    Has anyone found some good hardware that works with the Treo 650 for Real Estate. I wish the BT worked better. If so I could print to the back of the car with out a USB cable. Do any of you use the Treo 650 with hardware that you print from Treo to?

    Thanks,

    i have been tryin to get things together for my wife who is a real estate agent.(im gonna buy her the 650) i just wanted to get all the info before buying, and here is some info i found. if you find out anything else please keep me posted.

    My $91 mobile office and wireless printing solution

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the past, when I needed to prepare documents on the road, I needed to visit Kinkos and rent a computer and printer. Now, I can skip Kinkos and do everything on my Treo.

    I have been able to set up my Treo 650 as a complete mobile office, without spending tons of money, and without using a laptop. I can now (1) grab docs from my desktop; (2) email them to my Treo; (3) edit the docs on the Treo or create new documents from scratch, including long documents; and (4) print out final copies of the document wirelessly.

    Here is my set-up:

    1. For obtaining documents on the road:

    --Sprint Business Connection: allows me to email documents from my desktop to the 650. (Free with my data plan)

    --Win-Hand Anywhere: remote desktop app which is a backup for the Sprint BC app. (Free!)

    2. For modifying E-mailed docs or drafting new docs:

    --Documents to Go (Bundled free with the 650)

    --Wordsmith (good alternative to Docs to Go. I am a longtime registered user of this app, so it was basically free for me on the 650)

    --PalmOne Universal Wireless Keyboard: works great with the Treo 650 for pounding out longer documens via the IR port. ($47 from Amazon)

    3. Printing out docs on the road:

    --Printboy: has the printer drivers for printing directly from the Treo ($39 retail, plus $5 for shipping, minus $30 from Palm's referral program = $14 final price)

    --Canon BJC-80 - small portable battery-powered printer with a built-in IR adaptor for wireless printing. ($30 from ebay, which included the printer, battery pack, and carrying case. I love Ebay for stuff like this)

    Total extra money spent to turn $650 into my mobile office:

    Keyboard: $47
    PrintBoy: 14
    Printer: 30

    Total: $91

    So far, the set-up is working great. I am just needing to adjust some documents/letterhead for the simple PrintBoy font capability.
