Epson has launched the Stylus Photo TX700W, its wireless all-in-one, 6-color photo printer for photo-enthusiasts to print their photos from anywhere in the home. The press release said the Stylus Photo TX700W is a winner of the highly acclaimed International Forum (iF) Design Awards in 2009 (The International Forum Design is an independent institution which is a window on the latest technological developments and trends).

The printer comes with two in-built trays for users to have both plain and photo paper ready for use. With a compact design and integral scanner and copier functions the TX700W is a multi-function device that also has the capacity to print CDs and DVDs.
