Konica Minolta and Kodak's Nexpress. What's next?

Konica Minolta is one of the lurking titans. Canon is another. Kodak needs to do something. They did a deal in Australasia with Konica Minolta. It's a much better fit than Heidelberg in Euromerica. Later in the story at Print21, "According to Kaji, the deal with Kodak is only the start of things to come for the progressive Konica Minolta, which is planning for further growth."
Konica Minolta snaps up Kodak Nexpress distributor deal
@Print21: " Tuesday, 26 May 2009
Konica Minolta kicked off PacPrint with a bang after revealing a Kodak Nexpress on its stand. The machine was not placed there by mistake; as of today, Konica Minolta is now the official distributor of the Kodak Nexpress digital production colour presses throughout Australia.

The agreement maintains Kodak as the service partner for all Nexpress press installations. From now on, all new Konica Minolta Nexpress press customers will be handled through the existing Konica Minolta call centre."
Global stuff often happens first in Australasia.
