The BlackBerry Presenter device allows you to control a PowerPoint presentation wirelessly using just your BlackBerry phone. At CES 2010 we were able to hang with Ryan Biden, RIM Product Manager for the BlackBerry Presenter device, as he gave us a test drive. Aside from simply wirelessly displaying and controlling a PowerPoint presentation from your BlackBerry, you can also set a presentation to loop on its own once the Presenter has it cached, and walk away. We give you a full demo of the BlackBerry Presenter in this episode.
A big thank you to Bing for sponsoring Gear Live’s CES 2010 coverage.
