Is there some way you can print from the BB Bold? For example if I get emails etc...Is there some app out there that can allow me to connect my printer via the USB port on the BB. Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just really need to know.
Yes, you can print from a BlackBerry using Bluetooth. You can even fax from a BlackBerry. We have corporate solutions, and hosted solutions for individuals too. If you want to know more, please visit Cortado's web site, or if you want to contact me directly you can at email@example.com.
Also, just to clarify, Cortado is a division of ThinPrint, so all of you were correct in pointing out where our solution came from.
By the way, you cannot print over USB from a BlackBerry. RIM designed the USB port to act as a slave port, so you are unable to push print jobs over it. Plus, a BlackBerry does not have enough processing power to directly print anything more complex than simple text. The PDF solution that Shedrock posted about will not work. If you want real solutions, come talk to me...
There's a difference between connecting to the internet over a wifi network and actually being able to navigate within that network. Not sure how the BB handles this, but it is different from a software standpoint.
There was an app on app world that let you make changes to HP printers in ones office as a joke. I think its in the entertainment section. If they can do this, I would think that a wifi and/or bluetooth print function would be out there. But if I am on the road traveling, I have been forwarding docs to a hotmail, yahoo etc email account on the hotel's free business center and then printing it out. It works in a pinch, but if you need to print out a confirmation number when entering information, its still an issue.
