Economist rounds up inkjet markets

In an online piece dated March 30, 2007, The Economist covers HP's (NYSE HPQ) Edgeline, as well as their HP Officejet Pro L7000 all-in-ones, Kodak's EasyShare 5000 series, and even the Silverbrook Memjet developments in a short but robust view of what's been a VERY ACTIVE first quarter of 2007 in the inkjet printing world.

Interesting closing quote too on the Silverbrook Memjet situation, including potential partnership speculation (the first naming of names):

No one expects Silverbrook to go head-to head with HP, Canon, Epson or Lexmark. But if the Memjet technology is as good as the scuttlebutt suggests, it could easily be licensed to market heavyweights like Dell, Panasonic or Samsung.
