PlanOn, provider of scanning and portable computer solutions that enhance the mobile office, has launched PRINTSTIK, an ultra portable, Bluetooth enabled printer which introduces true mobility for users.
The PRINTSTIK is a very small full A4 page printer, enabling users to print e-mails, documents and images from a range of mobile devices including laptops, smart phones and PDAs. Users are able to print documents anywhere and anytime while away from the office and on the move.
Doug Verkaik CEO of PlanOn stated, Mobile printers are not a new concept but up until now they have not been designed with the consumer in mind. We developed the PRINTSTIK to meet the consumer demand for a small, lightweight and easy-to-use printer that can be used anywhere, at anytime. With the PRINTSTIK, consumers effectively have a printer in their pocket.
Developed specifically for business professionals and anyone who needs to print whilst on the road, PlanOns PRINTSTIK offers full-feature printing capabilities on a self contained 20 page roll of paper. The PRINTSTIK is extremely user friendly and syncs easily with laptops, PDAs and smart phones to transfer images and documents. Customers can use Bluetooth-enabled wireless connections to print or they can operate the device through a standard USB connection.
The PRINTSTIK uses a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, making it extremely lightweight and compact at just 700g. The product uses Advanced Thermal Technology, printing up to 3 full pages per minute (PPM) on 7-year rated thermal paper.
