Bangalore, Febgruary 4 2017: Epson's WorkForce WF-100 portable printer is a marvel of miniaturization: A colour inkjet printer for A4 paper or 4-by-6 photo paper that weighs just 1.6 kg and fits neatly into a shoulder bag along with your laptop. This is a wireless printer which works with WiFi as well as the new WiFi Direct standard -- which means it does not require a router and can print directly from an Android phone or tablet. The rechargeable battery is rated to print 100 monochrome or 50 colour pages on a full charge.
It takes the old style 2-cartridge pack, one for black, the other for colour...not quite as economical as today's tank systems, but that is the price of portability. Print speed is reasonable -- between 3 and 6 pages a minute. And so the price-- Rs 20,999 -- considering the convenience. Hot shot executives impress clients in new ways: deliver that presentation, then print and distribute a hard copy handouts immediately. Deal clinched!
