Printer vendor Epson today unveiled the Epson Expression Photo XP-850 "Small-in-One" printer.

The new printer includes Ethernet networking and built-in Wi-Fi for multiple users to share one printer or print from any room. It also offers a variety of wireless functionality, including Wi-Fi Direct for printing from a mobile device without a network. In addition, the XP-850 is equipped with Epson Connect, a suite of mobile printing solutions that make it easier for users to print documents, emails, photos, and web pages from iPads, iPhones, tablets, and smartphones from anywhere in the world.
