A while back we told you that FedEx would be partnering with HP to create a mobile printing solution whereby anyone could print at public locations Worldwide from their BlackBerry smartphone using cloud-based technology. Well the wait is finally over. FedEx just announced that FedEx Office Print & Go is now live at over 1,600 participating locations with more to come later this year. This will allow BlackBerry users to print PowerPoint, Word, Adobe pdf files, etc. directly from their BlackBerry with a press of a button.

To get started, all you need to do is install the HP ePrint application to your device. It adds a nice little Print option to your BlackBerry menu that be accessed from your email, docs2go, or when viewing an image. Next, follow these simple steps: Click print, locate the nearest participating print center (using your device's GPS), send the document, get your retrieval code and input into the print and go machine, approve and print. It's just that easy to do. This is definitely a must have application for anyone travelling or working remotely without access to a printer.

Are you constantly on the go and need to print in a hurry? If so, let us know what you think of this announcement in the comments below. The HP ePrint application is available for free for all BlackBerry devices running OS 4.5 and higher. Keep reading for the full press release. Thanks Dave!

DALLAS, January 18, 2011 - FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko's), an operating company of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), today announced the introduction of FedEx Office® Print & Go-a technology that enables customers to access and print documents directly from BlackBerry® smartphones and USB flash drives on its digital copy machines. The smartphone printing feature of this new, easy-to-use solution is enabled by the HP ePrint mobile printing application. FedEx Office Print & Go can be found on select Canon printing devices within the self-service area at the company's retail locations, providing customers added convenience and flexibility.

With the world's largest retail printing network, FedEx Office is the only print retailer to offer convenient self-service printing from both BlackBerry smartphones and USB flash drives nationwide. FedEx Office Print & Go is now available at more than 1,600 locations and will be offered at all U.S. stores later this year. Customers can simply plug their USB flash drive or enter a retrieval code e-mailed to their BlackBerry smartphone into FedEx Office Print & Go machines and use the digital screens to select, preview and print Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe PDF documents. In addition, customers can choose to have their print jobs produced by professionally trained team members at the full-service counter.

"With the launch of FedEx Office Print & Go, we are giving customers exactly what they have asked for-a convenient and simple way to convert digital content into printed material at FedEx Office locations across the country," said Brian Philips, president and CEO, FedEx Office. "We are the clear leader in offering digital printing on-demand, anytime, anywhere. FedEx Office Print & Go, combined with our easy-to-use FedEx Office Print Online application and our network of 11 p.m. and 24-hour stores nationwide, means that our office is your office no matter what your deadline may be."

The launch of FedEx Office Print & Go is a result of the alliance FedEx Office formed with Canon U.S.A., Inc. and HP in April 2010 to create an unmatched network of printing and imaging capabilities, transforming the retail printing experience.

This is one of those (enhanced) apps that I think is real neat to have. I won't use it, but knowing it is out there is great. I could see it doing well as an app within the corporate environment.

This is EXACTLY what I need for my office. Can't wait to share with everyone! Thanks Dave

It's funny really. I was at a FedEx Office store last night to ship something and I saw this function advertised all over the store. Pretty nifty function, especially for those in a business setting. Be nice if HP can add that kind of functionality on their home printers. Now THAT would really catch a bit of attention from the consumer market. Just a thought...

I used this app today and it worked GREAT!!!! The staff at FedEx was just as excited as I was. I was the first one they had use it and they were all clapping. It was hilarious. The print doesn't just work with FedEx either. There are a ton of places that came up for me to print too. I love this app!
