London, UK (PRWEB) May 26, 2006
T-Mobile today announces the availability of Impatica ShowMate, the first and only presentation solution that allows users to project PowerPoint presentations directly from their BlackBerry wireless handhelds.
A pocket-sized device that weighs just 255 grams, ShowMate supports all PowerPoint presentation features including rich text, images, charts, graphs, animations and slide transition effects.
To use the ShowMate, users select on their BlackBerry the PowerPoint presentation they want to project, then simply connect the ShowMate via Bluetooth to their BlackBerry and to the projector and start their presentation.
Steve Tait, T-Mobile UK’s Business Solutions Manager, comments: “We are pleased to announce the partnership with Impatica as we continue to expand our BlackBerry offering. ShowMate is a brilliant extension of our BlackBerry range of services - it enables our customers to access the information they need when they want it, wherever they want.”
“With ShowMate, T-Mobile customers can deliver PowerPoint presentations, without the need for a laptop. We are delighted to be partnering with T-Mobile and enabling mobile professionals in the UK to benefit from the device,” added Michael Doyle, CEO of Impatica.
The store retail price is £129.95, which is suitable for individuals or small businesses as it comes with desktop software to convert files.
Users who want files to be automatically converted will also need the business enterprise version, which costs £699 for the first 20 users and £699 for each additional 100 users.
