Three new models support smartphones, computers
Samsung Electronics today introduced the industry's first Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled color laser printer and multi-function printers. The new Xpress C410W series allows users to print high quality photos and documents from their smartphones or from a computer wirelessly. The new printers consist of the C410W color laser printer, the C460W color laser MFPs with print, copy and scan functionality, and the C460FW color laser MFPs with print, copy, scan and fax capabilities.
These C410W series devices have been specifically designed with the home and small office user in mind who wants to print content from their smartphones. These three models are able to print up to 18 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white and four ppm in color.
With the free Samsung Mobile Print App, users are able to print everything from PDF files to Microsoft Office documents directly from mobile devices. Samsung phone users simply need to tap the phone on the printer to connect and have the added benefit of being able to print images from the gallery app, documents, email and web browser pages.
Pricing and availability dates of the three printers have not yet been revealed.
