iPhone Printing Apps in bloom
The last three or four weeks have seen a plethora of iPhone printing apps hit the market. Canon (Easy-PhotoPrint), Kodak (NYSE EK) (Pic Flick) and Lexmark (NYSE LXK) (LexPrint) have joined HP (NYSE HPQ) (iPrint Photo), as providers of photo-printing apps that 1) are free, and 2) work on a subset of their own branded printers, which are typically WiFi-enabled but in some cases simply reside on the same WiFi LAN as the user's iPhone.
The overall market hasn't totally ignored the developments either, with LexPrint gaining kudos from Gizmodo. (see photo)
