Is it possible to print (to a serial printer) directly from an SL5500?

Heh. Anything's possible.
In theory, yes. You'd need a serial cable ($40), that's the easy part. Then you'd need a driver for the printer. That'd be the tough part.
Could you use a printer attached to another system, maybe with a wireless network in between? Or could you save up your printing until you drop the 5500 in a cradle and move the files to a system with a printer?

Thanks for the reply. I can print to the printer on a Linux box simply by cat 'ing a file to the printer. I'll try the
same on the PDA. But where can I find one of these $40 cables? So far I've only found a $120 Sharp IO to serial

This app is for a convience store distributor. The invoices need to be printed on site. No wireless network connectivity.

SerialIO sells a Zaurus RS232 cable for $35 (plus shipping, of course). More info here.
