As ownership of smartphones and tablets grows, expected to reach 5.1 billion worldwide by 2018, Epson sees a huge opportunity and it’s mobile print efforts are designed to embrace both the rapidly evolving demands of mobile customers and the diversity of multiple operating systems.
The firm is committed to the Mopria Alliance’s mission for intuitive mobile printing. Mopria members are advancing mobile print standards that allow business and home users to print regardless of brand, device or operating system.
By becoming certified, Epson’s printers will work with the Mopria Print Service and the built-in Printing Framework in Android v4.4 or later (KitKat). After ensuring the printer has the latest version of firmware installed, Android 4.4 users can print from Google apps such as Chrome, Gmail, Drive and QuickOffice, as well as the Adobe Reader and Kingsoft WPS Office App. With Android projected to account for 74 percent of global smartphones and tablets sold in 20142, Epson is actively enabling intuitive printing for an unprecedented number of new Android users.
From today, Mopria-certified mobile devices will be able to automatically detect the following Epson Mopria-certified printers through their Wi-Fi connection, Expression Home XP-322, Expression Home XP-422, Expression Home XP-425, Expression Premium XP-520, Expression Premium XP-620, Expression Premium XP-625, Expression Premium XP-720, Expression Premium XP-820, Expression Photo XP-760, Expression Photo XP-860, WorkForce WF-2630, WorkForce WF-2660 and WorkForce WF-2650.
