For our last show before WES, we talk with Neverfail and BoxTone about their recent partnership, as well as the spiffy lounge at WES, followed up by a talk with SugarSync about their desktop and mobile file access apps, and then Chalk about their exciting plans for WES, which include a prize-packed contest. As usual, we run down the news, namely the BlackBerry 9100′s flip form factor coming to light, Canadian government stepping into the ongoing Indian debacle, and RIM’s post-WES plans for certification. You can grab the MP3, XML, or iTunes.

Chalk is all about the “pushcast.” Their flagship product, Mobile chalkboard allows you to quickly and easily push rich media to employees. Video, audio, images, and text can be combined with tests and surveys and then sent out in a mobile-friendly version. You can even specify which model you’ll be sending to and chalkboard will tailor the content appropriately. We talked with them at last year’s WES, and since then they’ve told us that they’ll be releasing version 5.0 of the software at this year’s, so keep an eye out.
The next news out of CTIA is that the enterprise multimedia communications solution, Mobile Chalkboard, has been updated to version 4.3. What’s new, you ask? “The new version of Mobile chalkboard has enhanced functionality including deeper integration with productivity applications and a more sophisticated reporting suite.” Hmmm… Kinda vague, huh? Regardless, we talked to Chalk back at WES, and we’re happy to see their product continuing to evolve. It’s mostly used for corporate training on the go, but but can push any enterprise media to a wide number of devices.
Remember Chalk? Looks like they just got into the Independent Software Vendors Alliance Program offered by RIM, meaning perks galore. Application support, beta previews, marketing materials, sales resources, training, the whole nine yards. Based on our interview at WES, their training software, Mobile Chalkboard, looked pretty solid, so good on them for getting ISV Alliance membership.
