AirPrint compatibility brings new level of simplicity and flexibility to 3-inch mobile printing for retail and mobile enterprise applications
BROOMFIELD, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brother International Corporation, announced today that its RuggedJet™3 Wi-Fi mobile receipt and label printer now supports Apple AirPrint™ wireless technology.
Available immediately, the new RuggedJet 3 Wi-Fi with AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly and directly from iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® without the need to download additional print drivers or interfaces. The RuggedJet 3 joins the Brother RuggedJet 4 Wi-Fi Series in providing AirPrint compatibility. Current users of both the RJ-3 and RJ-4 Wi-Fi printers can add support for AirPrint wireless technology via a simple, free firmware update available by Brother.
Ravi Panjwani, Vice President Marketing and Product Management for Brother Mobile Solutions, notes: “Support for AirPrint is significant for many mobile and field service enterprises, but is especially valuable in the retail environment. As retailers implement mobile networked POS systems that run from a wider and wider variety of handheld devices, our job is to make mobile printers that connect easily and reliably with those devices – yet are simple, and even fun for end users to learn and use.”
Panjwani continues, “We added AirPrint compatibility to the 3-inch mobile printer to deliver a truly simple mobile print and connect experience to the growing number of mobile and field service enterprises adopting iOS devices.”
