The integrated card reader allows documents to be uploaded directly from an SD or MMC card. The device's 6 cm touchscreen display helps users to select images or texts to be printed. Thanks to the device's Ethernet capability, this multifunction device can be easily integrated into a network for accessibility from multiple computers.
