HP DeskJet 2540 Print with HP Wireless Direct

The Deskjet 2540 is an low-cost all-in-one printer with built-in wireless networking and a 1,200x1,200dpi scanner, but few other features. There's only a tiny mono LCD display and no memory card reader. This means direct printing and scanning aren't an option, and the MFP doesn't support HP's ePrint email printing system.
