Epson has just made an announcement concerning its Connect printers which are touted to be able to synchronize sans wires with a couple of tablets from Amazon, namely the Kindle Fire HD as well as the Kindle Fire HDX. What does this mean for the end user? Basically, owners of either tablet will be able to print out their important documents without having to worry about the hassle of hooking up to the printer with a physical cable, which is a good thing since it would result in a whole lot less clutter around the table.
As the Epson Connect line will come with support for a couple of Amazon Kindle Fire models, the native printer support in Android 4.4 KitKat will in due time enable both tablets to play nice, sans wires, with other compatible printers, too. If you were to take the Nexus 5 as an example, it already features Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box, where it can then detect the presence of an HP printer automatically, followed by downloading and installing the required software so that one can print straight from Google Docs on the spot. Just bear in mind that your Kindle tablet will need to be updated to Fire OS 3.1 beforehand.
