Eastman Kodak Company is looking to shake-up the local inkjet printing market with the introduction of its line of Kodak All-in-One Printers for the home and home office. Traditionally, inkjet printers are sold at a low price, with margins being made on ink. Now Kodak is trying things a bit differently – asking a higher price for the printer, but cutting cost on ink. According to Kodak, its printing systems have the lowest average cost-per- page.

From 21 September 2011, the Kodak HERO 5.1 All-in-One Printer, ESP Office C2170 All-in-One Printer, ESP C310 All-in-One Printer and ESP C110 All-in-One Printer will be available in Incredible Connection and Kodak Express stores, and online at www.incredible.co.za.
