HP's AirPrint FAQ covers the difference between Apple's AirPrint and HP's ePrint.

here is a bit more info from the FAQ:
- AirPrint uses your local 802.11 wireless network to print directly from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a local HP ePrint product
- ePrint uses the internet, a free service from HP that allows you to print from your email-capable device to your Web connected printer, anytime, from any location, over the Internet. It is as simple as sending an email to the email address assigned to your product when you set up the ePrint service

I must be doing something wrong.....I am able to print just fine when I am at home using my iPad, but if I want to print from outside my house, I get an icon that says "select printer", then "no printers found"....help!!

AirPrint, the method iOS uses to print, works on a local network. ePrint, HP's long range printing solution, will work across networks but to use it you send an e-mail to your printer. You don't use ePrint from the iOS print dialogs.

I think I figured out how to make airprint work with an eprint-enabled printer.
I just installed the Photosmart Plus B210 wireless printer. It works great with my Dell PC, but even though my iPad and iPod Touch recognized the printer and started showing a "print" option under the sharing icon in email and in Safari, I just couldn't print from those devices to the Photosmart B210.
I'd get an error message that said "printer is offline," even though it wasn't -- and network tests confirmed that it wasn't.
So thinking that the Apple devices and my HP printer might need to be properly introduced first, I sent an email from each device to the printer, which has its own unique email address (that's what eprint is).
After that, I could print web pages, emails and almost anything else from the iPad and iPod Touch.
Just send an email first, and you're fine from then on.

I've had no problems otherwise.
Any more ideas on 3G printing from Safri.
