Because user-defined receipt and invoice applications can be hosted on the printers, there is no need to use a host computer. For in-premise or field-mobility applications in which a host computer is used, the PB printers offer Bluetooth or 801.11b/g secure wireless connectivity as well as serial and USB wired connectivity.
The two-, three- and four-inch printers allow a mobile logistics workforce to print high-quality, graphically complex receipts. The printers can withstand wide temperature ranges, high humidity and drops of 6 ½ feet.
Intermec says the printers will be available for volume shipment in North America in the third quarter of 2009.
