None that connect directly,

but just about all of them have software available that enables you to print from your tablet to the printer.

My iPad prints to my LaserJet 4000 series printer.

Do you have a tablet in mind?

Thanks for the prompt reply, mmacfixit.
I have an ipad 1, but would be willing to purchase the next ipad coming down the pipe, if it can print to a printer.
I currently have a LaserJet P2055dn.
We run a small doctor's office.
Mostly I use the ipad to check the doc's schedule, but I would almost be able to replace my laptop with the ipad if it had printing capabilities.

I use a piece of software called Printopia,
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / August 24, 2013 6:15 AM PDT

It's not free, $19.99, but it does a great job.
It installs on a Mac, there is not a Windows version, and whatever printer that Mac can use, Printopia ensures that your iPad can use it too.

Print Utility for iPad ($3.99) http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/print-utility-for-ipad/id422858586?mt=8

Print Agent Pro for iPad ($5.99) http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/print-agent-pro-for-ipad/id421782942?mt=8

Print Agent Pro can print to many non-AirPrint and non-wireless printers on your network, even if they are only connected to a Mac or PC via USB.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
