BlackBerry Cool Podcast: Episode 31


BBCoolThis week the BlackBerry Javelin dominates our attention, but of course there’s always something going on in India. Rogers also got some new data plans which just fall short of unlimited, but also offer the BlackBerry 8820, which will nicely take advantage of their UMA service. To cap it all off, we shift gears away from developer interviews, and chat with two specialists out of California: Brian Boxer Wachler, eye specialist; and Glenn Cohen, hand surgeon. Learn not only the physical effects of your BlackBerry habits, but what the experts have to say on device design. Grab the MP3, yoink it off iTunes, or pilfer the podcast from our RSS.

BlackBerry call conferencing for medical professionals


Stethoscope Pearl Medical is teaming up with Ring2 to offer its members call conferencing control via BlackBerry. Not only does Ring2‘s interface let you see who’s logged into a call, but you can record the call as an MP3, and assign billing information. Pearl Medical offers a slew of BlackBerry services to medical professionals, with subscription fees that can be subsidized down to £10 per month by answering some online questionnaires. Any job in medicine is a data-intensive affair, so it’s good to see BlackBerry delivering it in whichever way it can.
