BROOMFIELD, CO: In order to make the printing process easy and accessible for Apple users, Brother Mobile Solutions, the subsidiary company of Brother International Corporation, has advanced the features of its RuggedJet 3 Wi-Fi mobile receipt and label printer. By supporting Apple’s AirPrint technology, it enables users to print directly and wirelessly from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch requiring no additional print drivers or interfaces.

The company, provider of mobile printers and other portable printing solutions, is offering the RuggedJet 3 Wi-Fi mobile printer in two versions, the RJ- 3050 and RJ- 3150 label and receipt printers. With this new development, Bother’s RuggedJet 3 joins the RuggedJet 4 Wi-Fi series, company’s earlier product, in delivering AirPrint compatibility. RJ-3 and RJ-4 printer users just have to do a simple, free firmware update to print using Apple devices.

Both the versions are sleek, compact, reliable, flexible, versatile and rich in features but they posses some slight difference, like the RJ- 3050 model is ideal for associate-friendly in-store POS applications while RJ-3150 is good for on-person device for mobile workers needing a two inch or three inch print solution.  Moreover, the new RuggedJet 3 comes with built-in dual wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which not only delivers operational mobility inside, outside or virtually anywhere in the store, but is also ideal for use in multiple environments, like retail label, parking tickets, electronic traffic citations, healthcare labeling and many more.    

Commenting about the added features of the RuggedJet 3, Ravi Panjwani, VP of Marketing and Product Management, Brother Mobile Solutions, states, “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 handled devices, our job is to make mobile printers that connect easily and reliably with those devices- yet simple, and even fun for end users to learn and use.”
