On December 4th, Canon announced it is adding three new models to it's stable of PIXMA family of printers: the MG6329, the MG5420, and the iP7220. Made with connectivity in mind, each of these printers can take print jobs from Windows RT, Android, and iOS devices as well as your computer at home. The MG6329, the MG5420, and the iP7220 will be sold for $199.99, $149.99 and $99.99 respectively.
So why should you pick one of these printers up? In addition to the MG series printers having multiple ink cartridges (5 for the MG5420, 6 for the MG6320), all three printers boast a much faster print time for 4 x 6 photo prints at a crazy-high color resolution of 9600 x 2400 DPI. All three reportedly can produce a borderless 4 x 6 photo in 21 seconds flat, but we'll have to test that one out in the lab just to be sure.
Like always, your needs will dictate which one you look at: both the MG6320 and MG5420 are multifunction printers that can easily handle photo jobs, while the iP7220 is a bit more specialized for photo prints. Canon claims that all three have been redesigned to take up less desk space, but they did not list the exact measurements.
