Usually there is no firmware or software application PRINT interface on these reader & tablet devices, therefore there would be no corresponding Menu item on any application...

However - that doesn't mean that some app might be out there in the general marketplace... but doubt you would ever see it listed in the fenced marketplaces like Kindle Fire.

The answer appears to b NO. I was thinking about the same thing. Well, one cannot have everything. BTW, can iPad be 'connected' to any printer?

My friend has an ipad2 and she says she can connect to print to only certain wireless printers

Your best bet may be an HP printer. Not one that is necessarily WiFi but one from the past couple years with their ePrint technology that allows you to print from most android devices and iPhones.

I would recommend the 6500A (PLUS model if you want WiFi for your computers).

I am tracking this thread, and find it interesting as a topic, as I am running my Nook with the N2A card for full Android - and there are lots of "printing" apps.

One thing that I find interesting - is what are you expecting to happen AFTER your "device" can physically connect to some local wireless printer ????

Where is the PRINT menu, on the email, browser, stockmarket, RSS reader, ebook reader, magazine page, etc ???

It's one thing to get connected in the basement, but then how do you "push the PRINT button" to get the elevator running....

The HP eprint uses an email address for the printer via the outside HP service, so you email your docs to the printer, but not sure how that would work while viewing webpages or other viewers of materials, again since there is no PRINT menu or button within these apps.

Yes, but with some exceptions. You can connect your printer to the google cloud print. Then use an app called easyprint EasyPrint from the amazon market. Took about 5 minutes to set everything up and then it worked great for me!

So Easyprint requires that you have a computer, running Chrome, turned on and connected to the Internet, with an attached printer.

Will this system work as a "print buffer" if the computer isn't on at the moment?

And is it really more convenient than just emailing yourself the document and then printing it at the computer yourself?

Rachel says:
Is it more convenient than emailing it to myself, yes I think so. Sometimes someone else in the house may be on the computer but YMMV.

The documents will be saved in the printer queue is the printer is offline.

Ideally if all goes as it should you can print from anywhere, (i.e. I am at work and my kids who are at home need their schedule's for the day or forgot to have me sign a form. They go to the printer and there it is. No fussing with emails)

I suggest you go back and read the entire thread... just responding with "yes" gives a very wrong impression, unless you provide very specific details on how or why you think this will work.

good idea!

There is a free HP eprint app available in the Amazon App store. It will allow almost any HP wireless printer to be used with the Fire, not just newer ones with e-print built in. I have an old (7 years old) HP all in one that works great with my first generation Fire for printing documents.

Not sure what "app" you are even commenting upon ?

Just to re-iterate my previous comments, try looking at the Google Chrome Cloud printing scenario....

This is the one where you need to have a PC running Chrome, with the Cloud Print addon, and of course have access to the Internet and your target printer.

You "register" yourself with the Google Cloud Printing service, and also do the same with the Android app loaded to your tablet. Then when you "print", it goes to the cloud and down to your PC, and then your printer.

The ony GOTCHA, is that the application you are printing from must support and list the SHARE VIA type feature... ie - email, twitter, etc - one selection will then be the "Print" capability.

I was able to connect my kindle fire in less than 5 minutes. Go to amazon get the Kodak printer app. Then to google chrome. If not already on your home computer may take you a little longer. Really simple. Thanks Kodak.

I can print from my kindle fire HD. I only have it connected to an hp printer currently so I don't know if it would connect to a Kodak or Dell.
