Bachmann Software Launches Wireless Printing for Windows Mobile 5 and Treo 700w Smartphones

New PrintBoy 7.0 enables infrared, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and wireless network printing from the latest Windows Mobile handhelds and smartphones

Sparta, NJ (March 13, 2006)... Bachmann Software (www.bachmannsoftware.com), a leader in wireless productivity software for handhelds and smartphones, today announced PrintBoy 7.0 for Windows Mobile®, an all-new version of its popular wireless printing software. PrintBoy 7.0 now provides wireless document printing for the newest smartphones and handheld computers which run Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 5.0.

PrintBoy 7.0 is a full printing solution for Windows Mobile handhelds and smartphones, offering users the ability to wirelessly print their important documents directly from their handheld to virtually any printer. All popular wireless options are supported, including Wi-Fi (802.11) network printing, Bluetooth printing, and infrared beaming. For customers with printers not already wirelessly accessible through one of these communications options, Bachmann also offers inexpensive infrared and Bluetooth print adapters which quickly and easily upgrade printers for wireless printing.

Designed for Palm Treo 700w Compatibility

In addition to being redesigned for Windows Mobile 5.0, PrintBoy 7.0 also has been produced to be compatible with the latest Windows Mobile smartphones, including the popular Treo 700w from Palm. A new explorer-like file finder, revamped Print Setup wizard, and square-screen support are among the features specifically added with products like the Treo 700w in mind.

“Palm’s new Windows Mobile smartphone with its fast wireless connection, keyboard, and built-in document support make it a natural fit for business users on the go” said Glenn Bachmann, president and founder of Bachmann Software. “Printing is an essential, everyday function for business people worldwide, and PrintBoy 7.0 offers those users the ability to produce business-critical documents, wherever and whenever a hardcopy is needed.”

Compatibility and Technical Requirements

PrintBoy 7.0 works with Windows Mobile 5.0 based handhelds, PDA-phones such as the Palm Treo 700w, HP Mobile Messenger 6500 and 6900, as well as older handhelds and smartphones running Pocket PC 2003.
