We burn the midnight oil here. And why do we do it? So we can bring you late-breaking news, regarding the latest and greatest releases from companies like Brother. We've got several new printers lined up, most of which are slotted for some small business use. Perfect for those who need to get a quick print job out of the way.

Up first, we've got the HL-3040CN, which has a printing speed of 17 ppm, in color or monochrome. There is 600x2400 dpi resolution to boot. If that doesn't do it for you, users can put up to 250 sheets of paper in the loading tray, and can connect the printer by either an Ethernet connection, or USB 2.0 interface. This piece of printing gadgetry will be available later this month, for a price of $300.

Stepping up next for the HL, is the HL-3070CW, which has all the features of the previous (3040CN) model, but comes packing a few extra surprises: WiFi connectivity, support for PCL6, and BR-Script3 emulation, and finally the ability for users to directly connect a USB flash drive and print JPEG or PDF files. The 3070CW will be available this month, stuck with a price tag of $350.

The MFC line up starts off with the MFC-9010CN all-in-one, that combines print, scan, and copy capabilities, with printing speeds reaching a maximum 17 ppm. The 9010 also has a printing resolution of 600x2400 dpi, and the 250-sheet feeder. It also has a USB/Ethernet interface, and a two-piece toner/drum set. We've got an October release date for this one, at $400.

The MFC-9120CN offers all the aforementioned features of the 9010CN, but then throws Super G3 faxing into the mix for good measure. And finally, the MFC-9320CW adds WiFi and USB interface for printing from a flash drive. These two will also be launched in October, for $450 and $500 respectively.
