PlanOn’s Mobile Enhanced Print Application enables users of BlackBerry smart phones to print practically any Web page or e-mail attachment using one of the company’s thermal printers. These portable printers connect directly to a phone, but until now only basic text files, such as e-mail messages, could be printed from a BlackBerry. The new application converts PDFs, word-processing documents, image files, and more into a printer-ready format using a remote server and transmits the result back through the device to the mobile printer.
