Xerox Corporation has teamed up with On Demand Books, the company that makes the Expresso Book Machine.
In the new partnership, the Xerox 4112 and the Espresso Book Machine will be marketed and sold together--capable of creating a new book in minutes with "the capacity to print more than 40,000 paperback books per year."What this means is that:
On Demand will now have the considerable resources of Xerox at its disposal, in terms of a sales force and a trusted name in the business of copying things fast ... There are only 21 stores and libraries that currently have the machines, but through this agreement, you can bet you'll see more of them--On Demand hopes to get 80 machines in the world by the end of 2011."We’ve all been wondering when and if the Expresso Book Machine would ever take off. This looks to be a promising union.
