HP says that it is seriously thinking about reviving a printing platform for Blackberry.

The platform would enable users to send mail to a specific email address, with capability included that any attachments the message contains could be printed.

That's according to UK-based Website computing.com.uk."Two or three years ago we had a BlackBerry printing platform that we introduced to market," Computing's Matt Chapman wuotes Sharon Jones, vice president of laserjet connectivity and document delivery at HP, as saying t at the Print 2.0 conference in New York.

"We were a little bit ahead of the market but we feel that it may be time to dust that off and bring it back."

Matt then quotes John Johansky, vice president of technology solutions and partner organisations at HP, awho dded: "It is a good point, at least in terms of how we are working and the balance of time, resources and priorities. Mobility is an important component."

Dedicated email printing would also be on the table.
