    Default First PowerPoint (Docs-to-go) with Z30

    Hi All, just like to share my experiences with the Z30, some peripherals, the Docs-to-Go app, and presenting a PowerPoint show (Office 2010 pptx doc).

    I had an HDMI adapter to allow hook-up to the VGA port on data projector (startech VGA adapter). I had the show on a USB stick using the USB-on-the-go feature (startech USB OTG adapter). I had a Logitech bluetooth keyboard designed for tablets and Microsoft bluetooth mouse hooked up.

    The presentation ran smoothly (I actually just opened the powerpoint doc and within 3 secs it just jumped right into the show). I did not try any of the fancy presentation views. The keyboard allowed me to immediately used the T and B keys for top and bottom of show, the P and N keys for previous and next and the I and O keys for zoom in and out. Mouse fully integrated as if you were swiping with your finger.

    The battery went from 95% to 25% after constantly showing the slide show for 4 hours (audience took breaks but I did not turn off the show).

    I was pretty happy with the experience and will be trying it again. I expected the battery drain, so was not surprized by that (more surprized I had any left and did not need to plug in).

    Anyone else have any input, like different set-up, trying different slideshow views or got longer battery life?

    The experience with docs-to-go is on of the best in the whole market! @work we have long presentations full of media. The Z10 is tho only device which is capable of handling the presentation!
    The only thing: please include media presentation within the slides! This is the only one. The rest is perfect FOR ME!

    That's pretty cool but what I am really interested in knowing is, how did the audience react when they saw this done from a Blackberry?

    Thanks schwartze, I'll remember that.

    calicocat, actually that was the only bad thing, I couldn't brag because the equipment (except for the keyboard and mouse) had to be set up out of site. So many people did even notice what was going on. I was first in and last out so no one saw me set up or tear down. I think one person saw my home screen at the end, because he shot me a quick smile after seeing my BB logo I use as a background. Otherwise no comments, I think after 4 hrs people were generally just happy to get out of there.

    Quite the drain on the battery, but that is some pretty serious use of peripherals. Good to see the Z30 performed. Can't wait to get mine

    I did a short 15 minute BlackBerry Express presentation with my Z10 and an HDMI capable projector. Got a few oohs and aahs from those in attendance hehe
