Get the benefits and value associated with using today’s smartphone and tablet devices. The new iMZ™ printers now support Bluetooth® connectivity to Apple® iOS, as well as Android™, Windows® Mobile and BlackBerry® platforms. Print Touch™ simplifies

Bluetooth pairing and launches Web-based help pages with Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled devices to provide a trouble-free user experience. Regardless of your choice—a smartphone, tablet or handheld—Zebra‘s new iMZ220 and iMZ320 printers are there to support your 2-inch and 3-inch receipt-printing business needs.  In addition to supporting the most popular operating systems of today’s smartphones and tablets, the new iMZ printers’ Link-OS™ software solutions rapidly configure, monitor, and integrate

Zebra printers with your system.  Using Profile Manager with AirWatch Connector, you can quickly connect your printer with the AirWatch device management system via WLAN. Utilize your current infrastructure with one tool for management of your mobile devices.

Building on this experience, you can create printing applications for the Apple, Windows®, Android, WinCE, WinMobile and BlackBerry platforms with the Link-OS Software Development Kit (SDK). Backed by a full range of Zebra software, it has never been easier to produce crisp, clear receipts—whatever the setting.
