How to Print an Email on Your iPad 2

The iPad 2 is a really handy device when you need some basic computer functionality but would prefer not to be weighed down by a laptop or desktop computer.

One of the more convenient tasks to perform is emailing, and you can perform many of the more common emailing tasks on the iPad with ease.

One task that many people don’t realize is that you can also print emails, if necessary.

This does require you to have an AirPrint compatible printer, however, but many of the newer wireless printers have this feature. You can visit Apple’s site for a list of AirPrint compatible printers.
