Canon Adds Two New Wireless Color Inkjet PIXMA All-in-Ones, 13"x19" PIXMA Photo Printer, Support AirPrint
Canon U.S.A. is extending its lineup of PIXMA color inkjet All-in-Ones and printers with four new introductions – the PIXMA MX532 Wireless Office All-In-One, PIXMA MX472 Wireless Office All-In-One, PIXMA iX6820 Wireless Inkjet Business Printer, and PIXMA iP8720 Wireless Inkjet Photo models, all designed for personal and home-office users.
