Technology Snapshot: Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brother International Corporation and provider of mobile, desktop and industrial printing, labeling and safety signage solutions, has launched a full suite of next-generation, full-page PocketJet printers. The PocketJet 8 series builds upon almost 30 years of reliable functionality in the millions of legacy units sold, and includes enhancements to print speed and quality, USB Type-C connectivity, and a broader range of compatible media, including thicker paper and labels.
