Submission + - Will I Be Able To Print From The iPhone? (

Rus writes: "Since taking a job with AT&T (specifically focusing on iPhone support) the most repeated question I have received other than, "Can I get on a reserve list?" is; "Can I print from the iPhone?"

If they advertise "a phone like no other" — I say the average smartphone is VERY difficult to learn how to print from — if you can print from it at all. This is one thing I loved about the Newton. If you bought an Apple Stylewriter inkjet printer — boom — you were printing with little to no effort. I'm interested in what informed Slashdot readers have to say about this."
