Default Mobile Printing

I just got a the curve and was wondering if there is a small mobile printer that I can purchase that I can print e-mails to. Is this possible?

Wirelessly posted (8310; The Juggernaut) will allow printing of some document types to a internet-based printer, but not emails.

The Planon PrintStik is a battery-operated Bluetooth thermal printer.

Being thermal, the paper's a little more expensive but it never needs ink.

You can pair it with a notebook and print everything.

Right now - and for what I'm guessing will be the next 4-6 weeks - its early-stages BlackBerry drivers will let you print text from e-mail - and optionally kill white space to fit more on a page.

The issue is that HTML details need O/S 4.5 - Planon is a new member of the BlackBerry Alliance and working feverishly on more full-service BlackBerry printer drivers - and until they're out, positioning this as primarily for notebooks - but I've had one for months and it does work.

It's about the size of a roll of wax paper split the long way.
