Your BlackBerry smartphone or PlayBook just might save your life. Ok, so it doesn’t double as an AED, nor will it even attempt to give you a Heimlich, but it can be used to give you that extra sense of personal security. It’s there when you need to look something up, compose an email or make a phone call, but is it really there when you need it the most? Sure it is! If you are unable to communicate for yourself, your ICE (In Case of Emergency) numbers can be easily programmed to each and every letter on your BlackBerry keyboard. You can mark contacts as important in your address book. Heck, a 3 year old can be taught through song to call 911 green or press “green green green”. That’s one BlackBerry advantage that is easily overlooked; easy access to a simple phone call - a call that could save your life. There’s no fumbling around to find a phone app, it’s ready to go at a moment’s notice. If you take a look around BlackBerry App World, you’ll find plenty of applications that should help to keep you safe as well. Let’s see what can be of use.
