Canon PIXMA mobile printer gets an upgrade: faster, higher DPI


Canon_unveils_pixma_ip100_mobile_prJust over a year ago we took note of the Canon PIXMA iP90v, a printer for those on the run. Canon refreshed the PIXMA this month with the iP100. What do you get other than a higher model number? Speed for one thing: the older iP90v took around 90 seconds to kick out a 4-inch by 6-inch borderless color photo. That same postcard portrait now appears in 50 seconds. Full color pages get hammered out up to 14 ppm, while black and white docs raise the speed limit to 20 ppm.The resolution got a bump in both directions too: 4800 x 1200 dpi was the norm on last year’s model, while this year brings 9600 x 2400 dpi. You can still get the optional Bluetooth module or battery for mobility, and the price of this 4.4-pound printer stays at an MSRP of $249.99. I did notice that the battery for iP100v doesn’t offer the same amount of printing as the one for the iP90v: expect 290 printed pages per charge, which compares to 450 pages for last year’s model.(via Everything USB)
