    BlackBerry Presenter PowerPoint Device Announced

    BlackBerry Presenter PowerPoint DeviceResearch in Motion introduced a new way to deliver PowerPoint presentations without needing your laptop. The BlackBerry Presenter is an accessory for BlackBerry smartphones that can easily be plugged into a projector or monitor and allows you to display a PowerPoint presentation wirelessly from your BlackBerry via Bluetooth.

    Using the BlackBerry Presenter you can navigate presentations, view speaker notes, loop presentation slides and even reference information on one slide while displaying another. Thanks to a Bluetooth connection between the BlackBerry SmartPhone and BlackBerry Presenter, you can even walk around while presenting (up to 30 feet between the devices).BlackBerry Mobile Presenter 2
