So Airprint is ready to work with one of these new HP printers, but does that mean that's our only option, to get a new AirPrint-enabled printer? Or can that feature be added to my older HP wireless printer? Are there other options coming?

I have the same question. My Brother 1140 Wireless Laser is invisible to Airprint . . . any ideas for a fix?

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Turns out only 11 HP printers support AirPrint right now. I'm very angry my one year old Canon Pixma MP620 printer isn't compatible. Hopefully it's just a firmware update away soon! Apple's new AirPrint for iPhone and iPad works with only 11 printers | Technology | Los Angeles Times

After all the hype about AirPrint and the ability to print from the ipad, I am very disappointed! I have a new Epson wireless all-in-one printer and it's invisible on the IPAD. I am hoping Epson will update it's Iprint app for the IPAD soon. Wireless printing from the IPad shouldn't be so difficult. It's one of those things that make you go, hmmmmm.

I really have no idea what I'm talking about here but I'm guessing that it's the massive size of all those print drivers that usually get loaded on your laptop or pc that are now having to reside with the printer? Maybe that's the issue? Like I said, I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I'm guessing there must be a good reason this is taking so long and so much hoop jumping to work.

I tried one of the print apps for the iPad and it was terrible. It found my wireless HP printer just fine, but the print that came out was all messed up when it came to quality and formatting. Just not acceptable.

This may solve your problem re printing. I have tried the free trial and it works like a dream on my 3gs running 4.2. I will be buying the full version. I think it's a bargin.

I've read great reviews about Printopia. But does my MacBook Pro need to be on for it to work? I'm guessing that it does. If so, that's the only hiccup for me as I don't have a desktop and don't leave the laptop on all the time.

Ironically my Kodak printer died (pieces of crap, I would never recommend them) so I just ordered this from Amazon:

Amazon.com: HP Envy 100 e-All-in-One D410a Printer (CN517A#B1H): Electronics

Airprint compatible and looks sweet. Should be here tomorrow.

That's probably going to be the case for any of the printers other then the few HPs that are compatible or new versions of other manufacturers printers once they release versions that are truly AirPrint compatible.

I am very pleased with Printopia, as to the question about using it, see my previous post.
