Samsung's second IFA 2013 press conference

After mobile has had all the attention the previous day, Samsung will use this conference to make announcements across the rest of its business.

    That's it for fridges. Next up, an NFC printer/scanner/fax machine combo.
  • Jason Jenkins 9/5/2013 9:47:22 AM
    What could be better than fridges? Printers!

    Paul Fox from Samsung's print operating arrives on stage, to explain the product. 'Our customers tell us loud and clear that they need to have the ability to print.'

    Smart phone and tablet users are developing more prints than those who don't own them, according to stats from analysts. That's a 'great opportunity' for Samsung, apparently. Never miss a trick, do they?

    Mobile printing - I've seen this demoed many, many times over the years. Never met anyone that wanted to do it.
  • Luke Westaway 9/5/2013 9:49:27 AM
    This is the Samsung Express C460. It's an NFC-enabled laser printer, which apparently is a world first!
  • Josh Miller 9/5/2013 9:49:49 AM
  • Luke Westaway 9/5/2013 9:49:55 AM
    It's out later this month. You'll always remember where you were when you first heard about the world's first NFC-enabled laser printer.
  • Josh Miller 9/5/2013 9:50:26 AM
  • Luke Westaway 9/5/2013 9:50:36 AM
    'Simplicity is the driver to this,' says Samsung. You can print by tapping your smart phone on the printer, using NFC magic.

    'As the world's printing needs change, we'll continue to develop more solutions to meet them.' Like the Justice League, always watching, ever vigilant.
  • Josh Miller 9/5/2013 9:51:51 AM
  • Luke Westaway 9/5/2013 9:52:31 AM
    We're wrapping up now. That's all the announcements.
  • Luke Westaway 9/5/2013 9:52:54 AM
    And it's all over. The TVs were quite interesting, right?
  • Nick Hide 9/5/2013 9:54:01 AM
