Kodak announces ESP 7250
Kodak has today announced the latest all-in-one printer to their rapidly expanding range of affordable inkjets - the ESP 7250. As well as the expected scan and print options, the new ESP7250 adds WiFi connectivity for printing directly from smartphones - the iPhone - in particular, as well as a built-in duplexer (for printing on both sides).
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 Smartphones1, offering the world’s first direct WiFi printing solution for those devices. In addition, users of 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 Bob Ohlweiler, Kodak’s Director and Vice President of Inkjet Systems, Europe. “Sharing images is key to preserving memories. The new ESP 7250 enables consumers to do that easily from their Smartphone1 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 photos4 for less, saving on average up to £75 a year on ink based on as few as four pages per day3.
