Canon has announced the launch of the Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application for BlackBerry smartphones.
With an increasing demand for on-the-go printing solutions, Canon’s application allows BlackBerry users to sync their phones with Canon imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems.
The Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application is a combination of two separate applications:
1) A multifunctional embedded application platform (MEAP) application that runs on Canon's imageRUNNER multifunction products (MFP)
2) A mobile client application that resides on BlackBerry smartphones
Combined, these applications provide communication between Canon MFPs and Blackberry smartphones, allowing users to perform print and scan functions between the two devices.
Users will be able to scan from the MFP to their Blackberry and print from their smartphone to the MFP.
Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager of Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. said: "The Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile application meets our customers' demands by coupling the ability to manage printing needs from your fingertips while achieving high-quality output results."
The app is free to download via BlackBerry App World.
The MEAP application is available for purchase from Authorized Canon Dealers.
