Codehost to develop Linux and Palm OS PDA drivers for AM Tech Printers

Software solutions provider Codehost Inc. and transaction printer manufacturer AM Tech Co., Ltd have established a strategic relationship where Codehost will develop drivers and applications for AM Tech’s lines of mobile thermal printers. AM Tech’s infrared printers will be available for PDA-POS terminals running Palm OS and the Linux operating system.

Under the terms of the agreement Codehost will also extend their development and support services to AM Tech’s U.S. and international clients.

“We feel that due to our extensive developer and support base we are in a good position to deliver high quality services to companies like AM Tech and their customers,” said Codehost Systems Engineer Rafael Barrero. “Providing full lifecycle support to our clients includes helping them meet the unique needs of their customers.”

The first phase of this agreement will be to develop drivers for AM Tech’s Mobile Mate printers to function with Symbol Technologies PDAs running the Palm OS. This advancement will enable the Mobile Mate printer line to print from bar code, receipt, e-mail, spreadsheet and numerous other applications required by AM Tech’s printer users.

AM Tech printers will be exhibited using Codehost software at the 2002 Consumer Electronics Show (Jan. 8-11) and Symbol’s 2002 Worldwide conference Jan. 7-13). Both events will be held in Las Vegas.
