Is it possible to print from an Ipod Touch? Perhaps using a wireless router??
Thanks

Apparently Apple is working on it, but I don't think there are any options yet:

I realize that having print capability from iPhone/iPod would require that print drivers be loaded. This was available years ago on my old Palm PDA, so it can be done, and they only had a fraction of the available memory on the iPhone/iPod. Therefore I don't see it as a technological problem to be overcome, but rather for Apple to just do it. WiFi printers are so common today there's no reason not to support this. This would be highly usefull in the business world, but apple is evidently not interested in being a player in the business arena. This is why the corp I work for continues to purchase crackberries by the truckload. Most of the salesforce likes the iPhone, some also have them, and of course in IT we are big Apple users (Mac desktops, lots of laptops, iPhones, iPods, etc.) but agree Apples is "just not there yet". Kinda sad.....

Printing would be a nice feature, but I think this will happen after bluetooth keyboards are enabled, which is after copy & paste is made available, sometime after MMS, which may occur after the camera gains a few basic features, like video and zoom.

be sure to add requests to pleasefixtheiphone.com !

Or you could go the direct route and, y'know, contact Apple Feedback...

It'll be much easier if you just comply.
