HP has signed a partnership deal with Research In Motion to offer several new products and services for the BlackBerry smartphone line. HP has already announced server packages as well as services for the handsets.
"Emerging models of communications and collaboration have created an opportunity for RIM and HP to provide service-based mobile solutions that deliver value to customers," said Ann Livermore, executive vice president of HP's technology solutions group.
The servers will come bundled with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server software as well as the option of HP's Operations Manager software.
The company will also offer a new CloudPrint service for the BlackBerry which will allow users to print emails directly from the handset.
HP plans to put its $13.9bn acquisition of EDS to use in the deal. The outsourcing specialist will offer a management service for corporate BlackBerry networks.
The two companies plan to demonstrate the new systems later this week at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium in Florida.
