The ability to print is an integral part of productivity and useful for sharing documents and photos as well as printing boarding passes, recipes, coupons, etc. Amazon wanted its devices to have the same print capability as Android, Apple and Windows devices. These phones, tablets and PCs already have built-in or "pre-installed" print systems in their operating systems.
