    With my iPhone, I can simply click print and it will print whatever page I am viewing to my wireless printer. Does WP have this capability? While not a deal breaker, it would be very nice.

    Well I may have found the answer myself. Looks like its not currently possible, at least not as easily and quickly.

    if you have a Brother printer there is an app in the Marketplace called iprint&scan which communicates directly with Brother printers.
    At this time there is no Epson app that I am aware of (I have an Epson).
    Do a search in the Marketplace for your brand printer.
    If there isn't one, write an email to the printer maker - that said, I bet they will hold off driver development for Windows RT.

    I'm not sure if your printer allows this, but some of the wireless ones let you set up an email address that you can just forward an attachment to, and then it'll automatically print that.

    If so, you might be able to at least use that option.

    Yes, there is an Epson product called Epson Connect and if you have a printer on a home net with access to the internet this set up from Epson will give your printer an email address, then you can send docs to the printer via email and it will print....

    works fine on my Epson Workforce 845 AIO.

    Go here and hook up and sign in. You can apparently scan to cloud etc. also.

    Yes, you're looking for printers from HP that have eprint. I have the D110 and can send an email to the printers email address and it prints.

    Hp also has what they call e-print, using an email address to send docs to.

    I'm using an HP, but its no where near good enough on my 8x vs iPhone or Android. I can print from pretty much anywhere on my phone with those 2. With the 8x I have to go through email.

    It works, but its a pain and not very user friendly. With all the Office integration, I hope they fix that in the next update.

    I doubt my l900 will ever see the update for any of it sadly. I've basically sat it aside to collect dust as our home phone.
    I carry a fleet!

    Samsung Galaxy S2
    Lumia 900
    HTC 8X
    iPhone 4S

    HTC EVO 4G LTE


    How's that for a geek pathology!

    I also have the D110 and have setup an email address for it. Works well for me, some limitations but overall it is satisfactory.
    Now I'm looking for a Color LaserJet/ Scanner where I can do something similar.

    Sure, that works. But then, that works with anything that can send an e-mail. It's OK, but not quite the same.
