Can an hp wireless printer be hooked up to an I-pad?
Yes, if the HP printer is AirPrint compatible.
Check this Apple support document to see if your model is compatible:
Thank you. Don't think it is though.
If the printer is not AirPrint compatible, you might still be able to use a workaround by installing an App like Print Central on the iPad.
PrintCentral for iPad on the iTunes App Store
