Today the Communications Group at Siemens AG announces its intent to strategically partner with Canon, the leader in the photo printer market. Understanding that the compatibility of their products offer consumers advanced photography options with Direct Printing, users of high-resolution camera phones, such as the Siemens S65 and SF65 will be able to conveniently print cable-free with Canon photo printers such as the PIXMA iP90 and the SELPHY DS700. Using existing connectivity technology standards, such as Bluetooth wireless technology and IrDA, makes this possible without using a PC.
This partnership combines the best of both the photographic and mobile phone worlds in one sleek communications solution. Images captured with Siemens high-resolution camera phones are sent directly to the printer via standard connectivity technologies like IrDA or Bluetooth technologies to produce high quality prints.
Sharing pictures and photo albums is easier with this new compatibility of technology. Images taken with Siemens camera phones can be printed in any location thanks to the transportability of the lightweight printers. The images which offer a resolution of up to 1.3 mega pixels can be printed with a superb quality using Canon inkjet printers.
