MF4890 - Unable to print from Android.

I have a brand new wireless MF4890 that I am unable to get to print from my android device. It seems as though the Canon Mobile printing app isn't available for android devices? My guess the reason for this is that there is no drivers for Canon's UFR II protocol. Does anybody know if the mobile printing app is coming to Android soon? It would be a shame to have to return this printer. Thank you.

Hi uofaer,


The imageCLASS MF4890dw is a good choice, however the Mobile Printing capability supports printing via iPhone and iPad mobile devices.  A Mobile App for Android devices has not been announced and is unknown at this time.  Should you decide to stay with your MF4890dw, it is a great all-around machine and offers many useful and convenient features.  Whichever you decide, I am sorry for any inconvenience experienced.
