HP expands AirPrint support to eight more LaserJets

updated 12:20 pm EDT, Thu June 23, 2011

Tech still limited to HP printers

HP is distributing a new firmware update which substantially augments the number of AirPrint-compatible printers. Eight more LaserJet models have been added; these include the P1102w and P1606dn, as well as six Pro models: the CP1025nw, M1212nf, M1213nf, M1214nfh, M1216nfh and M1217nfw. Prior to today only five LaserJets supported AirPrint, all of which were Pro devices.

While heavily promoted in conjunction with iOS 4.2, AirPrint has in general remained a marginal technology. Support continues to be limited to HP printers, and then only a selection of relatively recent devices. The feature was originally expected to open up printing for iOS, providing a standard through which documents be handled without exporting to a computer. Apple has since accelerated "PC free" concepts.
