Easy Printing from Mobile Devices

What good is a hand-held computer if you can't print? Even if it's just the occasional boarding pass, you're bound to need to print from your mobile device. Doc has found this to be more of a problem than it should be. As an international man of mystery, I print boarding passes from all sorts of exotic places and from a variety of pad, pods, and droids.

What good is a hand-held computer if you can't print? Even if it's just the occasional boarding pass, you're bound to need to print from your mobile device. Doc has found this to be more of a problem than it should be. As an international man of mystery, I print boarding passes from all sorts of exotic places and from a variety of pad, pods, and droids.

I now know to look for the local Aim Mail Center and I can print to my heart's content, whether it's boarding passes or top-secret plans. Soon many Aim stores will be upgraded to include a variety of mobile and over-the-internet printing services.

The new equipment, Ricoh Hot Spot Multifunction Printers (MFPs), can print from a variety of hand-held devices without the need for special drivers. (I once had a special driver but that's a whole 'nother story).

"Ricoh HotSpot MFPs fit into the future vision of our AIM Mail Center stores, which are becoming business solution centers rather than shipping centers," said Michael Sawitz, CEO, AIM Mail Centers.  "Ricoh has been a key technology provider to us for over 15 years, and we are excited to work with them to upgrade our equipment to Ricoh HotSpot MFPs, which hit right at the heart of what we're trying to accomplish as we shift our business model."

"Today's smartphone is essentially a hand held computer, but it lacks the ability to print. Ricoh's HotSpot MFPs allow mobile technology to truly function as a computer, opening a whole new world of options for those on the go," said Matt Sakauchi, Vice President, Office Printer Business Group, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "AIM Mail Centers is one of the first businesses of its kind to fully embrace mobile technology with Ricoh HotSpot MFPs. We are excited to roll out the installations, which will be completed at all stores over the next four years."

Doc gets excited about rolling out installations, too, so I appreciate Matt's enthusiasm. But I'm even more excited to think the day may be coming when I can just print without any hassle.
