Available for the Palm OS Platform
PrintBoy Documents to be Demonstrated at PalmSource 2000
- December 11, 2000
- Today, Bachmann Software introduced PrintBoy Documents, a
new software product that leverages Palm™ handheld users' ability
to efficiently manage documents. PrintBoy Documents will be
demonstrated this week during PalmSource™ 2000, the premier
annual conference and trade show for the Palm OS® platform developers
and solution providers.
is the first standalone commercial software product that allows
Palm users to print documents directly from their handheld device.
This versatile new product works with any document converted
to the standard "doc" format. PrintBoy Documents effectively
supports printing of text, html, Word, RTF, and PDF files stored
on any Palm handheld.
While previous PrintBoy
products introduced the ability to print items such as datebook,
address, to do and memo entries, this addition of documents
opens up a whole new level of utility for PDA users. Indeed,
it is the ability to efficiently carry and print documents that
will allow users to replicate their laptops or briefcase full
"The Palm™ handheld
has proven capable of carrying virtually any type of document
the mobile professional needs. Our ability to aid them in wirelessly
printing these documents should give them the ultimate efficiency
seek in this valuable tool," said Glenn Bachmann, company president
and CEO. Bachmann continued, "We believe that carrying documents
is convenient, however reading them on a 3 ˝" screen is not
practical. PrintBoy Documents is the first product that will
allow users to access and/or share their information easily."
PrintBoy users are
expressing their delight with the software. Barbara Levin, a
controller at a non-profit educational institution, remarked,
"I love to write, and I travel frequently. My Palm handheld
enables me to compose on the road, but editing is difficult
on the tiny screen. With PrintBoy Documents, I can effectively
edit my work and share my documents with others. Using both
PrintBoy and PrintBoy Documents, I now can print just about
anything at just about any time!"
Priced at US$19.99,
PrintBoy Documents can be purchased by visiting Bachmann Software's
