    Does it support ePrint? If it does (like most recent HP Printers) then you just set up the ePrint functionality on the printer (and make sure it is connected to the internet!) and forward your emails/documents to your new ePrint email address

    AirPrint is Apple iOS functionality - unfortunately I've never heard of a BlackBerry being able to use it

    Cloud print app from an Android app store. Then connect and configure your printer on Google Chrome cloud print. It isn't flawless but it works with my setup. Give it a shot

    Correct, however the developer of PlayCloud is planning to add this capability.

    The usual app I use for printing is PrintHand, which works OK. (It's an Android port)

    For my Epson Artisan, I can also use their Android app, but it has some annoyances. (ie no ability to change the scaling of a printout)

    My Epson also supports Google Cloud Print, but I prefer not to use services that route all my personal documents through external entities just to print something on a printer 2 feet away from me.

    As Omnitech said, check out PrintHand. Works with my wireless HP.

    Free, I don't know. I purchased Printhand. It's easy. Long-press on document, select Open In - Printhand.

    Printhand works for me using my HP laser jet. The printer is hooked up via ethernet cable to my wifi router.

    It worked on the first try: I just installed Printhand on my phone and it immediately recognized my HP printer. Now I can print stuff straight from my phone. Very cool. Well worth the small cost.

    He's in India and his printer cost about $85. He might legitimately want to save money.

    PlayCloud is a little cheaper but the print functionality is far more limited:

    PrintHand is what I use also. Haven't had a problem with it yet. If I'm away from home I use the HP ePrint function and when I get home my print jobs are sitting there waiting for me. Comes in pretty handy. If I need to print at a place away from home and need it right away I just ask to connect to wifi, print document with PrintHand and then disconnect from wireless when finished. Works for me.

    I have an Epson printer, so I side loaded the Android Epson iPrint app and I can print almost anything direct from my phone via Wifi. I'm sure HP make an Android App.

    Not sure if the HP 2545 supports (HP) ePrint.... (or am I completely missing the point)

    Not a short term answer but at the icanmakeitbetter website BlackBerry has indicated ability to print to pdf and wirelessly print is under review. Means they're looking at ways to provide that functionality. Don't know if it will come in 10.3 or 10.3.1 or later. Even if it comes it won't be available until September, assuming windermere launches then or November with the classic.

    +1 for printhand.

    Its an android app I got for free from the amazon store when it was their app of day. I have subsequently paid for it. Works great on my HP printer.
