• BlackBerry To Integrate Mobile Technology Throughout BlackBerry Jam 2013

    BlackBerry plans to integrate mobile technology very heavily into the the BlackBerry Live conference on May 14-16. Now that a high percentage of users will have BlackBerry 10 devices, NFC will be a reality for almost everyone - unless you have an old BB7 phone (besides the 99xx).

    BlackBerry's goal for the BlackBerry Live conference is to integrate mobile technology in everything from discussions, sessions, to resources. Check out all the details below posted by Luke Reimer of the InsideBB DevBlog:

    Near Field Communication (NFC)

    One of my all-time favorite technologies, Near Field Communication (NFC) will be integrated into BlackBerry Live in a big way. You’ll be able to scan into BlackBerry Live and BlackBerry Jam sessions and interact with aspects of the venue using the BlackBerry Live Conference App, but that’s just the beginning. You’ll also be able to share contact information with sponsors, scoop up links to resources and web sites, and take advantage of all that BlackBerry 10 has to offer when it comes to NFC.

    BlackBerry Live Conference App

    Shortly before BlackBerry Live the Mobile Conference Guide app will be available in BlackBerry World for you to download. This will be your ultimate conference guide, including a wide range of features:

    • Find sessions, speaker, sponsor, and event details
    • Receive event update messages
    • View the conference agenda and floor plan
    • Build and edit your conference schedule
    • Scan into sessions using Near Field Communication (NFC)
    • Complete conference and session surveys
    • Share your information with conference sponsors using NFC
