New Ricoh MPC8002 & MPC6502 Sneak Peek

On April 25th Ricoh Japan launched the much anticipated launch of their new high speed color MFP. For those of us in the states, we've been waiting along time for the refresh of the current MPC6501 and MPC7501. 

I've been told that the system will not launch in the US until the current inventory of MPC6501's and 7501's have been depleted.  I can hope that this will happen sooner rather than later since we are so far behind the curve of technology with the old systems.

So, what's new?  I've been told (rumor) that the new MPC 8002 and MPC6502 is a new clean sheet design.  What I'll do is post some of the specs for the new systems, because at this point that's about all I know.

I have off good authority that this design is the make or break for Ricoh. And apparently it's not as "clean sheet" as we were all hoping.

i've got insider info that the dealers in the states are starting to market these machines... in fact i've been tasked with putting them on our website!

Keystone Business Products - an authorized Lanier and Ricoh dealership

thanks for the (rumored?) specs.

lou I appreciate a response, however your reference to rumors specs? This thread is over a month old and we were already talking about the specs a month to two months prior to that on the print for pay hotel forums. Thanks again
