    I have a bluetooth device on my printer...can I print something?

    I have a bluetooth device on my Pixma I90 and use it to print stuff from my laptop...can I do the same via my PDA some-how? I doubt it because of drivers being compatible with my PDA but who knows...

    How about the drivers and software etc.?

    There is no "print" button on the PDA.

    I'd suggest you download HP Mobile Printing, which is a free app that enables this on PPCs (running 2002, 2003, and 2003SE), but HP discontinued it. I have a copy saved at home but not here at work. Maybe someone else can find a link for you (or better yet, post it here).

    Otherwise, HP's site recommends a couple of other programs you can buy to do the same thing:

    So you can't use Voice Command on your PDA with it...

    To Amir, I was trying to install it but I figured it was Palm so the installation wouldn't go through...

    I will try to use this program to see how it is though, thx. Just wish I could use it with Voice Command too but I can temporarily disable it like you said sheureka.

    Everytime I load it ...it says "XXXX File is not a valid windows ce setup file" or something like that...

    Is it because of MS Voice Command? If so, how would I disable it for it to work without deleting it off my system and do I have to disable it every-time I want to use the program?

    Thanks sheureka
