The history of the printer in Europe dates back to the 1300s. From this, hundreds of designs have been featured and grown, all designed to improve our office lives. In 2005, the launch of the first iPad began the tablet takeover, and soon after, users were requesting printing via tablet.
Finally in 2011, Apple launches Air Print. This involves users being able to print using their device as long as this is connected to the same Wi-Fi hub as the printer itself.
So basically, what this all means is, you no longer need to be logged into a computer for you to be able to print. You can be in your car in the company car park, as long as you are still connected to the Wi-Fi, you will still be able to print or scan.
The best part about mobile printing is that using your phone or a tablet; you can download the Konica Minolta Page Scope App for free. So if you’re feeling really tech-y this will give you far greater options with regards to going into the properties of what you are printing to make this task all the more personalised with the functionalities of printer properties.
Not only can you print, but you can also scan as well using the same free Konica Minolta printing app. This will make your working life a whole lot easier with the ability to scan through documents to your email address or a central folder on the move.
Have no fear Android users- it’s not just Apple who have allowed this to happen. You are just as able to use mobile printing with the Mobile Printing App available on the Android Market.
