BlackBerry Onyx to come with a trackpad - new device strategy?

Comments

updated_onyx_trackpad

The BlackBerry Onyx has been spotted with a trackpad. Although the Tour 9630 does not have a trackpad, the BlackBerry Gemini 8520 does. This could mean that RIM is thinking of making all devices post 9630 come with a trackpad.

Is this the death of the trackball? I hope so. BlackBerry users have had to replace a ton of trackballs because they get dust/sand in them or they just simply wear out. This new strategy could mean longer lasting devices.

Web-based search and access application for BlackBerry

Comment

myCopernic is a web-based application that lets you search and access data stored on your PC.

Once you’ve registered your account, and downloaded the Copernic Connector to your PC, you can access your files OTA from your BlackBerry. Over the web, you get access to documents, emails, email attachments, pictures, music, movies, contacts, etc.

This application, with competitors such as Cortado, is most likely aiming at a Power User and consumer market. If you’d like to see how it holds up for enterprise, you can download a professional version which gives you access to calendar items.

You can purchase myCopernic On the Go for $9.99 per year.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM mobile solution from MobileAccess 4.5

Comments

TenDigits Software have announced the launch of their MobileAccess V4.5, mobile CRM solution.

With MobileAccess 4.5, users can have the same Microsoft Dynamics CRM functionality that they get in the office, on the go. From your BlackBerry, you get access to core CRM functions such as CRM record searches and lookups, and creating, editing, deleting and assigning records. Additionally, MobileAccess gives you the ability to:

* Open and forward documents and attachments
* Set independent user personalization
* Quickly share CRM records by email with others
* Receive Alert Notifications of newly created or assigned records

This latest release of MobileAccess includes the Smart Actionable Alerts feature. This feature takes a different approach to alerts in that it does not rely on email or SMS messages. The alerts are available directly on the device, allowing the user to take immediate action. While I am not positive of the technology behind this alert system, I suspect it uses the RIM Push API’s, to have alerts immediately sent to the device.

This latest release also includes the ability to upload photo images, GPS coordinates, or any file (i.e. audio, video) from your BlackBerry to Dynamics CRM. The software also includes support for some of the latest BlackBerry devices, including the Storm and the Tour.

In general, BlackBerry and mobile have had an incredible impact on CRM. Managing contacts is a core strength of smartphones and CRM solutions utilize this technology well. While there are many CRM solutions for BlackBerry, it’s important to evaluate what competitive advantages each solution offers, and which is right for your organization.

For more information, see the MobileAccess site.
