BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) this week quietly unveiled the free, mobile-conference-guide application for its upcoming 2010 Wireless Enterprise Symposium (WES) event, to be held in Orlando, Fla., from April 27 to 29.
The new app, BlackBerry WES Mobile Guide, offers users a full list of WES 2010 sessions and speakers, a customizable scheduling tool, as well as an area for related news and blogs. And a “Getting Around” section for Orlando transportation information helps WES 2010 attendees find their way around the conference and surrounding area. But the application also provides a pile of information for folks who might not be able to make it to Florida, but who are still interested in the conference events.
Registered WES 2010 attendees can log into their “My Scheduler” tool after completing the conference registration process, to save their specific WES plans via the application. And the app uses “push” to deliver relevant news and information updates as they become availableor at least it prompts new users to enable push for this reason.
BlackBerry WES Mobile Guide can be downloaded from BlackBerry App World, RIM’s mobile app store. And it’s available for all BlackBerry devices on all carriers, according to RIM.
Hope to see ya in Orlando.
