HP and Samsung Launch New Mobile Print Offering

HP and Samsung Launch New Mobile Print Offering 
New Samsung GALAXY S 4 Can Easily Print Documents, Photos and Web
Pages Directly to HP Printers 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 --  HP (NYSE: HPQ) today
unveiled a new print offering built within select Samsung devices to
provide users an easy way to print directly to more than 180 HP
network printer models across the HP inkjet and HP LaserJet
The collaboration demonstrates HP's continued investment and
leadership in the mobile printing space by satisfying a common need
for today's mobile user -- on-demand, customized printing from
virtually anywhere.  
Different from current mobile printing apps on the market, the new
embedded solution from HP and Samsung requires no setup, tools,
drivers or network configurations to adjust on the phone, making
mobile printing effortless and convenient. In addition, the print
offering is one of the only solutions to offer sophisticated printer
settings and options that include duplex printing, color, orientation
and paper type. By offering these capabilities and much more, this
new mobile print enablement will make printing on the go easier,
saving time for the mobile worker and beyond.  
Print functionality will be supported with the upcoming release of
the Samsung GALAXY S 4 and will be available later this year as a
firmware upgrade to the Samsung GALAXY S III and Note II, enabling
built-in, wireless printing compatibility. 
Users can print in two ways: by automatically connecting their
Samsung mobile device and HP printer on the same local network via
Wi-Fi, or by using HP technology via wireless direct print.(1) 
"Customers continue to look for ways to print from their smartphones
and tablets," said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet and
Printing Solutions and Graphics Solutions Business, Printing and
Personal Systems Group, HP. "This partnership with Samsung is the
latest example of how HP is making it easy to print what you want
from wherever you are." 
The Samsung print solution is HP's latest feature for its mobile
print portfolio that also includes HP ePrint. 
The built-in print solution works in three simple steps: choose a
document, photo or web page(2); select a printer (either on Wi-Fi or
directly); and hit print. The embedded solution also offers
additional, convenient print options for the user, including number
of copies, paper size, orientation, paper type, color mode,
double-sided printing and job completion status.  
Availability and support
 The print solution is compatible with
nearly 200 HP printer models across the HP inkjet and HP LaserJet
printer portfolios.(3) 
The built-in print button will be available on many applications of
the Samsung mobile devices, including: Email Client, Android Browser,
Photo Gallery, Contacts, S Note and Polaris Office.
