HP brings printing to the iPhone

Third party functionality keeps adding more and more features to the iPhone.  HP has just introduced (Store Link) a new app that lets you print your pictures to an HP printer.

From HP:

HP iPrint Photo is a free downloadable software application that allows you to quickly and easily print 4" x 6" photos. Images stored on your iPhone or iPod touch can print on most HP networked ink jet printers connected to a local WiFi network. Wireless printing is a fun extension of the iPhone / iPod touch’s easy photo capture and viewing experience.

It will be interesting to see if Apple releases some universal printing standards or if Printer manufacturers will have to each produce their iPhone application.
