I travel a lot. Of course, I always take along a laptop computer. …and a tablet computer … and a cell phone. I use them often while traveling and occasionally have a need to print something. Of course, packing a printer in the suitcase is close to impossible these days. To be sure, there are a few compact printers that are advertised as “portable” but I have always found them lacking. They are either a bit too big and bulky or else they print slowly or only on special paper that feels “waxy” and rubs off on your fingers. In short, I have never found a portable printer that I wanted to carry with me… until now.
Zuta is a tiny printer that is entering production now. It is expected to ship in January or soon after and will have a price tag of about $240. To be sure, it will be a slow printer at 1.2 pages per minute but it is compact, not much bigger than a softball. You won’t use the Zuta to print a book but it should work great whenever you need to print two or three pages. It will print on normal paper as used in almost all other inkjet printers.
