Epson has today expanded its support for its range of Epson Connect-enabled printers, allowing the new Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX tablets to connect to its printer range wirelessly and print anything from a document to a photo from anywhere in the world.
This new availability comes thanks to the native printer support that was included with Android 4.4, meaning that theoretically any device running the software should also be able to connect to the printers, however if you are printing from one of the Kindle Fire devices you will need to download the Fire OS 3.1 software update, which is available from Amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates.
“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,” said Ian Cameron, general manager of sales and marketing support at Epson. “Collaboration and innovation are an important part of Epson’s strategy to drive home and business productivity via powerful mobile printing solutions across a range of devices and platforms. Today’s on-the-go users require multifunctional, easy-to-use options, and support of the new family of Kindle Fire tablets provides yet another convenient and powerful way to access, share and print from anywhere.”
