HP has been talking about a printing solution for BlackBerrys for quite awhile. When we first heard about it the solution was supposed to be focused on enterprise printing but it has expanded since then. HP just released their mobile printing solution dubbed ePrint and it has a little for both enterprise and regular users.
For enterprise customers using HP’s enterprise printing solution your company can easily enable you to print to corporate printers. For customers you can download the HP mobile printing app and print from hundreds of locations including Fedex Kinko branches and Hilton business centers. The downside is that you have to pay for them. HP could really turn this solution around if it let regular users print to any HP printer they setup. Hopefully they are moving in that direction.
For now the ePrint solution encompasses:
- HP ePrint Enterprise solution is a simple, secure solution that allows you to print directly from your e-mail to any of your company’s networked printers.
- HP ePrint for printing on the go allows you to print to HP ePrint locations—print and copy retail stores as well as hotels, airport lounges and more—giving you easy access to printed documents wherever business takes you.

As a reference the app will let you print the following file types:
- Microsoft® Word documents
- Excel spreadsheets
- PowerPoint presentations
- Image files
- HTML files
- Text and rich text files
- XPS documents
