Epson Connect-Enabled Printers now Support Mobile Printing from Kindle Fire Tablets
Epson America and Epson Japan announced on December 5th support for Kindle Fire Printing, an integrated wireless print solution for the new Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX tablets.
The firm says a wide range of Epson Connect-enabled printers now deliver extensive mobile printing capabilities for the new family of Kindle Fire tablets with Amazon Fire OS 3.1, making it easier than ever for users to wirelessly print documents, photos, appointments, and emails. An Internet connection to the Epson printer is required.
“Amazon just gave mobile productivity a huge boost, enabling Kindle Fire users to go beyond leisure and entertainment and use their tablets to stay connected and get the job done,” commented Ian Cameron, general manager of sales and marketing support at Epson.
The newest Kindle Fire tablets are the first ever Amazon devices to offer built-in wireless printing, and when combined with select Epson Connect-enabled printers, users can print documents, photos, emails, and calendar events directly from the Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX to any compatible Epson printer or All-in-One. With the free, built-in viewer application, users can preview Microsoft Office files and print them.
The new Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX require the free Fire OS 3.1 software update, available at Amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates. Once the update is installed, printing to a home or office wireless printer from the Kindle Fire tablets can be set up in a matter of seconds to a wide range of Epson Connect-enabled printers.
