Re: When will we see the new 3880?

Some will ask, why did Epson just repackage the R2400 in a new case
and update the inkset ever so slighty?

IMO, it's not a simple matter of updating the ink set. The print head tech has to change since you can't use the new inks with the old heads (supposedly it will destroy them). So the R2880 inherits the new head tech and presumably the newer screening algorithm employed first by the 3800 and then later by the xx80 models (4880 and up).

Second, there's the Radiance tech which is completely new to the K3 line of printers and I'll try to address that in a separate post since Neil asked about it.
