That is a great question, rbosler. Printing from a tablet is a great feature and I want to be sure you are well aware of the options you have.
The Verizon Ellipsis 8 currently requires a wifi connection for printing and it cannot be done using a USB cord. I have included a link http://vz.to/1LoO2p2 with additional information on the tablets printing function. Please reach back out to us if you have any other questions or concerns we would be happy to assist. Thank you for being the best part of Verizon.
