    I hope other printer manufactures pick up on this technology. I dont use HP printers either due to ink longevity. Some of their ink cartridges cost more then their printers. I have Canon and Epson and sold on both.. I love HP's idea here but i dont plan to switch to get a printer function with my iPad..

    More on HP D110a ePrint

    I saw you over on the HP forums Bremen. There are several things I like about this printer. In ink jets I hate the tank and tube plus print head as the clog and waste a ton of ink. This particular inkjet has the head in the cartridge.

    That doesn't stop the reinkers as they have a clever endless ink supply you can add externally if you wanted to go that route for serious printing.

    This printer also has a feature that prevents and empty cart from shutting it down like most of the other have in their printers to force you to go out and replace them as soon as one expires.

    This printer has an ad hock feature where with a laptop you can hook directly to the printer wirelessly without a router or access point. My question to HP is does this feature work with the iPad too?

    I was going to buy one last night but I have bronchitis and did not feel like going out.


    I do not need the features of a high end inkjet as I depend on lasers.
    This is just meant to be a portable printer and I noticed they include a bag for that purpose.

    It seems that every one is selling it for $100 or less even though HP lists it as $130.

    People should be aware it does not work with a VPN, it is either or.

    This printer might be Wireless N only and incompatible with G or B, I am trying to find an accurate answer.


    It is listed on the Apple web site for $130.

    ePrint brings wireless printing to the iPad/iPhone

    ePrint brings wireless printing from any email-capable device to the masses.

    Rippling the glass-like waters of the printer pool, HP is starting to roll out printers that can print from any smartphone, netbook or notebook with access to email services.
    The company’s Photosmart series of printers use ePrint, a technology HP first experimented with on the RIM Blackberry earlier this year. This was tied to the Blackberry server, but the latest iteration opens up the market to other players.
    The move is a response to the massive growth in the smartphone market and the problem of supporting drivers for individual operating systems.
    HP uses a cloud to allocate an email address to each ePrint enabled wireless printer. Simply by sending the print job as an attachment, it is processed through the ePrint cloud. The status of each job can then be monitored remotely to ensure there are no problems.
    HP jumped the gun by releasing printers before the ePrint cloud went live, which irritated some early adopters.
    The service was turned on in time for the unveiling of the latest model in Mumbai, India, yesterday where local fashion photographer Vikram Bawa took pictures which were then emailed to the Photosmart Plus eAll-In-One B110e printer. Additionally, friends of attendees were invited to email in other documents for printing.
    The system has its limitations because it can only handle documents from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Excel or plain text files and Adobe PDF formats.
    For images, it supports bmp, gif, jpg, png and tif files. It does not support web page printing or encrypted and password-protected documents.
    There is also a 5MB limit to the email, including attachments, but within this ePrint supports a maximum of 10 attachments per email.
    The ePrint service is a free feature of the current range of Photosmart printers.

    I just bought one of these at Wal-mart for $89.00. I plan to use it on my iPad and other devices. Will post comments on it after I try it.

    I posted a new thread on my new HP D110a printer, but the post seems to have screwed up somehow. I'll post what I posted there to this thread to see if it works.

    -----------

    I can now print directly from my iPad to my new HP D110a printer without using a computer or any cables. It's pretty cool! :)

    The new HP110a wireless Internet printer doesn't require any drivers or any cables except power. The printer was assigned an email address at the factory and I merely have to email documents to it (of less than 5MB) and it will print them, as long as the printer has a wifi-connection.

    I tried printing from two iPad apps that allow you to email your documents: Apple's Pages and an app called Notepad Pro that allows you to type text and draw images. In a matter of a few minutes, I had hard copies of my documents that were created on my iPad and never existed on a "real" computer. Sweet!

    I did have to create a new gmail account to get it to work, though. While my YahooMail account would print if I sent messages directly from the email program on the iPad, Yahoo seems to intercept the messages from the apps and doesn't send them out. Very annoying. But gmail worked fine.

    Also, if you just want to print text, or even just an email message, the printer prints a cover page for each job sent, which contains the content of the email message. No headers, no dates or times, or email paths, just the text of the message, as if the text were a document. So you can just send a text email to the printer and it will print that for you, even without adding an attachment.

    Unfortunately, the range of supported document types is small, but includes the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, etc.), as well as PDF and simple text. I don't recall if there were others. But both of my iPad word processors can export to Word and PDF, so I'm good to go.

    I'm rather pleased. I bought the printer today at Wal-Mart for $89.00. I'm not expecting to print my novel with it, so the possibly expensive print cartridges isn't really going to bother me, I don't think.

    You are also supposed to be able to print to the printer over your local wifi connection from a computer, but I couldn't get that to work. I installed the driver on my computer (which is required for direct wifi printing, but not email printing) and the driver was fine, but when it was looking for the printer IP address, it couldn't find it. I know it was the right address, because the printer tells you the address in the little display on the front. You're supposed to just type that into your computer and it works. Well, it doesn't. Oh well, that's not why I bought the printer--and I can still email documents from my desktop computer anyway.

    Oh, you can also set up a list of approved email addresses from which your printer can accept documents. Or you can leave it open so anybody can send them.

    Emailing photos to the printer also works very well. You just pug 4x6-inch photo paper in it and email the photos and they just print. Vefy cool.

    Curiously, the printer comes inside a specially-made tote bag for portability, along with a little shaving-kit-sized bag for the power supply (which is lightweight). This thing was designed for portability! Very nice! I took some photos that I'll attach, if I can figure out how.

    So, I think it's very cool and certainly an excellent tool to add to my iPad.

    Dar

    Been using the HP iPrint app since day one on my iPad.

    I can print to both HP wireless printers from anywhere in the house via WiFi.

    It's an iPhone app, but works on the iPad just fine.
