Ricoh Americas (LSE:RIH) has unveiled its new line of HotSpot printers able to print documents from any wireless-enabled location or device. The SP C410DN-KP color printer and SP 4100N-KP monochrome model provide reliable laser printing from laptops, cell phones or PDAs without the need to download or install drivers or additional software.

The two printers leverage Ricoh's Embedded Software Architecture and leading developer of mobile printing solutions PrinterOn's PrintSpots mobile printing software. All printer enhancements are preconfigured and software preloaded, allowing for quick setup and little technical support. Each printer has its own Web page to upload files to be printed, and e-mail address to which files can be forwarded for printing.

"These new printers fill an essential need for all types of organizations who seamlessly want to integrate this technology into their existing network infrastructure," Ann Moser, senior vice president, printing solutions division at Ricoh Americas, said in a statement.
