BlackBerry Presenter Review: A Little Lag and A Lot of Potential

I have the latest accessory from RIM called the BlackBerry Presenter: a means of displaying PowerPoint presentations from your BlackBerry to a projector. The way it works is fairly simple. To get started, you do the following:

  • Download the Presenter app to your BlackBerry.
  • Connect the Presenter to a power outlet.
  • Connect your projector to the Presenter.
  • Pair your BlackBerry to the Presenter.
  • Open a PowerPoint file and in the menu section select “Present”.

After using the device with several different types of PowerPoint presentations, I can say that this accessory had some serious drawbacks, but also more potential than any other accessory RIM has ever made.

BlackBerry Presenter – Leave Your Laptop at the Hotel

Comments

The BlackBerry Presenter is BlackBerry’s newest announcement that has been over a year in the making. At an initial price of $199, it truly was designed for the road warrior in mind. The BlackBerry Presenter is a device that connects your OS 4.6+ device to a projector to present your most beautiful PowerPoint presentations. It is able to display about 90 to 95% of the transitions from PowerPoint. If it can’t it’ll substitute it with “fade in/out” with the same timing to not throw you off. Additionally, if you’re on a BES you can stream your presentation off your server. They’ve made the setup drop dead simple and it’ll auto-configure the resolution. Additionally, the pairing is done for you via a piece of software and you can have numerous Presenters set up campus wide and select the one you’d like to use. It’s powered by Micro USB and outputs via VGA or S-Video to a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA). How many of your PowerPoint ninjas are interested?
