Submission + - Silverbrook's ultra-fast, low cost inkjet printer

An anonymous reader writes: Silverbrook research has created a cheap and ultra fast inkjet printer with low running costs. Using a print head that spans the entire width of the paper Silverbrook's prototype A4 printer can deliver 60 pages per minute. Printing costs are $0.02pp for black text (presumably at 5% coverage) and $0.06pp for colour (at 20% coverage), due to the generous 50mL refill cartridges that will sell for less than $20. The introductory photo printing model will cost under $300 and print at 30ppm with a 100mm wide print head that delivers ink drops smaller than one picolitre. The nearest competition is from HP at $16,000/unit.

The photo printing model is due out by the end of the year.
