Issue #0808/1 – Following on from the launch of its stylish gloss black, mono laser printer and AiO products in the Autumn of 2007 (ML-1630 and SCX-4500), Samsung has announced a range of new products, including new colour laser printer and AiO family at CeBIT 2008 (CLP-310 and CLX-3170 series), that continues the theme of miniaturising colour laser printing while introducing the choice of black styling to fit any environment on certain product lines.

Issue #0808/3 – Both Staples and Hewlett-Packard gain from a joint recycling programme in the US because customers thinking of changing their old printer for a new, faster, more productive model that is (perhaps) less costly to run, will be drawn into Staples stores by the promise of $50 of their new printer – as long as it is a Hewlett-Packard printer and costs more than $159.
