How to use your Blackberry to give a Video/PowerPoint Presentation
Ever wanted to go to work without your notebook? Paul a Technical Manager for Enterprise sales group at RIM is telling us his story of how he could get rid of his Notebook and make use of his Blackberry to get the work done.
He wanted to share few tips with you to make most out of your Blackberry before he tells about the presentation stuff.
1) In the “Files” application, map to your personal drive. This is a great way to keep documents easily accessible between your laptop and device. Think of it as your secure cloud hard drive. To do this:
a. Launch the “Files” application
b. In the “Go to” section at the top of the app type the path to your network drive. It will most likely be in the following format “//server name/folder name”
** You’ll need to be connected to a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and have IT permissions for this.
2) Create a folder on your MicroSD card called “USB Thumb” and keep files that you would frequently share with your customers or team. I also store commonly used documents and product information here, where it is easily accessible.
Also consider some tips to get more battery life.
Blackberry has introduced a Blackberry accessory called Blackberry Presenter which can simplify the presentation task. If you do lots of presentation it is good to have this accessory with you as you can do the complete presentation from your Blackberry Smartphone. This accessory can be connected to any projector or LCD screen using a VGA cable and the Presenter device will communicate with the Blackberry wirelessly within 10 meters of range. One great thing about Blackberry Smartphone is it will support many video formats.
Giving a presentation using the Blackberry Presenter is quite easy, once you plugged the Blackberry Presenter to the screen you can press the “Present” button on the Blackberry presenter software on the phone to start the show!
