ePrint Airprint Support from HP Printers for iPad and iPad 2 Handheld Devices

As a technology leader in many aspects of computing, HP - Hewlett-Packard jumped onboard early with support for Apple's AirPrint wireless printing. Only more recent models - and only about a dozen HP printer's currently offer direct support wireless AirPrint printing from iPad, iPad2, iPhone and recent iPod Touch models.

iPad and iPad2 Compatible Printers

For iPad people on the go or around the house - especially business users - the ability to print from Apple's hand-help tablet may be needed. It wasn't till the recent iOS4 operating system that direct iPhone and iPad printing wirelessly was made officially possible via Apple's AirPrint technology. As with Apple's Bonjour printing protocol - AirPrint's auto-discovery simply announces a printer's availability and presence on your iOS device. iOS5 promises additional improvements to Air-Print support.

AirPrint Compatibility Added To Even More HP Printer Models

Downloading and installing a new firmware update from Hewlett-Packard will allow the the following printer models to gain full support for AirPrint functions:

Since direct, Wi-Fi printing from an iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch is a rather recent development, not all Apps know how to print - or need to. HP has a helpful list of _some_
AirPrint capable apps for iOS4 and iOS5 you might want to check out.

Other Printer Manufacturers Supporting AirPrint

The year ahead should bring broader iPad compatible printing support from other major printer manufacturers. In the meantime, a few commercial apps and hacks exist to make getting printouts from your Apple handheld device easier:

iOS Printing For Canon Printers
If you want to print photos from your iPad to a Canon wireless printer, a Canon application called Easy Photo-Print for iPhone is available. Unfortunately, the app will only print photos, not text documents or web pages - its strictly for pictures.

iPad Printing On Epson Printers
If you use an Epson printer, you can print from your iPad using the Epson iPrint application. Initially released for the iPod, iPrint can now be used with an iPad over a WiFi connection. Epson users can get iPrint at no cost from the App Store.

Lexmark Wireless Printer iPad Solutions
Lexmark printer users can use a iPad print app named Air Sharing HD. The app costs 10 and is just Mac OSX. Air Sharing HD does not access files straight from your iPad. Rather, the app communicates with an email account to print your documents. You can email an iPad document to yourself and then open it in Air Sharing HD to print. Lexmark users can also purchase a $3 direct printing app called ePrint. Again, this one is for Mac users only.

Other AirPrinting Resources

eCamm's Printopia App
eCamm has a neat solution for any functional Mac printer setup: If your Mac can print to it, Printopia will share it whether your printer is directly connected or plugged into your AirPort or Time Capsule. Printopia acts as a 'Bridge' and translates for your printer, allowing it to serve print requests from your iPhone or iPad even -- if it's not an AirPrint-compatible printer. Printopia even supports many password-protected printers. There are also iPad printing applications is PrintCentral, by EuroSmartz or Print Magic by Wellala for $7 USD. This app will print from any printer, including a PC over a wireless connection. PrintCentral costs USD $10 dollars at the App Store and allows you to print web pages, text, graphics, images, and contacts.
