HP's latest wireless printer takes advantage of native printer support in Android 4.4 (the so-called KitKat release).

The new HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476 wireless printer was announced today.

It's reportedly the first printer certified to take advantage of a plug-in developed by the Mopria alliance, which aims to makes wireless printing easier from smartphones and tablets with Android 4.4, said David Laing, director of innovation for LaserJet Enterprise Solutions at HP.

A Mopria plugin is designed to let users pass a mobile print command to the M476 without having to go through a separate application such as HP's printer app. Users will be able to press the print icon inside an app, much like on PCs, and then select a wireless printer of choice.

The office printer is priced starting $529.
