Samsung has launched the Xpress C410W series of printers that are able to connect instantly with your smartphone via NFC and print pics straight away. All you need to do is tap your smartphone on the printer and it will instantly pair - you can even scan and fax documents to contacts from your phone's address book.

The printers use the Samsung Mobile Print app, which supports the likes of Excel spreadsheets to PDF files and Microsoft Office documents. No NFC? Don't like the Samsung app? Then you can use the C410W via Google Cloud Print, which allows you to print from anywhere with any smart device.

If you use a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet with the printer you will be able to print out documents straight from the gallery or even from web pages.

The Xpress C410W series consists of the C410 colour laser printer and the C460 colour laser multi function printer with scanner. Finally you have the C460FW which throws in scan and fax functions on top of the ability to print. Samsung is yet to announce pricing and availability for the three new printers, although we imagine they will be going on sale very soon.
