HP/BlackBerry project paves way for Cloud print option
IT services and computer/printer manufacturer HP has teamed up with Research in Motion (RIM) to create web service that will let BlackBerry users ouput documents to a local printer. John Stokdyk reports
Due for launch later this year, HP CloudPrint for BlackBerry will be a “printer-agnostic” system that lets you access documents and emails over the web to print on a nearby device.
To use CloudPrint, you submit a file to the central server, which converts it to a PDF and sends back an SMS code to your BlackBerry.
