The only way I have be able to print out of my PlayBook is to an e-printer, and even then I have to do this by emailing the document or email through the printer's email address. My local Costco had HP 3520 printers for $50 so picked one up. It is a light duty all-in-one. When you set it up the setup prompts you to set up an email address through the HP servers. The server sends the print job back over the Internet directly to the printer. you don't have to have your desktop running.
The 3520 also has Airprint so my wife, who has an $Pad, can print directly to it by 'sharing' a document to the printer.
Would be nice if BB10 had Airprint built in.

I'm sure HotSpot Printer works very well but I am not a 'jetseter' just someone who needs to print the occasional document. In addition the HP service is free, so long as you are using an HP printer. I guess printing from a tablet is a small need but just the same is a need for most users and all the tab developers have ignored this, I understand the development of a printing system built into he OS would be a huge challenge given the hundreds of different printers being used.
