Printer Touchscreen Likely To Benefit Businesses
Posted by Alex Turner
Lexmark hopes that its built-in touchscreen will change the way that businesses view the capabilities of printers.
This is according to ZDNet UK's Alan Stevens, who said that it is now customary that every new printer is either faster, cheaper or more efficient than its predecessor.
With radical new features "few and far between nowadays", Mr Stevens said the touchscreen be recognised by the business community.
"Lexmark reckons it's the first to build one into an ordinary single-function printer," he commented.
New Lexmark printers also allow customers to run applications, with one being a forms printing programme.
This allows common business forms to be made without having to use a computer.
While many printers feature this type of application, Lexmark's touchscreen makes them easier to use.
Earlier this year, Lexmark introduced its C730 series of colour laser printers, which offer businesses affordable in-house colour printing.
Products in the C730 series are able to print on a wide range of paper types including envelopes, labels and card stock.
