    Anyone have any clue on whether Apple plans on adding printing capabilities to the iPad? Any clues in 3.2 that suggest printing?

    Would hate to work on a Pages file to not be able to print directly from the device.

    Or does Steve hate printers too? (waits for all the save a tree replies)

    It's already confirmed (sorry don't remember where) that there will at least be printing via WiFi network capability.

    I'm sure there will be some way to print from the device, probably via a dock-to-usb cable or the capability to print wirelessly.

    There have been rumors (There are parts we haven't had confirmed - e.g. File saving, sharing, syncing, movie agreements etc etc).

    I'd say yes - it'll have print capabilities for iWork apps. Any which way, there are already Printing apps that can go to files/html pages then print them over wifi.

    The iPhone, iPad can do Bonjour, so it's likely.
