Canon wants to bring down the cost of printing with affordable ink tank printers but isn’t discounting laser printers yet

Canon has unveiled six new printers targeting WFH employees, SMBs and what it calls busy households. Surprisingly, four of the printers are laser models (imageCLASS MF652Cw, imageCLASS MF275dw, imageCLASS MF273dw, imageCLASS MF272dw) with two of them being ink tank cartridges (PIXMA G4270 and PIXMA G3262); this comes at a time when at least one competitor, Epson, has announced that it is going to stop producing laser printers going forward, instead focusing on inkjet printers.

All laser printers are all-in-one models with one of them being a color multifunction printer, indicating that black and white printers are still very much the bread and butter of office printing, at least for small and medium businesses. The MF652Cw and the MF272dw will be available exclusively from Walmart from as little as $189 while the two other laser printers will go on sale through Canon online and select retailers.
