Issue #1102 – With new A3 inkjet All-in-One models now being launched by Brother, the battle for the A3 inkjet business AiO sector is now fully on. Brother has drawn a new line in the sand with a range of devices that claim doubled print speed from the previous generation and all of which deliver duplex printing (even in A3 format), A3 scan platen and both wired and wireless connectivity as standard features.
