Konica Minolta Business Technologies Inc. announced the availability of PageScope Mobile for Android, an application that allows Android devices to connect wirelessly to the company’s bizhub MFPs.
The announcement follows on the vendor’s announcement last year regarding the availability of PageScope for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
