BlackBerry-Based WIC Pager Pilot Program at Children’s Hospital

Comments

Currently, many hospitals use an outdated pager system to get in touch with doctors on call. This solution does not allow admins to know whether the message was received and relies on a code system that doesn’t provide much detail as to the nature of the page. Wallace Wireless have a BlackBerry-based solution that brings pager like services to BlackBerry users. The system is in the process of being piloted at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), and if it’s successful could set a new standard for healthcare professionals.

Rate User Profiles and Spend Money to Contact Them With Pinvote

Comments

There’s a new app called Pinvote which lets you rate a user profile, sort of like the infamous Hot or Not, but puts a twist on it by allowing you to buy credits to contact a user via BBM. This is a pretty awesome idea and I have a hard time not respecting how aggressive they are with monetizing the service, but you have to wonder who is going to pay for a BBM friend. There are already many social networks that allow you to exchange PINs, but I think they’re all going to have a hard time when RIM extends BBM to desktop.

Head over to Pinvote and give it a try.

BBM5

BlackBerry® Messenger is the instant messaging (IM) program that’s unique to BlackBerry smartphone users. You can instantly chat, send and receive pictures, and set your availability status using a familiar desktop IM look and feel—all from your BlackBerry smartphone.

A new version of BlackBerry Messenger will soon be available. We’ve been trying a leaked version of BBM 5.0 for a couple of months now and we couldn’t be more impressed with the new features:

  • Enhanced SMS -Allows for a conversational chat-like user experience with a single contact list for the most personal mobile-to-mobile communications
  • Avatars -Users can choose a picture from the BlackBerry Smartphone gallery and save it as their personal avatar, which will be seen by their contacts. They can also view other avatars in the contact list and zoom in on the avatars of contacts participating in a conversation by selecting “View participants.”
  • Large Media File Transfer -Users can send/receive large file transfers up to 6 megabytes for pictures, files and audio.
  • Enhanced Group Functionality -Allows for the ability to update, share & communicate with a subset community.
  • Bar-code Identity -A user can add a contact to the BlackBerry Messenger contact list by displaying a 2-dimensional bar code that invitees can capture with their device cameras.
  • Reliable Contact Backup and Restore -Contacts are backed-up on a server and do not require the need for BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.
