WES Diary # 2 - Opening General Session

Kevin's Diary - LIVE from WES 2007! I have 30 minutes until the Solutions Showcase opens up (a.k.a. exhibit of hundreds of vendors), so I found a little corner in the Brass Lounge and it's time for a quick update.

WES started off this morning at 8:30am to a crowd of about 3,000 blackberry addicts. Crawford Del Prete, from the IDC, kicked things off, and from their RIM's founder and co-ceo Mike Lazaridis took the stage. There were no earth shaking announcements, but the big message was that it is the Application Providers that are going to take the BlackBerry to the next level, and that the next goal is to essentially replace the need to have an office phone by having the BlackBerry merge legacy PBX and IP phone systems into the Berry.

BlackBerry freed the business world from having to use their computer to check email, and the next goal is to free the corporate world from the office phone.  Example - you'll be able to just dial a party extension # on your berry as you would on your office line to reach someone within your company. 

After Mike finished up, next came the roundtable discussion on "Beyond Email". Nigel Clifford, CEO of Symbian was on hand, and man is this guy ever a good speaker and knowledgable.

Ooo..gotta cut this short for now. Lots to talk about, and all will come out in the days ahead, but don't want to miss anything right now!

WES Diary # 1 - Now That's how I Roll!

The flights went smooth, I land in Orlando at 11:30pm, grab my luggage, and what's the first thing I see when I walk out of the terminal? The BlackBerry Limo! Thanks for thinking of me RIM! There's no need to wait in line for a cab when you can roll Orlando in style! WES starts tomorrow - I'll be there bright and early, and I am pumped!

data viz

We warned you. The news will be thick and fast from WES2007.

DataViz, Inc was quick off the mark with its announcement of its latest addition to the company’s award-winning mobile Office editing suite.

Documents To Go for BlackBerry is expected to be shipped later this year but the company is using WES to launch the application to an avid and informed audience in Orlando.

Documents To Go will enable users of BlackBerries to access, view, edit and create Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on their devices. Native file support will provide users withthe benefit and flexibility of using files and attachments regardless of how they are delivered to their BlackBerry.

Documents to Go also features a revolutionary piece of technology – InTact, which retains complex file formatting when receiving, editing and sending files to and from a Berry. Documents To Go will provide an optimal user experience while simultaneously maintaining the integrity of the mobile document.

There is also nothing new to learn assuming you already know how to work in the MS office environment.

For more information on the program see the DataViz releasehere or visit their website. Visit the company’s booth at the Symposium(Booth 315) for a demonstration. You can also have your say on the new program in the CrackBerry forum here.

MS Visual Studio Announcment From WES

ms visual logo The WES show in Orlando this week, is going to be a font of information and we can look forward to a raft of announcements and nifty gadget releases. As we detailed earlier, the blogosphere stole RIM’s thunder by leaking the Curve story early, but there is still plenty of new information coming out of the annual symposium.

Today is the first day of the symposium, and we’ll be there to cover everything in full. Our own Kevin Michaluk is jetting toward Orlando and will bring us up to date. Look for the CrackBerry.com logo.

This morning, RIM announced plans to introduce a new development tool that will enable developers to work within the familiar .NET programming environment. This will allow developers to create rich client wireless applications for the BlackBerry.

The BlackBerry Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio gives system integrators and in-house corporate developers the ability to create BlackBerry applications that seamlessly integrate with back-end systems through .NET Web Services. According to the RIM release, corporations are coming to recognize the opportunities to boost productivity through wireless data applications and this application will go a long way to helping business realize those business opportunities.

BlackBerry MDS is a robust and widely deployed platform that enables wireless access to enterprise systems, and applications developed with the BlackBerry Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio will benefit from its advanced security, manageability, network efficiency and push capabilities.

“RIM continues to provide a flexible and open development platform with robust tools, technical assistance and support of industry standards,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. “This new developer tool meets the needs of the .NET developer community as well as enterprise customers by enabling the development of BlackBerry applications within the familiar framework of Visual Studio. It leverages existing skill sets as well as existing investments in the BlackBerry platform.”

The BlackBerry Plug-in for Microsoft Visual Studio will be previewed at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium 2007 in Orlando, Florida this week and is expected to be available later this year as a free download at www.blackberrydeveloper.com.

Barack Obama Wins Support from CrackBerry.com

Hillary Clinton and Barack ObamaNever mind the small detail that none of us here at CrackBerry.com are American Citizens. In fact, we're very Canadian. However, if we WERE Americans we would throw our support behind U.S. Senator Barack Obama.

Why you ask?

He's a confessed BlackBerry addict.

Recently, when asked what his favorite gadget was, Obama replied: "It would have to be my Blackberry...The least favorite is my Blackberry as well."

Well put Barack. It sounds like a true love/hate relationship!

On the other side of the coin was Senator Hillary Clinton. When asked the same question she replied "My iPod would have to be my favorite".

Oh so close Hillary... but we're afraid that was the wrong answer.

Tom Watkins: The day my BlackBerry almost died

Tom sent this to me the other day to get up on CrackBerry.com if I saw fit - it's a good piece of CrackBerry humor based on the "Great BlackBerry Outage of 2007" (as I like to call it), and even better, guess what website helped Tom get through his near-tragic day?! Read to the end to find out...

The day my Blackberry almost died
By: Tom Watkins. Originally Published: Northville Record May 3, 2007

I had a sick feeling when I woke up that morning. It was the day that I thought my dear Blackberry died. I never realized how much I needed and longed for her.

I felt it coming on the night before. I figured, no, she could not be sick; "all would be better in the morning," I thought. "Why," I wondered "was my sweetheart, my Blackberry, just laying there, no beams, no vibrations, and no emails?" I could feel the beads of sweat building on my forehead. I felt a bit clammy. I kept picking up my trusty Blackberry every few minutes, just to feel for her pulse, her warmth — but nothing.

The Day My BlackBerry Almost DiedI rolled over a few times during that long night to caress my lethargic Blackberry but she had no life. Up until that point, she had always lit up any room she entered. That night her trusty face provided a dim glow in my bedroom but no emails. She was as lifeless as my old eight-track tapes piled in the corner. "All will be fine in the morning," I prayed, as I rolled over and attempted to get some sleep. I wanted to be strong in the morning for Blackberry; I felt she needed me as much as I needed her.

With the first beam of the morning sun streaking across my bed, I once again stretched out to pull Blackberry close. I could feel the blood drain from my face as I looked wishfully into her screen with such great anticipation of seeing emails - from my colleagues in China a world away or my Wall Street Journal electronically nestled on my Blackberry porch. But I gulped when the screen did not even light up, not even as much as a wink!

BlackBerry Addict? 1, 2, THREE Berry's for Madonna

Thanks to the CrackBerry Paparrazi who sent us this (and wished to remain anonymous). It looks like Madonna was caught on camera carrying not one, not two, but THREE BlackBerry devices. Looks like two 8700s and one Pearl. The odds are she was giving them away to the less fortnuate (those without blackberry's), as she is planning on upgrading to the BlackBerry Curve. Well, I guess in the case of Madonna she will be upgrading to three BlackBerry Curves. I feel much better about my BlackBerry Addiction now that I know Madonna has three!

How to Spot CrackBerry Kevin @ WES 2007

CrackBerry.com at WESWith yesterday's spur of the moment decision to attend next week's Wireless Enterprise Symposium came today's realization that I had better be easy to spot in a crowd!

Over the past couple of months I have gotten to know a lot of people in the BlackBerry World, but communication has always been over the phone or via email or blackberry messenger. Next week I will have the pleasure of meeting many of these people at WES in person for the first time.

But with so much going on over three days, there will be no time to waste in trying to be found in a crowd! So what to do? What would be subtle and clever but scream CrackBerry.com? Taking our Pimp My Berry contest nomenclature to heart, we figured that is exactly what we should do - Pimp My Berry! The end result is in the photos - this is what happens when you give stickers and scissors to an office full of BlackBerry Addicts.

Look for the "CrackBerry Berry" next week in Orlando - and be sure to say Hi! 

Providers line up to launch Curve

provider logos

As we have mentioned before, sometimes living in Canada sucks. It was reported yesterday that AT&T will be releasing the new Curve in the US this month. In the UK, both Vodaphone and O2 will also be releasing the new smartphone in May.

But, according to the latest RIM press release, The Curve will not be released in Canada by Rogers Wireless until June.

The new Curve, as we have been detailing, will feature a number of consumer and business friendly goodies including a trackball navigation system, 2.0 megapixel camera, faster web browser and enhanced multimedia capabilities.

“As the leading wireless carrier in Canada, Rogers is committed to bringing innovative products like the BlackBerry Curve to Canadians,” said John Boynton, Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer. “Our customers are always looking for smart technology solutions and the new BlackBerry Curve, with its combined power and simplicity, will be attractive to businesses and consumers.”

Committed to bringing the most innovative devices later than anywhere else it seems.

I’m just asking the question, but how is that Canada, the home of the BlackBerry and RIM, is always the last to get new devices?

Listening is to a CD on your Berry is now easy. With the BlackBerry Desktop Media Manager, you can rip tracks from an audio CD, and then transfer the music files to your smartphone. Copy the entire CD, or create your own music mix with a customized playlist.

Built-in photo editing tools make it easy to crop, remove redeye and change the contrast and color saturation of photos. Use it to modify photos you took with your BlackBerry smartphone's camera*, or some you took with a digital camera.

There are also lots of advanced features.You can add tags to your music so you can easily sort songs by artist, title, album, genre, etc. on your PC and when loaded onto your BlackBerry.

We have a Who's going to WES 2007 thread you should join in on.

Hope to See you there! Let's spread the CrackBerry.com word!!!

Was RIM forced to release Curve early?

blackberry curve

According to some, it was the blogoshere that forced today's release of the Curve, days earlier than RIM had intended.

As we reported at CrackBerry.com yesterday, the Spanish site MiBlackBarry.com discovered that the URL for blackberry8300.com was redirected to blackberrycurve.com. This was then picked up by non-official BlackBerry sites around the world and word was out much to RIM’s chagrin.

RIM took down the URL redirect yesterday afternoon. An odd response if you were going to make a formal announcement less than 24-hours later.

In all likelihood, RIM had hoped to announce the new Curve at the WES conference next week. But we pesky boggers forced their hand.

Just goes to prove that in the age of the Internet, controlling the message is becoming increasingly difficult.

Telus Mobility Announces BlackBerry 8830 World Edition

Telus BlackBerry 8830According to our friends at BlackBerrySync, it looks like Telus Mobility is starting to spread word that the BlackBerry 8830 will "officially" soon be available on the Telus network in Canada in the next few months.

An official press release should be made by Telus any hour now, but the early reports state the phone will be available for $499 on a 3 year contract.

CrackBerry.com Fitness Challenge - Get Fit, Raise Money for Charity, and Spread the CrackBerry.com word!

The Crack Team in a Duathlon In my ongoing quest to maintain a healthy balance between CrackBerry addiction and other parts of my life, I have named 2007 to be my Year of Fitness. So far I have been doing pretty well - in the cold winter months I managed to exercise regularly at the gym and 98.6% of the time have even been able to pass up the Golden Arches in favor of healthy homecooked eats.

But now that spring is sprung and summer is nearly here I figure it's time for me to kick it up a notch and get outdoors and enjoy mother nature as much as possible.

And it seems my 2007 Summer of Fitness is off to a good start - I took my first outdoor jog this past Sunday by entering into the Winnipeg Iron Cops Half Marathon relay. Along with another blackberry-using friend, we each ran 6.5 miles (half of a half marathon). In addition to raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society, we also managed to raise some CrackBerry.com awareness by finishing 2nd place! Check out the Results - notice the team named CrackBerry.com?!?! The crowd loved our team name and our 2nd place award was presented by the city's police chief, who was very interested (a little too interested maybe?!) to learn what CrackBerry.com was all about.

Spreading the CrackBerry.com word, being healthy, and raising money for Charity - it seems like a no brainer to me.

Which means it's time for a CrackBerry.com FITNESS CHALLENGE.

Are you entering any fundraising fitness events in the next few months? Can you enter under a team name?

If so, I challenge you to enter your team name as "CrackBerry.com". Let's show the world that BlackBerry Addicts not only love their devices, but love helping others out as well.

I've started a new CrackBerry FITNESS CHALLENGE thread in the CrackBerry Forums. Go there for more details on the challenge and use it to take up the challenge and keep us posted on the results. Can you fundraise for your event online? Get the link up on this thread and the CrackBerry community will help you out! Finish in the top 3 in your event? I will definitely be sending you some BlackBerry goodies to celebrate!

Get Fit, Help Out, Spread the CrackBerry.com name. Are you up for the Challenge?

Mercedes and BlackBerry: The Perfect Combo

blackberry mercedes

This was actually released last month but we just came across it. Not living in Deutschland and all.

CrackBerry.com doesn’t condone driving and using your BlackBerry, but this solution may allow for safer and more effective use of the device in a vehicle. Luxury auto-maker Mercedes-Benz is extending its range of communication accessories to include a “Bluetooth telephony solution. The innovative telephone module allows you to use your BlackBerry in a Mercedes-Benz without physically connecting it to the vehicle. The modular solution is specially designed for in-car telecommunication and is also suitable for a select range of mobile phones which support the Bluetooth Hands Free Profile (HFP).

The module with HFP software complements the factory-fitted solutions currently offered and is available for virtually every Mercedes model series. The module is compatable with 8700g, 8700v and 8707v models of BlackBerry,

The new accessory makes using the phone while in the car even safer and more convenient. The biggest advantage is that the handheld or mobile phone can be left in your jacket pocket or handbag. The wireless Bluetooth connection between the device and the vehicle is established automatically. The module features a single button, which is used to activate the pairing process, where the mobile phone or BlackBerry is connected to the module for the first time. Once pairing has taken place, connection is always automatic.

Integration on board also allows safe, intuitive control of the telephone functions via the multifunction steering wheel, the audio system and the central instrument cluster display. Currently the accessory is available in Europe for a cool EUR 250.00.

No word on a North American release date. American auto partner Chrysler is offering a Bluetooth option on some of its models so Mercedes might want to look at potential coverage problems before launching the HFP in the US.

Who Needs A Satellite?

navison blackberry One of the knocks on BlackBerry Global Positioning Systems (GPS) is the need to have a special GPS receiver attached to your Berry. If this is something you are using all the time, then it’s no problem. But if it is something you might use occasionally, finding your blue tooth or GPS puck and loading everything up is a bit of a pain.

But, fear not, there is an alternative.

Mexens Technologies has just released their Navizon Virtual-GPS system, which uses clever cellular triangulation mapping to locate your position. GPS use satellites to assertain where you are. The Navison system measures your position by locating various predetermined cell phone towers and, by recording the various signal strengths, can estimate your position pretty accurately. The great advantage of this is that you don’t need a GPS receiver.

The application comes bundled with navigation-friendly MGMaps, a Java application which overlays the maps onto Navizon’s positioning data. The application also comes with points-of-interest, buddy tracking and direction services.

Navizon is available for download: simply go here from your wireless device. Navizon's Virtual GPS is available for a 15-day evaluation period and can be licensed for $24.99 after the trial's expiration.
