    LEXMARK INKJET GETS I-PHONE MAKEOVER
    Online apps downloadable straight to touchscreen.
    Lexmark’s
    latest eight inkjet multi-function devices (MFDs) for the small and
    medium business market bring colourful, downloadable, one-touch
    applications that resemble those on Apple’s iPhone.The top three
    devices sport a 4.3-inch touchscreen which can download applications
    from an online application store run by the vendor.The “Smart
    Solutions” one-touch applications include scanning business cards,
    scanning to folders, a cartridge locator, print photos directly from
    online photo galleries and even RSS feeds to news and weather sites.

    There
    are 14 applications in the online store, with more awaiting approval.
    Lexmark has not released the software development kit for its inkjet
    range, though it has for the enterprise (laser) range.The applications
    for Lexmark’s inkjet MFDs are not compatible with its enterprise
    range.The applications appear as colourful buttons on the black
    touchscreen, which looks very similar to the iPhone’s interface. The
    touchscreen MFDs start at $399 including GST and top out at $599.Other
    features include wireless 802.11g on the more basic MFDs and 802.11n
    and Ethernet on the upper range. All but the two entry-level models
    print double-sided, although scanning is only single-sided.

    Lexmark
    claims the 802.11n, web-connected touchscreens and business
    applications as world firsts.All the products are built on the same
    platform and use the one series of cartridges. The larger printers can
    use a 510-page black cartridge which sells for $7.95 and drops the per
    page cost to one cent.Stephen Bell, channel and SMB manager for
    Lexmark, said he had been talking to reseller partners about the range
    this month and had received very positive feedback.The printers are
    backed by an on-site exchange warranty, covered in the first 12 months
    by the retailer and for three years by the channel.
