Research In Motion has introduced BlackBerry Presenter, an accessory for BlackBerry smartphones that plugs into a projector or monitor and allows a user to display and manage a PowerPoint presentation wirelessly from a BlackBerry smartphone.
BlackBerry Presenter connects to the user's BlackBerry device via Bluetooth, allowing the user to walk around freely while navigating a presentation, viewing speaker notes, and even referencing information on one slide while displaying another.
"Mobile professionals are always looking to carry less when traveling," says RIM vice president of product management Glenn Laxdal. "BlackBerry Presenter equips mobile professionals with a simple, secure and convenient way to deliver presentations directly from their BlackBerry smartphone, giving them the freedom to leave their laptops behind."
BlackBerry Presenter requires a video output device and a VGA cable or an S-Video cable. The solution is not supported by the BlackBerry Curve 8300 Series or the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8200 Series smartphones.
Availability has not yet been announced, though the device will retail for $199.
