Software allows Bluetooth enabled mobile phones and PDA to print to a non-Bluetooth printer

Software allows Bluetooth enabled mobile phones and PDA to print to a non-Bluetooth printer
Print Bridge allows your desktop or laptop computer to be used a bridge between a cell phone, PDA and any printers connected to the computer.

Print Bridge supports a variety of formats. For images Print Bridge supports out of the box BMP, JPEG, PNG and TIFF. For other files Print Bridge natively supports plain text, RTF, vCard, vCalendar, vMessage and vNote. When printing images, Print Bridge has a variety options. On the default setting Print Bridge will scale the image up and rotate it for the best fit to the page, or Print Bridge can print images at either their original size or a custom size set by you.

The only problem I see on the Windows XP version (the Mac OS version is a little different) is that Print Bridge relies on Microsoft's Wireless link. We all know that Microsoft's Bluetooth Wireless Link implementation is not the best one and very limited in terms of Bluetooth profiles available.

Devices compatible with this software are:
  • Palm with Bluetooth
  • Sony Ericsson P800
  • Sony Ericsson T68i
  • Sony Ericsson T610

    The Mac OS X version adds the Nokia 3650 to this list - I'm not sure why.
