    I think a great feature would be able to cable up to a printer and print documents. Can this be done on android now? This would be a great feature, maybe use openoffice.org for docs and down load drivers for printers???? I'm no tech head but I was wondering id this could be done?

    Interesting question. I really have no clue. If there's any hope it would have to be to do it through a wifi home network I would think. I really don't know.

    Even if you don't have a networked printer you can always plug in your phone to the printer via USB like you would a camera if your printer supports that. I just tried it out on mine and it worked perfectly!

    I have a wireless printer. I am hoping I can shoot my stuff to it.

    If you have a wifi enabled printer and are currently using your evo on wifi it's very simple. The question then becomes wheres the print button? There's a app for that!
