Cellular printer

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I've done a lot of Googling on this already, but none of my results so
far are very conclusive or cohesive.

The goal is to have a printer, located probably in a truck (running on
batteries or connected with an AC adapter), that can be printed to
from... anywhere. A computer back at the office, a laptop at a customer

Since there is apparently no such thing (yet) as a cellular-enabled
printer, my present idea is a PDA with a cellular Internet connection,
and a Bluetooth printer.

Is this actually possible?

Finding a PDA with Bluetooth capability doesn't seem to be a problem.
Getting a printer with Bluetooth isn't a problem, either. Where I'm
stuck is a PDA that can host a shared printer on its own Internet

Thoughts, suggestions?

I would have thought someone somewhere would have done this by now...

To be honest, I'd use an old laptop with a wire connected printer.  It's
cheaper and more flexible in terms of what you can print.  Stick in a
cellular PC Card.  If you go for an always on option, you can set the
printer up as a shared one on the laptop, and away you go.
