We saw earlier this month an easy way to show your presentations by using a “Mobile Projector” accessory for the LG IQ. Today RIM has announced the “BlackBerry Presenter”. This is an accessory that will retail for $199 and can RIM says it “easily plugs into a projector or monitor, then lets the user display a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation wirelessly from their BlackBerry smartphone”. Sounds like a good idea but it a bit limiting as it only works on PowerPoint presentations.
