Can an application be developed that captures MMS images on the device and send it to the printer.

Obviosly, for this mobile device should be able to be connected to printer.

Let us say if I connect my cell phone to a printer through USB port. In that case, now I will be treating my cell phone as a PC so that I can transfer an image stored on it to a printer. Is it possible ?

If anyone from you have an idea, share it with me pls...

Every thing is possible -- it just takes a lot of work. I suppose that you could connect to the printer via bluetooth or infrared. Then from the J2ME app, you can open a serial connection to the printer. You can then send PCL or PS print commands to print whatever data you need to print. But to convert an image to PCL/PS on the fly could be a very difficult task.

I guess it is easier if you just print from the phone's bulit-in print utility (Nokia 6600 has one).

Yes Michael, I can very well do so using Bluetooth/Infrared.

But I mentioned I want to do this using USB port. I want my cell phone to be connected to the printer through USB and fire print on printer...
