Released by Eastman Kodak company:
Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock 6000 Now Available
Makes Kodak 4 x 6 Photos at Home with Just One Touch
Backwards Compatible EasyShare Printer Dock Also Announced
London, UK, June 4- Eastman Kodak Company today announced the immediate availability of the Kodak EasyShare printer dock 6000. With the press of just one button, the device produces durable, long lasting, borderless 101mm x 152mm Kodak prints in as little as 90 seconds directly from new Kodak EasyShare 6000 and 600-series digital cameras, with or without a computer.
The printer dock 6000, the world's first combined printer-and-dock for digital cameras, triples the functionality of a common photo printer. It combines all the benefits of an EasyShare dock - one-touch picture transfer and quick camera battery recharging - with continuous tone thermal dye transfer printing plus the application of an exclusive XtraLife laminate coating. Since it doesn't need to be connected to a PC and can be set up in seconds, it functions as easily on a kitchen counter as it does in a home office. The product also includes an audio/video out jack for reviewing pictures on a television
Suggested retail pricing is £199.99. The combined colour cartridge and photo paper refill kit has a suggested retail price of £19.99 for 40 prints.
"The printer dock makes it simple for EasyShare digital camera owners to quickly share Kodak 101mm x 152mm - the preferred picture size worldwide - with just one press of a button," said Chris Bowen, UK country manager for Kodak's Digital & Applied Imaging Division. "It does three times the work of a routine photo printer: rapid battery recharging, one-touch picture transfer to a computer and printing on thermal paper for beautiful Kodak photos."
The product has already received high praise from groups such as the Digital Imaging Marketing Association (DIMA), which recently named it an Innovative Digital Product Award winner.
The printer dock 6000 is part of the award-winning Kodak EasyShare digital photography system that includes cameras, docks, software, inkjet papers and other accessories designed to simplify taking, sharing, and printing digital pictures.

The company also announced its Kodak EasyShare printer dock 4000, a similar device that is compatible with EasyShare CX/DX 4000 and 3000-series digital cameras, will be in stores later this year.
