Canon still makes the Pixma iP90 (new version of the i80) which is
quite the portable printer. It's basically the continuation of the
same line that they've had for a long time (and Apple used for the
Color StyleWriter 2200) and has an optional battery pack and you can
swap a "scanner cartridge" in for the print-head/ink-tank cartridge too.

Cool stuff.
