April 22, 2007-Lexmark International announced that, with the introduction of its 2007 product line, Lexmark will offer a broad range of "affordable" wireless printers.
Lexmark said that pricing starts at $79.99. The company noted that eight out of its 12 new inkjet printers being introduced in 2007 will have wireless capabilities spanning four-in-one, three-in-one and single-function printer categories.
Available in the second quarter of 2007 are the Lexmark X4550 Wireless All-in-One (AIO), the Lexmark Z1420 Wireless Color Printer, and the Lexmark X3550 Color All-in-One with wireless as an optional feature.
The remaining wireless offerings will be introduced and available later this year. Once the full line is available, it will include six inkjet printers with integrated wireless and two with optional wireless capability.
"Consumers are embracing wireless networking with the rapid adoption of wireless notebook computers and wireless routers. However, because of the high price of existing wireless printers and the complexity of use, consumers have been slow to adopt wireless printing. We intend to change that with new wireless printers from Lexmark that are affordable, easy to install and easy to use," said Najib Bahous, Lexmark vice president and president of its Consumer Printer Division.
Wireless printing enables users to print with the same freedom and mobility they enjoy when working on a wireless laptop computer. Users can place the printer anywhere in the home covered by their wireless networks. In addition, multiple computer users can enjoy the added convenience of sharing the same wireless printer, eliminating the need for multiple devices.
