Apple silently modified the AirPrint documentation and removed iPod touch 2G from the supported device list. Thus, where we used to read to print wirelessly from one iPod Touch second generation and beyond, now read the third generation onwards. AirPrint will let you wirelessly beam text, photos, and graphics to the supported printers “without the need to install drivers or download software.”
According to Apple’s marketing honcho Phil Schiller, wireless printing is magical:
AirPrint is Apple’s powerful new printing architecture that matches the simplicity of iOS – no set up, no configuration, no printer drivers, and no software to download.
iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users can simply tap to print their documents or photos wirelessly to an HP ePrint printer or to a printer shared on a Mac or PC.
Apple confirmed HP will be the first to support AirPrint in its upcoming ePrint printers, including the HP Photosmart, Officejet, Officejet Pro, and LaserJet Pro series. Air Print is coming with iOS 4.2 this November.
