HP and Blackberry vendor RIM are teaming up to sell business software for BlackBerry smartphones. The two companies are set to design and launch new software to improve productivity among business people who need to work while on the move.

HP's CloudPrint for BlackBerry smartphones is a web-based service that allows Blackberry users to print emails, documents, photos and web pages at any printer as long as they can access the Internet. The company will also launch software called HP Operations Manager for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to better manage and control IT.

The companies did not say when the software will be available.

The software and services designed by the two companies will be usable with BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0, the statement said.
