BlackBerry Presenter Gets Official RIM Takes PowerPoint Presentations Seriously with the BlackBerry Presenter

I was pleasantly surprised to see RIM thinking out of the box today as
the first product the company unveiled at CES 2010 wasn t a new
BlackBerry smartphone. What RIM launched was a tool m
eant to help you deliver PowerPoint presentations while you re on the
go. The BlackBerry Presenter is the device in question and it will be
available in a store near you soon.As BlackBerry smartphones are the
weapons of choice for many professionals out there so it only makes
sense for RIM to launch such a device. The BlackBerry Presenter will
help you deliver fast presentations without having to bring your laptop
along. A BlackBerry smartphone is still required in order to make the
Presenter run.
Glenn Laxdal, Vice President, Product Management, Research in Motion had
this to say about the new gadget:
Mobile professionals are always looking to carry less when travelling.
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
Would you really leave the laptop behind? Well in case you answered yes
