Some questions I have about the BB Presenter.
Is this thing just a piece of junk?
We bought one at work because some non-technical higher-up wanted one and I just dont see it working.
First off, the goal is to do things like board reports, etc which are usually 35-50MB ppt files that contain somewhere around 50 slides.
So far in testing it took over 15 minutes to transfer the presentation and once that completed the presentation didn't even come up through the presenter.
Does anyone have some fairly in-depth experience with this thing? Can you name limitations you've faced, and things to consider when using this device?
I've heard from RIM employees that it's such a piece of garbage, they don't even use them there!
One of the bosses here is good friends with Mike L, and he recently bought one himself... he's good with technology, but I fear he's going to be quite upset when trying to use this device.
Oh and a side note, the software for the BB contains a version for OS 6.0 so are we lookng at a September release?
