    I was just checking out the new Amazon Fire phone. It even prints. So that leaves just the Windows phone unable to print.

    Oh well.....

    Guys, this horse has been beaten enough. Cloud printing has been available since 7.5 on WP. I use Kumo Print and it works flawlessly. If you have an HP or Brother printer, there are apps for those as well. If you want Network Wi-Fi printing, you can try PrinterShare on iOS & Android but you have to print from within the app so it's very limited. For full printing features over Wi-Fi, the last time that existed was on Windows Mobile. What I mean by full features, that is when you scroll through your file manager and select the item you wish to print.

    Kumo Print allows you to select which items you want to print but it's limited to Google Cloud printers. It's no different than any other current mobile OS.

    Lumia 820:
    1.5Ghz
    Adreno 225
    1GB RAM

    Lumia 820:
    1.0Ghz
    Adreno 305
    512mb RAM

    And I agree with you. But what matters in the end is the battery life in general.
    Nokia most often places a not so good battery for hardware (Lumia 920-5/930-Icon/1020 Could have more mah)
    the hardware isnt that different only small improvements other than ram

    With Microsoft's one vision im sure it wont be long before we have many more features (including printing) that surpass the competition by far... Already there are many compelling reasons to choose a Windows Phone and there will be more soon....

    Is the same hardware of 925.
    So you are saying that the hardware of 520 isn't much diferent of 925? because the hardware of 720 in term of specs, isn't diferent, the same of 820 and 925....

    There have always been Apps in the Windows phone store to do this. They usually work like the Android versions, cloud based printing to an internet connected printer. No need to tag in WP, it's no better or worse.
    As for the iPhone, well as long as you're willing to lug around an overpriced Apple printer it's much more convenient.
