Dell has released a mobile printing app for Android tablets and smartphone users as a free download, with the slight catch that the list of supported printers includes only Dell models.
Available to download from Google Play, the Dell Mobile Print app provides printing of photos, documents and other content from an Android-based device directly to any supported printer via a Wi-Fi or Ethernet network.
The tool, which is an 11MB download and runs on Android devices with version 2.1 of the platform and above, supports automatic discovery of nearby printers in just a few seconds, and will print to any supported Dell printer.
A list of supported Dell laser and inkjet models is available on the Mobile Print app download page.
In a blog post announcing the app, Dell's Paul Nicholson, online marketing manager for printers, said there is a growing need for users to be able to print content directly from their mobile devices to their printer.
"Dell recognises that the Android operating system is fast becoming an important end user computing platform," he said.
The app supports printing of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, Google Docs and PDFs, as well as Contacts and Calendar entries, SMS messages and web pages.
