BlackBerry Cool WES 2008 Hangover


Sleepy BloggerWhile the rest of the BBCool crew is enjoying a well-deserved, post-WES holiday (what we call in Canada Victoria Day), I thought I’d put up a post for all those in the BlackBerry Cool Nation returning to work today. While there’s tons of content to see at our Best of WES page, I’m going to pull out the creme of the crop to help you get through the day.

Podcasts: We did four podcasts during the week, but three really stand out and should be listened to by everyone in the BlackBerry space. Why is that? Maybe because we interviewed a cadre of AAA BlackBerry developers, a top-level carrier VP, and an industry analyst who has covered BlackBerrys for ten years.

Podcast 1 — Every Laptop Left Behind Panel (Rove, WICKSoft, LiquidTalk)
Podcast 2 — Irv Witte, VP of Business Marketing, Rogers
Podcast 3 — Andrew Brown, Analyst, Strategy Analytics

Viigo Project Tango Sneak Preview and Interview: Basically everyone we ran into at WES told us they read BlackBerry Cool through Viigo. See why.

Zumobi and Unify4Life: One of the best things about WES is seeing cool new products that you can’t wait to own. Unify4Life and Zumobi (hi-res screenshots) were those products this year.

NJBlackBerry Talks IT Admin
: BlackBerry Forums hero NJBlackBerry talks like a kid in a candy store about all the great products and services for IT Admins at WES.

YouTube Videos: Want to see the BlackBerry Bold launch video? Want to know what wBloggin is? Go here.

Finally, EVERYONE wanted a BlackBerry Cool tee shirt this year. Don’t be left out.

The BlackBerry Cool Podcast: WES 08 Day 2 (Every Laptop Left Behind)


BlackBerry Cool WES 2008 PodcastRefreshed and back in tip-top shape, BBCool Simon and I return with one of our best podcasts yet, although you can probably attribute that to our guests: Rob Woodbridge of Rove, Will Hickie of WICKSoft and Dave Peak of LiquidTalk.

Listen in as we talk about the panel that these three gentlemen are participating in (“Every Laptop Should Be Left Behind”) and what it means for the future of mobility. Also, we talk about American political folk music, and why $150 million dollars isn’t that big of a deal.

Listen to the podcast via MP3, RSS/XML, or iTunes. To learn more about the Every Laptop Left Behind movement, head here.

LiquidTalk launches for BlackBerry


LiquidTalkAnother announcement out of DEMO ’08 is LiquidTalk for BlackBerry, who provide a system of podcastifying corporate intelligence and pushing it out to employees packing an iPhone, iPod or BlackBerry. The whole thing sounds vaguely reminiscent of Chalk Mobile, who also facilitate push multimedia to a workforce, as well as gather feedback, but LiquidTalk sounds like they’re focusing more on the audio end of things.
