Samsung Malaysia Electronics has released a portfolio of NFC-enabled printers for mobile enterprises, SMEs, and entrepreneurs in Malaysia, said the South Korean electronics giant.
The NFC [Near Field Communication]-enabled colour laser printer and multi-function printers (MFPs) Xpress C410W series allow users print high quality photos and documents from their smart devices with ease, said Samsung Malaysia Electronics president Lee Dong Yong.
Lee said that with the increased functions included in smart devices and tablet and with businesses managing the practice of BYOD [bring your own device], the ability to print from mobile devices is more important than ever.
"Our latest printing solutions are grounded in business owners' desire to print photos and documents directly from their smart devices," he said. "As enterprises rapidly expand their businesses, we want to empower them with innovative technology that helps them to evolve and grow their business with a competitive edge."
"For example, the Xpress C410W series that support NFC are a good example of how Samsung is pioneering the mobile printing solution and NFC printer market, as well as demonstrating how we enhance consumers' experiences especially in the SOHO [small office/home office] and SMEs [small and medium enterprises] sectors," said Lee.
Printing from smart devices
"Samsung will continue to expand NFC-enabled mobile printing solutions to small to medium business users," he said, adding that the new printer Xpress C410W series comprises the C410W colour laser printer, the C460W colour laser MFPs with print, copy and scan functionality, and the C460FW colour laser MFPs with print, copy, scan and fax capabilities.
These C410W series have been specifically designed with the home and small office user in mind who wants to print content from their smart devices, said Lee. "These three models are able to print up to 18 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white and four ppm in colour."
"Printing has never been easier," he said. "The Xpress C410W series connects wirelessly with mobile devices for fast, integrated and convenient printing on the go. Users can effortlessly and securely print pictures, documents, e-mails and web content by simply tapping their smart devices on the printer. Scanning and faxing documents is also made easy as users are able to sync the contacts on their smart devices with the printers."
With Samsung Mobile Print App users are now able to print everything from PDF files to Microsoft Office documents such as Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations directly from their smart devices, Lee added. "Also, owners of Samsung's Galaxy smartphones and Galaxy Tab series have the added benefit of being able to print images from the gallery app, documents, email and web browser pages."
With the addition of the newly launched Xpress C410W series, Samsung Malaysia Electronics' printing solution portfolio has 53 models across its printers, MFPs and copiers that are priced between RM220 [US$68] to RM35,000 [US$10,760], he said.
