Ricoh Americas is rolling  out its latest color laser copier/MFP, the MP C406 ($5,745 MSRP), which features Ricoh’s tablet-style touch screen for ease-of-use, as well as mobile printing (including NFC touch-to-print), and cloud connectivity.

This A4 MFP (print and scan with up to 8.5″x14″ media and documents), prints at up to 42 (black)/36 (color) ppm, and also features a compact footprint, Ricoh’s latest user-authentication, standard automatic duplex printing, and maximum 1,350-sheet paper capacity.

The MP C406’s Smart Operation Panel touch screen enables users to drag, drop, pinch, flick, and swipe to capture and manage documents. The embedded Web browser connects users to the Internet, including Ricoh’s Integrated Cloud Environment (ICE).

Also featured is near field communication (NFC) technology, allowing users of NFC-compatible smartphones and tablets to access the MFP and send print jobs from their mobile devices with the Ricoh Smart Device Connector App. An optional NFC card reader also allows users to swipe their company issued NFC-enabled ID card at the MFP for quicker user authentication.
