One of Europes largest printer manufacturers, Olivetti, have today launched their ANY_WAY and MY_WAY range.
It is no secret that printers arent the most exciting devices to have under your desk, but these new ranges are packed with features including wireless technology.
Starting at Â£39 for the basic, no-frills printer and scanner ANY_WAY model, there are 3 more in the range with the most expensive packing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth - eliminating the need for a PC. Oh yes, theyre all PictBridge enabled too.
For photographers on the go, the MY_WAY portable printer can be powered by mains, batteries or even via a 12v car cigarette lighter adapter. It also integrates PictBridge and Bluetooth and as with the ANY_WAY range the price remains low at Â£79.
This announcement comes a few weeks after Canon unveiled their wireless and portable ranges in North America. Olivettis range will be available "early 2006" - in other words, any day now.
