TORONTO, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - Kodak Canada invites consumers to unlock the photos and documents stored in their Smartphones(1) with its new KODAK ESP 7250 All-in-One (AiO) Printer. Featuring easy-to-use wireless capabilities, an intuitive control panel and the lowest total ink replacement cost in the industry(2), the new KODAK ESP 7250 helps you share and print your mobile life for less, saving consumers an average of $137 a year on ink based on as few as four pages per day(3).
Kodak knows that on-the-go lifestyles need easy solutions, such as the ability to print and share without turning on a computer. The ESP 7250 can print documents and photos directly from Wi-Fi enabled BLACKBERRY Smartphones(1), offering the world's first direct WiFi printing solution for those devices. In addition, users of iPhone and iPod Touch devices can print photos directly to the ESP 7250 through the new Kodak Pic Flick application.
"Kodak is proud to offer consumers innovative high-quality printing solutions that give them the flexibility to easily connect, print and share," said Susan Tousi, General Manager, Inkjet Systems and Vice President, Eastman Kodak. "Sharing images is key to preserving memories. The new ESP 7250 enables consumers to do that easily from their favorite Smartphone(1) and share prints that not only have incredible quality but an incredible value."
The ESP 7250 joins Kodak's award-winning line of printers that allow consumers to print vivid colour documents and KODAK lab-quality photos(4) for less, saving on average $137 a year on ink based on as few as four pages per day(3). Kodak prints have achieved best-in-class permanence ratings from the leading independent testing laboratory, Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR).
