Canon has announced that it has added AirPrint support to three PIXMA printers. According to the announcement, the PIXMA MG8220, MG6220 and MG5320 Wireless Photo All-In-One inkjet photo printers will now support AirPrint wireless printing from the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. In addition, the company also announced that the majority of PIXMA inkjet printers launched from this point forward will include support for the feature. Introduced in iOS 4.2 last November, AirPrint allows for configuration- and driver-free printing to supported printers directly from iOS devices.

Airprint Activator on the Mac is still the best solution for those who aren’t ready to go out and buy new printers just for a feature like that.  It’s free and works with Lion too!  Seems to work for any vendor’s printer too.  Shows all the defined printers on the iOS device, no app required either.

Really hope they release firmware updates for other recent models too. Like the MG5250! (Just bought one, and disregarded the MG5320, because it didn’t specify it had airprint)
It can only be a win win situation for Canon !
