Craig Android Tablet

Andy is looking at getting a Craig Android Tablet, because it's pretty cheap. Leo says that everyone is making an Android tablet these days because Google gives away Android for free. Andy wants to know if he'll be able to print with it.

Leo says Andy could print via the Google Cloud Print option, but it's unlikely to be able to print directly via USB or direct connection. Andy would have to print via the network. He could potentially use Bluetooth if the printer supports it. Photos can be printed directly via the on board card slot. If the tablet has an SD card slot, that may be an option.
