To augment the CopyCentre line, Xerox released the new CopyCentre C32 Color and C40 Color copiers. The C32 machine copies black and white documents at 32 pages per minute (ppm), and color pages at 16ppm. The C40 copies black and white pages at 40ppm and color at 22ppm. In a copy cost twist, Xerox for the first time will charge C32 and C40 customers monochrome prices for black and white prices, and not the color pricing, which is the norm for color printers.New with the WorkCentre multifunction devices are the WorkCentre M15 and M15i. The M15 starts at $899, is designed as an entry-level MFP device and offers copying and printing capabilities. It can attach to single PC or laptop or as an option, be networked. The M15i adds color scanning and faxing capabilities to the machine. In addition to digital product realignment, Xerox also announced plans to open up more products to its distribution channels. For example, the company will begin offering distributors and resellers the chance to sell Xerox MFPs. The move is in the form of a pilot program, and extends the sales to distributors who normally were only able to resell printers.
The models, available May 1, start at $2,299.
