Utilizing Canon’s wireless Bluetooth technology for mobile travel printers

A lot of people find that adding wireless connectivity to their travel printer is one of the best ways of getting the most out of it as well as increasing its portability. // // The most popular method of wireless data transfer using portable printers by far is Bluetooth; in fact it’s so popular that some products don’t even allow WiFi anymore.  A good example of this is Canon’s iP100 which is Bluetooth only, however it does allow for infrared. One very useful aspect of the iP100 is its ability to allow internal mounting of [...] Read more...

Why a mobile black and white inkjet printer isn’t the best idea

A lot of people who want mobile printing just want a device which is capable of basic black and white text/picture printing (otherwise referred to as monochrome). // // The issue is that most models produced in the last 7-8 years are very advanced, being inkjet based devices capable of advanced tasks such as lab-quality photo printing.  A lot of people who want monochrome–only printing as clear resolutions as well as Bluetooth capabilities would be much better of going for a thermal device as you can find on WPP’s homepage.
