Samsung’s New NFC Laser Printers: Simplify, Future-Proof Printing At Home

You can now add printers to the list of convenient tap-and-go NFC devices. Samsung’s latest high performance colour and mono lasers deliver outstanding quality and the ease of NFC, Google Cloud and wireless mobile printing. Perfect for hard copy sketches from a tablet, boarding passes from phones, or clients using your printer without fiddly setup — all with or without turning on your PC.

Support for seamless tap and go printing through Near Field Communications (NFC) is an industry-first innovation being driven by Samsung.

It makes sense, too, given the technology’s inclusion in a wide range of popular mobile devices over the last few years. The phones and tablets used by your team and family. And if you own a Galaxy S series device, you don’t even need an app to print great-looking photos and web pages.
The Samsung MobilePrint app enables mobile printing in its most advanced form yet. In addition to mobile scans and faxes, the app lets you print various document types including images, Office docs, PDFs, Google Docs, email and Facebook content.

Ease Of Use And Convenience

As you’d expect, the 2014 range of affordable Samsung laser printers continues support for printing via Wi-Fi direct, Wi-Fi networks and even Google Cloud.

Simply register your printer to your Google account with the Samsung MobilePrint app by tapping your NFC-equipped mobile. Then use Google Cloud Print to print from mobile devices virtually anywhere. Users can print from the Samsung MobilePrint app and any other apps that support Google Cloud Print.
