    Is there a portable printer available so that can print email from my Treo 270 when I am in my car? Thanks.

    Most portable (laptop) printers support IRDA printing of data beamed to them. They aren't cheap, though. I've seen small printers that use rolls of thermal paper at Fry's, but don't know if they are available through other channels.
    Getting your mail application to beam individual mail messages out is probably the biggest obstacle - you may need to copy and paste into a memo, then beam the memo out.

    I saw this SiPix PDU printer for 39.99 on www.compgeeks.com.
    I have not tried one, but like to try this one.

    Wonderful. Now you tell me. I just received mine from www.buy.com. I paid $133.00 for the printer, 2 boxes of paper including shipping. Even though I did pay a lot more for it, it is awesome!!! I highly recommend it. Although I don't think it works with Palm OS 5. I installed the program on my wifes Zire 71 and couldn't get it to print. I didn't try very hard either.

    I was going to buy one of these today, but I just spoke to SiPix and was told it's not compatible with OS 5. He wouldn't commit to it being compatible in the future, although he said there should be a driver out somtime.

    Since I'm considering dumping my Treo 300 for a Tungsten C, or at minimum will upgrade to the next Treo, I'd rather not buy a device that may not work with my new hardware.
