HP Releases Color MFP; Announces Print Service Contracts for SMBs
HP introduced a multifunction color laser jet printer for businesses—the HP Color LaserJet 4730. The machine costs $4,999, a price HP says is half that of competing multi-function printers. It prints in both color and black and white at 30 pages per minute.
The company also introduced printers aimed at small- to medium-size businesses, including the HP Color LaserJet 4700, starting at $1,999. It prints up to 31 pages per minute in color and black and white.
In addition, the company said, it is starting to offer printing service contracts for small- to medium-size businesses, via the Web. Through one contract and a flat monthly fee, customers will get hardware, repair services, preventive maintenance, network installation and a guaranteed quantity of toner cartridges. HP Smart Printing Services will be available Nov. 1.
