While at the International Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Show (IHMRS) in New York last week, we asked 10 people if they knew they could print from their BlackBerry. Not one of the 10 were aware they could print from a BlackBerry directly to a hotel printer or business center with the PrinterOn service using the HP ePrint app. They were amazed after showing them they could print using the app.
You can download the HP ePrint app from BlackBerry App World. When you download the app, it will add “Print” to your options menu. Simply select an email attachment, search for a PrintSpot and hit print. A secure release code will be emailed back to you that you enter on the keypad at the printer and your prints are released. You can also use GPS to find the closest print location to you.
There are over 4000 public print locations or PrintSpots worldwide. Send a print job to your hotel while waiting at the airport and pick it up when you arrive.
