    Printing with the Ipad

    Hi guys, new to the forum and an anxiously awaiting Saturday. I have a pickup time at 10:30 AM.

    I have a wireless bluetooth HP printer, will I be able to print from anything I want from my ipad?

    Thanks

    I have the same printer and there is an app for the iphone that allows wireless printing.
    I guess the same app will be available for the ipad on the day of launch or not long after.

    I have a HP C7180 Wireless all in one printer. I'll be sure to test out the printing functions from the iPad and post the results

    The most difficult thing in a proper printing job is for the computer to be able to access the printer's specific functions. Only an installed driver will do a good job.
    How the iPad will allow that is still an unresolved question.

    you don't think iWork will have printing capabilities?

    I have never had to install a driver on my mac to print...and my printer is a TOTAL pain to get working on windows....so as long as it has the same drivers as the mac and is updated the same as the mac it should be just fine.

    Me is a little the reverse i have an HP (3in1) and when i upgrade to 10.6, and from that moment the printer refuse to print with my mac, Hp have update the driver but the scan won't work when it plug to my time machine ... so i have to bring my MBP to my time machine and plug in directly .... but it's the only one trouble i have so compare to all Windoze bug it's just a joke

    Concerning the iPad i have no idea how he will print

    This is where you early adopters can do a public service by letting Apple and vendors know what works, what works but not so well, and what doesn't work at all.

    It's kind of funny how some people think if you are an early adopter, it means you're going to meet with all kinds of problems (regardless of the product). The truth of the matter is when u get hundreds of thousands of the product out the door, and the thousands of software/hardware combinations, incompatibilities and bugs are found. Fortunately, they are usually squashed pretty quickly. People who think that because bugs or problems are found, there is something wrong with the product don't understand the nature of the beast. It's a giant computer universe and its impossible to test all the possible permutations.

    This will be a big area that Apple will have to address if they haven't. There appears to be a couple of printing apps out there - but they look basic and reviews are very mixed.
