Wireless..
Well in oneway yes, it has wireless capability either from a laptop or receiving print via web, however your machine hastobe linked to the web and your machine first.
Second "wireless" it does not have its own power supply, so you have to connect this to a 110 source..

If you have an HP phone or iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, then you can print directly to this printer. This printer has something called HP ePrint where the printer has an email address and it looks for print jobs you send to is, such as an email from your mobile phone with a picture attached, or the text of the email.

No, it does not need to be hooked to a computer once you configure the wireless option. You do have the option to use the screen located on front of the product to select your requests.

You can use it as a copier as it comes out of the box. To print to it without it being connected to your computer you need to have it connected to a wireless network. The software that comes with printer will take you through that process quite easily. Then you can print to it from another device that can access that same network. The printer comes with a USB cable so you can also have it directly connected to the printer. It also has an ePrint capability that enables you to print to it by sending an email to your printer. I have not tried this function and probably do not have a need to. Very versatile printer for the price.

Yes it does and with the iPhone! However you will need to do a different Setup process other than the cd in the box for 10.6 and above and for lion iOS. Takes time and patience if u have a MAC but it works.
