Kodak Monday announced two new multifunction devices, the EPS 7 and EPS 9 All-in-Ones. Both products feature a colour ink-jet printer, a colour scanner, and a colour copier.
The EPS 7 (US$200) has a six-colour printer that uses pigment inks encased in two cartridges, one black cartridge and one cartridge with five different ink colours. The printer is rated at 32 pages per minute (ppm) for black printing, and 30 ppm for colour (Kodak says the speed rating are based on using the fastest document print mode). The EPS 7 features a 3-inch colour LCD, memory card slots, and USB ports for direct printing from a digital camera. Network connectivity includes Wi-Fi and Ethernet. An automatic duplexer for double-sided printing is included.
The EPS 9 ($300) has the same print engine as the EPS 7. The EPS 9 has fax and an automatic document feeder. The device also uses a 10-inch touchpanel, with blue-illuminated buttons and a 3-inch colour LCD.
Replacement ink cartridges for both devices are priced at $10 for black, $15 for a five-colour cartridge.
