    Never used a TouchPad to print before, might have to buy one to see what they can actually do! Nice simple guide to printing too.

    How may access to another Brand (Canon) be made? It has Wireless access.

    I have “Epson WorkForce 435″ wireless. Can I use the same instrutions to install the printer in my TouchPad?
