Samsung release mobile printing App Jan 06, 2011 08:20 by John Sollars
Samsung Electronics Corporation, today announced the Samsung MobilePrint app, its first application for printing from Android and iOS mobile devices to Samsung wireless printers, at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Whether using Samsung Ink or Samsung Toner Cartridges, the MobilePrint app allows users to print emails, web pages, maps, photos, and Microsoft Office and PDF files faster when traveling for business, working remotely, or visiting with friends and family. The solution will be on display at CES in Central Hall booth #12006, January 6-9, 2011.
“Over the past year Samsung has built its leadership in the printer space with the introduction of innovative features like the one-touch print button and AnyWeb Print software for easier web page prints,” said Ken Colby, director of printer marketing at Samsung Electronics Enterprise Business Division. “We are kicking off 2011 by expanding the depth of our printer solutions with the Samsung MobilePrint app which offers a convenient solution for printing from a mobile device, a very real need for today’s smartphone-centric lifestyle.”
HASSLE-FREE, SEAMLESS CONNECTIVITY
The Samsung MobilePrint app is available for Android smartphones, Android tablets and iOS based devices and can be downloaded from the relevant application store or marketplace. It will detect and connect directly to Samsung wireless printers in the area via Wi-Fi or a network link. Samsung Mobile Print/Scan app users can then print directly from their devices with the click of a button, eliminating the hassle of driver installations and network configurations.
SIMPLE EDITING AND SCANNING
Samsung’s Mobile/Print Scan app also allows users to quickly review and edit documents that have been scanned into a local Samsung printer. Using this feature, mobile devices can detect documents scanned to a local multifunction printer (MFP) or, alternatively, be sent the scanned document by the MFP user. This is an ideal solution for editing document layouts, as it allows mobile edits to be made to the scan’s image quality and file type, and provides a choice between color or black and white scans.
FASTER PHOTO AND TRAVEL ITINERARY PRINTS
Samsung’s Mobile Print/Scan app brings a new dimension to mobile photography by providing users with a way to select and print multiple images simultaneously through their Samsung device’s photo gallery. It also saves time for frequent travellers who need to print e-tickets, flight confirmations or other itineraries at the last minute by using their mobile device’s SD card.
The Samsung Mobile Print/Scan app will be available for free this winter. It will be built-in to the Galaxy Tab beginning in 2011. The application will be compatible with all existing and new Samsung wireless and network printers.
