This compact and end extremely portable unit looks more like a space-age toaster than a printer. It has a small footprint and a fold-away handle for easy transport, and uses PictBridge technology for direct connection to a digital camera. Memory card slots encompass all major memory formats and an optional Bluetooth module can be purchased to allow printing from any Bluetooth-capable mobile phones.
We noted superb colour representation during testing. Epson's range of UltraChrome Hi-Gloss inks and photo paper produces prints that are said to last 200 years in archival sleeves and 100 years in a glass frame.
Costs are approximately 50 cents per page and the printer is priced at $399. It is a shame we couldn't get hold of this unit last month; it definitely would have given the other dedicated small form factor printers a run for their money.
