HP and Samsung partner on a new mobile print offering

Off the heels of the big Samsung smartphone launch in New York, Hewlett Packard / HP unveiled a new print offering built within select Samsung devices to provide users a way to print directly to more than 180 HP network printers.

The partnership with Samsung is part of HP’s investment in mobile and on-demand printing that started with HP’s ePrint. The Palo Alto, California-based technology giant said that this new print offering differs from current mobile printing apps on the market because the new embedded solution from HP and Samsung requires no setup, tools, drivers or network configurations to adjust on the phone.

The HP/Samsung mobile printing app also offers printer settings and options that you would find inside an office such as duplex printing, color, orientation and paper type.

Print functionality is supported with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and will be available later this year as a firmware upgrade to the Galaxy S III and Note II, enabling built-in, wireless printing compatibility.

According to HP, users can print by automatically connecting the Samsung mobile device and HP printer on the same local network or through Wi-Fi, or by using HP’s wireless direct print solution.

Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet and Printing Solutions and Graphics Solutions Business, Printing and Personal Systems Group at HP, said 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 built-in print solution works in three steps: first choose a document, photo or Web page; select a printer (either on Wi-Fi or directly); and hit print. The embedded solution also offers additional print options including number of copies, paper size, paper type, color mode and job completion status.

The print solution is compatible with nearly 200 HP printer models across the HP inkjet and HP LaserJet printers.

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.
