Those in the UK now have access to their own version of the BlackBerry Owners lounge, which features a few different sections than the North American counterpart, such as “Coming Soon”, “Exclusives” and “Latest News”. The Owners Lounge is great, regardless of what side of the pond you’re on – you can find free games, discounts on accessories, more tips than you can wave a calloused thumb at. The new UK lounge can be found here, and if you’re in North America and haven’t checked it out yet, head over here.

For our third Exhibitor Spotlight — the first two were BlackLine GPS and OtterBox, covered in Episode 18 of our podcast — we’re taking a look at MSC Mobility. The company offers a number of solutions to give company employees access to their email, contacts, calendars, and other data while out of the office, freeing up IT staff and other personnel for more time-consuming or critical tasks. At WES, they’ll be demonstrating Forms2Mobile. Much like GeoAge’s FAST, Forms2Mobile allows companies to push out new forms to employees’ phones and have any submitted data returned to their server almost immediately. Forms2Mobile, however, is designed with non-technical users in mind and is very easy to use even for the complete layman. Check it out, and if you’re going to be exhibiting, be sure to sign up for the Best of WES Awards!
Thomson Healthcare has announced that their charge capture software, called Clinical Xpert Navigator Charge Capture, is now available for BlackBerry. Like pMDsoft’s software, Clinical Xpert Navigator allows doctors to input diagnoses and charge codes into their BlackBerry and have that information submitted to a secure web portal almost instantaneously. The latest patient information is then available to doctors, nurses, and pharmacists from a smartphone, laptop, or PDA.
SpinVox is now offering a plugin for their transcription technology on BlackBerry. The service was rolled out through Rogers and other carriers last year, but was unavailable independently until now. You can pick up plans between £3.00 and £9.99 monthly, depending on how many conversions you need, which will work for voicemail, blog posts, personal memos, social networks and more. If you’re interested, you can check out the week-long trial over here. I wonder how it shapes up against SimulSays…?
BlackBerry game developer Magmic has just taken advantage of our free job posting offer over on BlackBerry Jobs, listing 7 positions that they’ve got ready to fill.

Be sure to keep an eye on the yellow section on the right pane for new updates, or better yet, head on over to BlackBerryJobs.com to see what other opportunities are waiting.
We’ve got another solution for medical professionals looking for a way to get patient information while on the move. PatientKeeper is a multi-platform system that normalizes data for easy access on whatever you’re using. As usual, BlackBerry’s the last one to the show, Palm and Windows Mobile devices having already been support for awhile now. For more information on PatientKeeper, check this out.
