HP and Samsung co-operate to deliver mobile printing   28 March 2013   


Business usage of smartphones and tablets increases ever faster, and now HP (the primary manufacturer of laser printers) and the telephony branch of Samsung have unveiled their strategy for mobile printing between their respective devices.

Up to now, to print from an Android mobile device an additional app has had to be downloaded and installed.  Soon Samsung smartphones and tablets will be able to print to a list of HP printers without needing any third-party software at all. 

Mobile users will be able to connect with some 200 printers and MFPs across a company wifi network, or directly with the wifi card on some HP devices.  The range of printing options available is quite wide, including single-/double-sided printing, color/monochrome and paper type.

These features will be available out of the box for Samsung Galaxy S4 and will appear in updates for Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 devices.

Opening up to mobile printing raises serious security questions for businesses, as mobile devices with access to the secure company network for printing can also access other data.  This solution (like others including Apple AirPrint) does not support print accounting either, another area of concern for businesses attempting to keep costs firmly under control.
