Printing on tap.
AirPrint on iPad makes it really easy to print your email, and documents. There’s no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect. With just a few taps on your iPad, you can go from viewing something onscreen to holding a printed copy. And because all the printing takes place in the background, there’s no waiting around while it prints. Instead, you can start printing and then go back to flicking through photos, surfing the web, or doing whatever you were doing before. Caveat you need a new(er) HP AirPrint compatible printer or Apple’s new OS and Printersharing enabled Apple AirPrint for HP printers demo + HP’s ePrint enabled printers and Apple’s AirPrint

What is the difference between Apple’s AirPrint and HP’s ePrint?
|Apple’s AirPrint allows iPhone, iPad and iPod touch customers to print wirelessly to a local printer on their wireless network through an embedded OS print function. HP ePrint allows for printing from anywhere in the world from any mobile device to an HP ePrint enabled printer using the HP cloud – that means the customer can attach a file or document to an email and send it to the printer’s individual email address. Both solutions remove the need for drivers or software downloads.|
