RIM's BlackBerry Presenter makes mobile PowerPoint all too sexy

BlackBerry users tend to fancy themselves true road warriors -- you know, the kinds of road warriors that live and die most days by a four-shot latte and a copy of Office. It's exactly for these types of folks that RIM seems to have designed the new BlackBerry Presenter, a slick little module measuring 86 x 60 x 23mm that connects to your compatible handset wirelessly and lets you beam up a PowerPoint preso via VGA or S-Video connection. As you mesmerize your crowd with the 24 supported animations and 55 transition styles, you can read your notes right from the comfort of your BlackBerry's display, controlling the whole show without a single laptop in sight. The Presenter hits this month online for $199 and follows up in stores in February, and if you're interested, you can start things off by upgrading from your Pearl 8200 or Curve 8300 -- those puppies won't be supported.
