Re: Print image via Bluetooth

There is no native support for printing provided on the device.  If you want to print, you will have to

a) Develop a Bluetooth Printer Driver

b) Buy a printer with a BlackBerry Printer Driver

c) Use one of the Server based printing solutions to print to your phone

 

I know that Brother have a BlackBerry printer driver for some of their mobile devices.  I've just seen intention of the Planon Printstik - have a look on the web for this.  There is a company called Integrated Peripherals that I believe do a range of printers to.

 

Re Server based solutions, Replingo and ThinPrint are the ones I've heard off.

 

ThinPrint used to do a BlackBerry standalone printing thing, but I'm not sure whether that is still around.

Re: Print image via Bluetooth

Hi all,

 

 

The idea is to create a Java application that prints a JPG / PNG in an A4 format printer via bluetooth.

I saw that Brother printers only print in mobile format A6 and A7.

Thanks.

Re: Print image via Bluetooth

That is my understanding too.  If you want an A4 page, you need to look elsewhere.
