Lately Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs commented on iPad printing, although his comment rarely contains more than a few words. He replied to an e-mail that it (printing to iPad) will come.
Since Apple’s iPad has launched, part of the experts thought that iPad release might be a huge failure in near future while a big part were sure that iPad is successfully going to set the stage of a new category of device. And the real story is that Apple sold one million iPad till 28days after its release on 3rd April, 2010.
And within 2 months, Steve Jobs’s comment on iPad printing almost indicates that iPad would be a blow toward the death of print. A few market researchers are saying that print is still quite far from death. But Steve’s comment showed a dynamic age of digital printing directly to handheld device.
When print to iPad will come, it will be the first product for electronic age. And we must say, even naysayers would have nothing to deny that.
The iPad will definitely need a lot of new applications for printing and that Apple assure in time when users want to share their electronic documents with their analog friends.
But the question is when will it come? We would just pretend that Steve meant “Soon”.
