Korea's Chosun Ilbo
English language site is reporting that Apple will be the exclusive retailer of Samsung's "world's slimmest monochrome laser printer" ML-1630 and multi-function SCX-4500
. Otherwise known as the "Swan" and "Logan" respectively, they
are expected to hit shelves starting
will remain Apple exclusives until
January 2008 at Apple's 160 or so retail stores -- a first for a Samsung product. According to an unnamed Samsung official, "Apple suggested the exclusive sales of Samsung's new printers at its retail stores. Apple is charmed by their sleek design and convenient user interface." How sweet. But until we see a press release from either Apple or Samsung, we'll chalk this one up to rumor mongering for the time being.Update
: The pair is already available "exclusively" from Apple's on-line store for $200
and should be on Apple shelves already.
