Re: ability to print documents to a networked printer via wi-fi

I think the heading says it all.  Why can't a business tool print via a wifi-networked printer?

 

Adding up the shortfalls of this product is depressing...

The directory structure is there.  You need to buy the File Manager app from App World to be able to use it.  A file manager should have been included with the OS, but I've given up on waiting for anything from RIM.

 

A Dropbox client would be very handy too.  Have you voted for it in the Dropbox "Votebox" page yet?

[ Edited ]

I purchased the $5 last night.  Hoping that will take care of that issue.  Not being able to print sucks.  I cannot access files on the PB wirelessly as I have read so many others have been able to.  Printing is another biggie.  I cannot sync my media files either.  I did vote for dropbox.  Used all my votes on that one.

Re: ability to print documents to a networked printer via wi-fi

I am considering hiring an app developer to write an app for this feature. I personally have no experience in Blackberry app development, but have a similar interest in having such a capability.  I am not sure about printer compatabilities and drivers, and what issues there would be...  any suggestions?
