Canon i960 has 1/2 of 1% of the memory as HP 7660 does (80KB vs 16MB).  How is this possible?

The HP has enough RAM for one or more photos, while the Canon only has enough for a couple of rows of pixels. As both are intended to print photos this probably does not make much difference, although the HP might be faster when printing multiple copies of the same photo.

I suspect the reason more likely involves marketing: 16MB sounds sooo much better, at a very minimal extra cost

So would you say Canon has a high level of integrity or ignorant marketing department?
