Question
Dear Vipin

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barcode_printer

Can we use Wireless Technology viz Bluetooth or Wi-fi for connecting Smartphone Device to Wireless Barcode Printer ?.

Smartphone Device will detect the Barcode Printer via Wi-fi or Bluetooth. Both devices will be Wi-fi or Bluetooth enabled.

Smartphone Barcode software application will generate the Unique Barcode for the product selected and redirect the output for Barcode printing to the Wireless Barcode Printer.


Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi

It is definitely possible in theory though practically useless. Barcode printers are usually used at big warehouses or at retail & office outlets, where a computer would be a pre requisite.

Since the computers have a larger memory, bigger screen and substantially superior processing power, using a smartphone would be a retrospective step.

Experience

I own 4 Retail showrooms in NOIDA & Delhi, where we deal in Smart Phones, Digital Cameras, D-SLRs & accessories. We have been in the business for over 16 years now. I have gained my knowledge over a period of time by using and comparing the Cameras first hand and understanding the intricacies involved by testing them myself. I have been conducting personal training sessions for my DSLR customers and otherwise, at a cost. I have written an article in the newspaper on 'How to buy a Digital Camera' (vipin-joshi.blogspot.com)and have been interviewed on a news channel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmN7WsmKgSE)
