    The printer manual or box should say. I think that if it had it they would try to announce it in someway, as it would be a cool feature.

    Just FYI, not many printers currently have Bluetooth built in, but manufacturers and third parties are providing Bluetooth adapter kits for printers.

    Yeah, but if you have a Powerbook and just want to print something off, it is kind of a hassle to go and plug it in. Why not just be able to print if you are in the same room. HP has a printer now that has built in WIFI. So as long as you are on the network you could print. If Epson put that feature into their R300, I would buy it for sure.

    What model of printer is it? If it doesn't have Bluetooth already (likely) then you can probably add it to it for something $60-$70.
