About the BlackBerry Presenter
The BlackBerry® Presenter is designed to allow you to deliver presentations with ease while you're on the go. You can display presentations
directly from your BlackBerry device on an external display, such as a video projector or television screen, without using a laptop computer.
You can wirelessly display files for Microsoft® PowerPoint® 97, 2000, 2003, and 2007 (.ppt files or .pptx files) and PDF files, including most
transitions and animations in slides. The BlackBerry Presenter supports presentations that use a 4:3 aspect ratio in landscape view.
