- Bachmann Software & Services is demonstrating its latest array

the annual conference and trade show for Palm OS® platform
developers and solution providers.

new releases are the most comprehensive wireless printing solutions
now available for the Palm handheld, according to Glenn Bachmann,
company president and CEO.
Throughout the four-day
event, Bachmann Software is demonstrating its printing software
directly from the Palm handheld using IRDA adapters and serial
cables to a variety of printers. In addition, Bachmann is also
demonstrating wireless printing from a Handspring Visor using
Bluetoothô technology. Visitors to the Bachmann booth are downloading
demonstration versions of the software and printing their daily
calendars, notes from the show, contact information from vendors,
and product data sheets.
"The interest in
these products at PalmSource continues to be overwhelming,"
Bachmann said. "I firmly believe our products demonstrate our
commitment to becoming the leader in providing convenient, easy-to-use
handheld printing solutions."
also demonstrated PrintBoy via Bluetooth‘ during last month's
COMDEX/Fall 2000 in Las Vegas.
"If you look at
how people use their laptops and PCs, printing continues to
remain a necessary function for computer users, particularly
those who have devices with screens as small as those on a handheld,"
Bachmann said. "People still prefer to read full-sized documents
and share hard copies. Therefore, we are continuing to seek
alliances with hardware and software partners who recognize
the importance of wireless printing. We want to work with them
to develop other functions that add to the versatility of the
Palm OS platform."
