Brother releases professional class multifunction inkjet printer

Brother's new multifunction inkjet can print 11x17 inch ledger prints.

Brother's newest inkjet multifunction printer, the MFC-6490CW is a milestone for the company--it's their first color inkjet that can print, copy, scan, and fax on 11 inch by 17-inch tabloid sized paper. This is also the first in a new line of "Professional Series" printers that accommodate the creative and innovative consumer.

The printer will have ports for direct printing from USB flash drives, PictBridge compatible ports, and external multimedia cards. In addition, the MFC-6490CW is also wireless and includes a built in auto-document feeder, dual paper input trays, and a four ink cartridge bay. We're also excited to see that it has a beautiful 3.3-inch color LCD that acts as a control center for the device.

The printer will be available next month for $299; look for an in depth review from CNET soon.
