The printer adapter enables printing with a wide range of emerging
client devices enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology, such as
mobile phones, digital cameras, PDAs, and notebook computers.
Incorporating the recently released Bluetooth Basic Printing Profile
(BPP), Basic Imaging Profile (BIP), and xHTML print technology, the
printer adapter vastly simplifies the end-user’s wireless printing
experience by eliminating the need for printer-specific drivers.

“We are proud to have been selected by HP to co-develop this
product based on next generation Bluetooth wireless technology,” said
Harold Yin, executive vice president and general manager of TROY’s
Wireless and Connectivity Solutions. “Our mutual goal is to enable and
proliferate printing using Bluetooth wireless technology. With the
number of client devices enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology
emerging, we believe that enabling printing from phones, PDAs,
cameras, and notebooks using Bluetooth wireless technology to any
printer is a key application.”

“Providing walk-up-and-print capabilities is an important part of
HP’s overall strategy to provide solutions to an increasingly mobile
workplace,” said Don Ciaglo, director of research and development for
IPG Connectivity Solutions, HP. “HP selected TROY as its development
partner based on their experience in providing printer connectivity
solutions and their experience and capabilities in Bluetooth wireless

TROY will release its printer adapter with Bluetooth wireless
technology in December. Both companies’ products still support
printing utilizing legacy profiles such as SPP, OPP and HCRP.
