    RIM, FedEx, Hilton, and HP Come Together to Bring Printing On-The-Go


    There is a need in the business world to do things on the go; whether it be grabbing coffee, reading the news, or finishing up a report to turn into the boss. Now to help BES users, HP introduces mobile-printing for BlackBerry smartphones. The service is officially called HP MPS Smart Decision Suite and is based off the HP Cloud Print technology. Partners FedEx Office (formerly known as FedEx Kinko's) and Hilton Worldwide will support ePrint in their respective locations; which numbers to over 3000 locations you can print from. On top of that you can add your own network and print from your personal network printer.

    The press release is a heck of a read, but BES users should still perk their heads up in interest. If your company has purchased the MPS Smart Decision Suite you can print from any Fedex Office or Hilton location from your BlackBerry! This allows you to add printing to that list of things you do on the go and not have to worry about looking for a printer when you forgot to print that spreadsheet. So tell us what you think; If you are a BES user would you use this service given that it is at your disposal?

    From my understanding of the article the service is going to be on top of BES (unsure about BESx). It doesnt specify the type of printers, but any printerthat is associated with RIM's network (Like Hilton, and Fedex/Kinko's). But the article also mentioned adding a private secure network like a wifi article.

    So the answer would be no bluetooth or usb cable. Only for BES users and can use any printer operated by Fedex, or hilton along with your own secure network printer.

    I grabbed this as soon as I saw it released. Then I realized it was only for BES users and it would not work on my BIS 9700. Hopefully they'll work out something for the BIS users soon.
