RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 26, 2009) - In time for Earth Day on April 22, Lexmark Canada has introduced the X4650 Environmental Edition Wireless all-in-one printer, which will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart for $69 starting in April.

For every X4650 Environmental Edition Wireless printer sold, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree. And the fact that this all-in-one printer (print, scan, copy) has built-in Wi-Fi reduces electronic waste because it can connect multiple computers at home to one printer. This printer is also energy star certified, which reduces power consumption by 33% when in sleep mode.

Lexmark Canada also offers free recycling for its ink cartridges. Customers place used Lexmark ink cartridges in a prepaid postage bag and send it to Lexmark for recycling. As well, the X4650's packaging is comprised of corrugate made from 100% recycled product and is 100% recyclable.

The X4650 prints up to 25 pages per minute (ppm) for black and 18 ppm for colour with superior quality printing of up to 4800 X 1200 dpi. PrecisionSense™ technology detects the type of paper being used to determine print resolution automatically. It has 1-touch, PC-free copying (colour or black) capability and the unit's flatbed scanner easily handles thick books and reports.

Photo printing capabilities for the X4650 include the ability to print directly from digital memory card slots, and because it is PictBridge™ compatible, prints from digital cameras or USB flash drives. It can perform brilliant, 6-colour printing with an optional photo cartridge and prints borderless photos in popular sizes with available photo effects such as sepia, antique gray, antique brown, and black and white.

Lexmark also includes free software to make projects and printing easy. Productivity Studio Software makes it easy to scan, crop, rotate and resize photos, plus 1-touch colour fix and red eye reduction. Lexmark Toolbar, and Picnik™ give options for photo editing and makes internet printing easy with schedule prints and eliminating unwanted text when printing. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software allows users to easily scan hard copy text documents into a soft copy format. And it preserves important documents with direct to PDF scanning.
