Kodak will start sales in March of 3 EasyShare All-in-One printers, ranging from $150 to $300, which will print, scan and copy document and photos. Black replacement ink cartridges will sell for about $10, and color cartridges for about $15, about 50 percent less than its rivals [...]

Article from the Washington Post (Registration may be required): [washingtonpost.com...]

The printer industry has created this niche for Kodak by pricing printers inexpensively and then charging for ink at prices that, according to the Wall Street Journal, exceed the price per ounce of caviar and high-end perfumes.

Great move; fingers crossed they don't jack up their prices once they get market share - as others have before them!

That would be bad - expensive printer AND expensive ink!

Stupid HP, stupid stores.

People will inevitably shop around, and the likely gainers are the online stores.

That means a fair number of folk will get ripped off with tacky products, and blame HP.

Some Consumers - Lose
Colluding Stores - Lose
HP - Lose

Other Consumers - Win
Other Stores - Win
Other Print Companies - Win

I'm constantly amazed at the stupidity of multi-national companies; they simply cannot help trying to turn a market into a monopoly!
