CONNECTIVITY: Bluetooth printing application (for Nokia Symbian phones only)

Ouch, that hurts... Not only that no Microsoft Smartphone has Bluetooth onboard today (except the to be released Orange SPV E200) also printing from Smartphones isn't planned so far.

Now Nokia and HP co-developed a solution for Nokia's Symbian based 7650 and 3650 cellphones:

This easy-to-use wireless printing application enables you to print a wide variety of content types, including photos, text messages, emails, contact lists, calendars, and notes, to Bluetooth Basic Print Profile enabled (BPP) printers available from companies such as Hewlett Packard.

You can now easily share printed pictures with friends, print a copy of your calendar or email for a colleague or family member, or back up a contact list to hard copy.

This makes me seriously envious :| and I hope that either Microsoft or a 3rd party developer like FieldSoft picks up that idea for Microsoft Smartphones too, as soon as Bluetooth enabled phones are available. But also an IrDA support wouldn't be that bad since a lot of printers already has IrDA ports!

Cheers ~ Arne
