Samsung today announced during IFA that it’s introducing the world’s first printer powered by Android. While someone should probably let Samsung know they’re actually not the first, its ten new Android printer models are set to hit at least the European market in the near future:
As part of Samsung’s focus to develop printer solutions that seamlessly fit into the IT and Smart office ecosystem, the new Android based MFPs will feature Samsung’s Smart UX Center to operate independently without a PC, app scalability, and a consumer friendly UI.
The printers include a 10.1-inch touchscreen for the Android-based UI that will make easy for users to print from web browsers, emails, maps, images and other apps without having to connect to a PC or other device. Samsung will also, however, sell an NFC Pro accessory that will offer a fast and seamless experience for printing from mobile devices as well.
Samsung hasn’t yet announced specific pricing and availability for the products but has more info on various models here.
