How To: BlackBerry Presenter


The BlackBerry® Presenter is a BlackBerry® smartphone accessory that can help to simplify your presentation experience.

As a frequent presenter, I’ve had my share of panic attacks and sweaty palms as I frantically try to sort through which cable connects to what outlet on my laptop, and whether it’s F7 or F5 that toggles the screen – and don’t even get me started on my trouble figuring out resolution settings!

Thankfully, now you can leave your laptop back at the office and travel light by presenting Microsoft® PowerPoint® or Adobe® PDF files directly from your BlackBerry smartphone. Just plug BlackBerry Presenter into a projector or monitor and select “Present” from the BlackBerry Presenter software on your BlackBerry smartphone. How easy is that?

Two features we really like: being able to roam up to ten meters away from the presenter with your BlackBerry smartphone in hand, and compatibility with multiple video formats (especially important if you present internationally).

Want to see how it works? Check out this three-part video series on Setting up your BlackBerry Presenter, Presenting with your BlackBerry Presenter, and Using the features of your BlackBerry Presenter.

We’d love to hear how you’re using BlackBerry Presenter!
