OKI Develops Printing Application for AndroidTM Operating System


Enables direct printing from Android mobile devices

Egham, 11th June 2014

OKI Europe Ltd has announced the launch of a "Mobile Print" application developed by OKI and available in Japanese and English that allows direct printing from mobile devices running the Android™ operating system. Available from today via Google Play™, "Mobile Print" is compatible with an extensive range of OKI’s LED single function and multifunction (MFP) printers (*1).

Previously, Google Cloud Print™ allowed users to print from Android mobile devices to a selection of OKI’s A4 color LED MFPs. The newly developed "Mobile Print" app allows users to bypass the cloud and print directly from their Android mobile devices on networks featuring OKI’s LED printers or MFPs.

"Having direct printing from Android mobile devices to printers and MFPs within our broad product portfolio provides increased opportunities for our channel partners and improved options for our end customers," said Lee Webster, General Manager, Product Marketing EMEA. "With the demand for mobile printing increasing, OKI will continue to aggressively develop solutions for the ever-expanding mobile market to provide optimal printing solutions to meet customers’ business needs."

」Allowing users to print PDF files, photographs, or Web pages from their mobile devices, "Mobile Print" also includes Correction Functions, which allow users to correct image distortion or colour balance before printing. This can be useful, for example, for a photo of a whiteboard taken with a mobile device camera. "Mobile Print" is also compatible with OKI Print Job Accounting functions, allowing users to manage print jobs or impose printing restrictions even when printing within the mobile environment.

To ensure compatibility with a wide range of smartphones and tablets, "Mobile Print" supports Android 4.4, the latest version of the Android operating system.

OKI has plans to develop the "Mobile Print" application in several other languages including French, Italian, Spanish and German.
