Virgin Blue Mobile Check-in App for BlackBerry Check-Mate

Comments

This news is a little old but Virgin Blue has launched a check-in app for BlackBerry called Check-Mate. The app lets Virgin Blue travelers in Australia to make flight bookings, changes and cancellations across the entire Virgin Blue domestic network from their BlackBerry. Check-Mate also allows you to select your seat and board via 2D barcode scanning. Boarding with your mobile is far more convenient and I’m looking forward to when paper is completely obsolete.

Palm leaves the airports, BlackBerry moves in

Comments

Palm’s logo. Impress it upon your memory ere it fades.Palm recently announced that they would be closing all their retails stores. While there was some initial confusion, it was eventually determined that only the seven stores located in malls would be closed. The remaining 26 airport stores are owned and operated by Airport Wireless which, until this closure, had a tight partnership with Palm. The stores will remain open, but the company is broadening their reach by adding new devices and accessories including, of course, the BlackBerry. While the company is in talks with Palm to continue having their devices in the stores, at the moment the decision is up in the air. RIM’s been starting to get more involved in the retail side of things, so this is the perfect opportunity to edge into Palm’s spot, especially considering Palm’s OS delay and 43% profit drop last year, and not to mention the whole Foleo debacle.
