For some reason I think a lot of you will have a smile after this post – I don’t know, might just be me. But see that screenshot? See what appears to be the main interface of one of my devices on there? News for you, pals – it is my interface. I was given a heads-up yesterday from the kind, kind folks at Idokorro about a little project they’ve been toiling away on called Idokorro’s “BlackBerry Viewer”.
BlackBerry Viewer works as easy as you think it should. You simply connect your device to your computer via USB and launch the viewer. The viewer then appears right on your desktop and by clicking “start”, your BlackBerrys screen pops right up onto your desktop. Idokorro is quick to mention that this is still a project for them and there’s a few bugs, but an interesting note to that: when Idokorro reps were at the Wireless Enterprise Conference, they asked a group of 400 if they would use this tool while there were still a few glitches. The answer? A resounding “yes”.
The glitches are minor, the biggest being that not all keystrokes are logged so you may have to enter your command and turn your jog dial one or two times extra for it to be entered. But think of the possibilities with this! Presenting to clients, training employees, even showing off your fishing skills in Bass Assassin, for pete’s sake! Get on the free trial download (you’re required to complete a short survery) while you can and look for a clean version to purchase early on in the new year.
