5150, Unfortunately, in my opinion, Android has failed with respect to USB not being supported by printers. I keep reading where there are a number of printing soloutions coming soon but to date none of them seem to propose to support USB.

There are a number of apps that will allow printing over WiFi. I use Printershare and it works very well.

Wish I had a fix for you being able to print via USB.

I'm using Cloud Print very successfully...it's awesome, but I do think it's dependent on wifi.

How would you print USB...? Cable the TF directly to your printer? In that case, why not cable to your computer and print from TF through computer's print driver?

:erm:
