Hewlett-Packard and Research In Motion plan to design and sell business software together for RIM's popular BlackBerry smartphones.

The two companies will design and launch new software to improve productivity among business people who need to work while on the move, they said in a joint statement.

HP's CloudPrint for BlackBerry smartphones is one example.

CloudPrint is a Web-based service that allows Blackberry users to print e-mails, documents, photos and Web pages at any printer as long as they can access the Internet.

HP will also launch software called HP Operations Manager for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to better manage and control IT.

HP will demonstrate the Web service and server software at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium, which runs from May 5 to 7 in Orlando, Florida.

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.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
