    According to a couple of iPhone developers (Magnetism Studios and Wooji Juice), don't expect iPhone print capabilities anytime soon despite a growing number of Google searches. This article also predicts that the most common form of iPhone printing would be the direct printing of photos.

    I dont see why they are being negative abut printing.... isn't bluetooth printing a possibility if apple finally allows us to use the pointless bluetooth chip!?

    I'm not sure I would ever want to print directly from my iPhone. Seems like a very niche application to me.

    I could see it being used quite often, especially if it could be made to work with photo printers. Get an email from john appleseed with a word document in it, tell it to print the document on the fly. No need to every check that email from your computer. Even better if you could do a print to a WiFi printer not on your network. If you are on the train on your way into work where you have a big meeting 1st thing in the morning. You have a multi-sheet spreadsheet that you want to hand out to the people at the meeting. WiFi print a couple of copies, grab the copies and walk right into the meeting. There are certainly uses for this feature.
