A friend of mine is a contractor who wants me to help him go "high tech". Right now, he calls the office several times a day asking for new work orders and then writes them down on a clipboard, so that he can check off the items when they are complete. He was interested in having a small printer in his truck that would be connected via 3G so that the office could send work orders to the printer. He also would not be opposed to using an iPad (or similar) with 3G or his Android phone as an intermediary.
- Are there printers that have 3G built-in? Just want to know, not asking for shopping advice.
- If not, can an iPad print directly to a wireless printer via 802.11 without the use of an access point?
- Would a celluar fax work in this scenario?
