    Canon Pixma ink jet evolution surprise
    Within weeks of HP
    seemingly throwing in the towel to rival single colour ink tanks and
    permanent print heads, Canon today introduces a new range of single-use
    integrated multi-colour ink cartridges with integrated print head.
    They look like Lexmark or HP ink cartridges but these are Canon’s new weapons for ink jet printer domination
    Has the ink jet printer industry gone mad? Last month HP revealed its
    latest ink jet print technology that adopts the policy of its key
    rivals, Canon and Epson, of using single colour ink tanks and a
    separate, permanent, print head. This was a major departure for HP,
    which had, until then, vigorously defended its policy of producing
    multi-colour ink cartridges with built in print heads meant for single
    use. But today, Canon, THE advocate of single ink tanks in consumer ink
    jet printer, has an ink jet cartridge strategy that can only be
    described as HP’s new initiative in complete reverse.

    Unlike HP and Lexmark, Canon’s new ink cartridges are loaded on the left hand side of the printer.
    So here we have two major ink jet printer manufacturers who have spend
    the last five years rubbishing each other’s choice of ink jet tank and
    print head configuration and, overnight, they have forgotten the past
    and, basically, adopted each other’s former strategies.
    Canon says the adoption of ink cartridges with integrated print heads
    is fundamental to its goal of becoming the No.1 ink jet printer and
    all-in-one printer/scanner/copier manufacturer. This type of cartridge
    enables Canon to strengthen its budget printer line in a sector where
    HP and Lexmark have become very strong using such cartridges. However,
    it doesn’t mark the abandonment of single colour ink tanks in its
    medium and high-end printers.
    Indeed, Canon has taken its rivals cartridge designs and improved on
    them by widening the print head coverage with more nozzles to enable
    faster printing and reducing the ink drop volume via its FINE print
    head technology, for improved print quality.
    Although it does seem that HP and Canon are a bit loopy in copying each
    other’s printer configurations, it’s not that silly when you think
    about it. Canon wants to compete with HP in the budget end of the
    market, so it has decided that if they can’t beat’em with their own
    ink/head configurations, they might as well join them. And for HP, it’s
    the same, but in reverse – HP wants a bigger slice of the mid and
    high-end photo ink jet printer sector, where Canon and Epson are strong
    with their single ink tank and fixed print head configurations.
    Now all we need is for Epson to come up with Canon-style transparent ink tanks…
