated snapshot printers.
In addition, people can now inexpensively print waterproof, durable, stain-resistant KODAK pictures at home for as low as 29 cents each with new 160-count paper-and-ink refill packs (US$46.99).
These products will begin reaching retail stores by October, complementing the existing EASYSHARE Printer Dock Series 3 (US$149), as well as multiple KODAK EASYSHARE Digital Photo Solutions packages that combine digital cameras, printer docks, and software.
