Hewlett-Packard continued its digital imaging outreach with the announcement, last week, that it is now shipping a color inkjet printer and color scanner for the mass market.
With estimated retail prices of $99 and $199, respectively, the HP Deskjet 920c color inkjet printer and HP Scanjet 5400c color scanner are a part of HP's effort to reach cost-conscious digital image consumers.
The Deskjet 920c can produce greeting cards, banners, brochures and photos at 2400 x 1200 dots-per-inch (dpi) color resolution at speeds of up to 9 pages-per-minute (ppm) in black and up to 7.5 ppm in color. The printer also offers a 100-sheet fold-up paper tray to conserve desktop space and a print-cancel button and low-ink indicator.
The HP Scanjet 5400c color scanner allows consumers to scan at up to 2400-dpi with 48-bit color to produce preview scans in eight seconds.
