Canon U.S.A. on Monday introduced the new Pixma iP100 mobile printer for Mac OS X and Windows. It costs $249.99.
The printer can print up to 9600 x 2400 dot per inch (DPI) resolution. It prints up to 20 pages per minute (ppm) in black and 14 ppm in color, and can output 4×6, 4×8, 5×7, 8×10 and letter size images — borderless, as well. It includes PictBridge support, which means it can print images from compatible cameras without needing to be connected to a computer first. Otherwise it sports a USB 2.0 interface.
The printer has a built-in IrDA port, which lets it print wirelessly from supported devices. Canon is also offering the BU-30, a Bluetooth interface, for $49.99.
As a portable printer, the iP100 can operate on battery — Canon offers the optional LK-62, which lasts for about 290 pages on a three-hour charge, for $99.99. An automobile power unit (which plugs into the cigarette lighter or accessory socket on a car) is also available for $89.99.
Canon’s Web site had not been updated with information about the Pixma iP100 as Macworld posted this article.
