Bachmann Software Introduces Enhanced Wireless Printing
For The Palm OS® Platform

New PrintBoy 2.2 to be Demonstrated at PalmSource 2000

SPARTA, N.J., - December 11, 2000 - Today, Bachmann Software introduced its newest version of their popular PrintBoy Software, with PrintBoy 2.2 version. In addition to the previous ability to print calendars, addresses, to-do lists, memos and clipboard items, PrintBoy 2.2 includes 4 important new features:

  • Full Graphic support for Hewlett Packard (HP) DeskJet™ products and PCL 3 compatibles, such as the HP DeskJet 350™ and all DeskJet™ models
  • A bundled system that includes PrintBoy 2.2 packaged with an Actisys™ IRDA adapter; capable of upgrading printers to accept infrared communication
  • Better support for the Greenwich Instruments™ serial cable
  • Support for the Handspring™ serial cable using the Greenwich Instruments™ cable

Bachmann Software will showcase this new version of PrintBoy will be demonstrated this week during PalmSource™ 2000, the premier annual conference and trade show for the Palm OS® platform developers and solution providers.

The company will be performing live demonstrations of PrintBoy to multiple printers, including a HP DeskJet 350™ mobile printer using the internal infrared port, the Actisys™ IRDA adapter and Greenwich Instruments™ cable.

The introduction of version 2.2 marks the first time PDA users can graphically print to an HP DeskJet 350™ mobile printer; one of the most likely choices of the mobile professional.

PrintBoy users such as Jeff Arnold, an instructor at Peripheral Vision Infosystems, Inc., expressed his delight with the software, "I use PrintBoy to print job aids and other handouts on-the-fly when I'm in the classroom, without the hassle of having to set up my laptop. The product has been a real time saver - and lifesaver at times. Oh, it's always good for getting those additional 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' from my students."

Priced at just US$19.99, PrintBoy 2.2 can be ordered from Bachmann Software's on-line store at www.bachmannsoftware.com or by calling (973) 729-9427.
