Abstract

The alphanumeric display pagers of today and the expected new and more versatile alphanumeric paging products of the future provide the subscriber with broader and increasing levels of information content. As a result, the subscriber can receive very detailed graphic, tabular and paragraph structured messaging which was not possible on earlier vintage alphanumeric products. It is very desirable to have the ability to better utilize this increased information. This suggests the end user should have a method of archiving the received messaging to a permanent storage medium. It is not always desirable to try and copy by hand the exact details given on the multiple screens (small display) of the pager. Also, the presently available printer accessories for pagers have perhaps only paper with a 20 character width capability and/or the paper used is sensitive to heat discoloration and therefore not suitable for permanent record keeping. The ideal medium facilitates the storage, retrieval, manipulation and viewing of received information through a personal computer.
