For a long time, the two choices in desktop printers have been inkjet and laser. This year, a twist on the inkjet is promising high speed and lower cost.

San Diego-based Memjet says its first printer for the office will be sold by computer maker Lenovo Corp. in China early this year. Partners in Taiwan and India will also sell the printers.. Memjet hasn't announced a partner for the U.S., but it says the printer will be sold here this year as well.

Instead of having a small print head that sweeps across the page, as an inkjet printer does, Memjet's head is stationary and as wide as the page. As the paper travels underneath, 70,000 microscopic nozzles squirt ink at the same time.
