Remember the mini printer that fits in your pocket from Zink? They have partnered with the creator of instant photo, Polaroid to push Zink Imaging into an instant and inkless mobile printer that’s capable to produce a full 2”x3” in less than 60 seconds. The pocket-sized mobile printer uses zero ink technology aka ZINK photo paper that embedded minuscule dye crystals in the photo paper.

Ricoh showed off a new printer to me this week from it’s new Aficio SP C222DN series. It’s a color laser printer and I while I’ve never used a Ricoh printer, I do use a Ricoh copier and it’s amazing and it gives a perfectly clear image everytime. I, personally, have never had any trouble with Ricoh products.

The ML-1630 is a monochromatic laser printer that is single function. The SCX-4500 is also a monochromatic laser printer, but it’s a multifunction machine, so it does copying and scanning as well.
You might remember them from our IFA 2007 coverage here. We found out then that when they went on sale they would be going for two and three hundred dollars respectively.
If you're going to give up desk-space to a printer then it may as well earn its keep by being bloody gorgeous. I'd wager that's the design brief given to Samsung's computer peripherals team; how else could you explain the glossy, piano lacquer pair of laser printers, the monochrome ML-1630 and the multifunction SCX-4500.
