Press Release

Dec-20-2013

Leesburg, Virginia (PRBuzz.com) December 19, 2013 -- Blue Bamboo, an innovative electronic payment solution provider releases the OTG (on-the-go) support for P25 series of mobile printers with Android devices. Customers now can use Android smart devices to connect Blue Bamboo PocketPOSa?¢ P25 series of printers via OTG cable.

"USB on-the-go, often abbreviated USB OTG or just OTG, is a specification that allows USB devices such as digital audio players or mobile phones to act as a host. "On any USB connection there is always a host and a slave. Most mobile devices marketed today are slaves therefore unable to communicate to each other over USB. Specifically, P25 series of receipt printers are USB slave devices, and OTG acts as the USB host to control P25 printers.

Bluetooth is among the most common alternatives to USB communications but it comes with a higher price tag since it required two devices equipped with Bluetooth modules. When it comes to smart phones or tablets this means having a higher end device hence a higher price; same is valid for peripherals.

Solution providers are constantly looking for ways of reducing their solution's cost. To implementing OTG can to a great extent to help achieve this goal.

Guillermo Lizasoain, Blue Bamboo CTO commented: a€?Blue Bamboo is dedicated to offering customers user-friendly solutions in order to meet customersa€? need. OTG serves as a bridge to connect Android smartphones or tablets with P25 family of printers. OTG USB allows system integrators to choose lower end mobile devices while eliminating need of having Bluetooth capable peripherals both major contributors to cost of mobile payment and otherwise solutions. When focusing on cost savings, system integrators will greatly benefit from OTG based solutions."
