Question: Can an iPad Print?
Answer: Absolutely! The iPad gained the ability to print with the iOS 4.2 upgrade. This allows users the ability to print from the Mail application, print out web pages from Safari, print out Notes and print from any number of print-enabled apps.

In order to print from your iPad, your printer must either (1) be compatible with Apple's AirPrint protocol for wireless printing or (2) have an associated app that you can download from the app store. Many printers that are not compatible with AirPrint have iPad Apps that give the iPad some print functionality for that printer, though it may not be as robust as the AirPrint capabilities.
