Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

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

You can google for many other solutions that are abounding from the rapid use of small hand-held computers in the firm.

Good Luck.
