Still no PDA Printing after all these years...

Theres still virtually no printing capabilities available on PDA's comparable to notebooks yet. Apparently Samsungs Omnia II has "Basic Printing," however thats defined. Ive gone through WindowsMobile Site and found little more than that. Of course theres third-party stuff that also supports 'basic-printing' but nothing more robust and definitely nothing incorporated into Windows Mobile 6.5
Surely theres a huge demand out there. (What about all the iPhone users? I'll bet they have printing support! Im so tired of being held hostage by Microsoft.)
Users dont want to have to buy a new printer or sync with a PC to print either.
Can any device-driver programmers out there explain what the major technical challenges are in this area? Surely its not CPU or Memory issues because some of these PDA's have exceeded 1Ghz.
I will track this threat through December. Thanks again.
