BlackBerry® Tag, which will be incorporated in the next BlackBerry® 7 OS update*, will allow users to share contact information, documents, URLs, photos and other multimedia content by simply tapping their BlackBerry smartphones together. BlackBerry Tag will also enable friends to instantly add one another as contacts on BBM™ (BlackBerry® Messenger).
RIM and Neomar also announced that the first output of this alliance will be support for Lotus Sametime Everyplace using BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds. Lotus Sametime Everyplace is a new product that extends Lotus Sametime's Awareness and Instant Messaging features to mobile devices. Lotus Sametime Everyplace gives mobile workers a way to locate and instantly communicate with connected colleagues, while providing office-based users awareness and access to remote/mobile staff. RIM is demonstrating Lotus Sametime Everyplace with BlackBerry at the Lotus DevCon2001 conference this week in Las Vegas. "End-to-end security is one of the critical underpinnings of BlackBerry's success in the corporate sector that has already allowed us to deploy the BlackBerry wireless email solution in more than 8,000 organizations. RIM and Neomar will now begin to enable a range of additional wireless applications with continuous encryption at all points between the corporate servers behind firewalls to the BlackBerry handhelds." said Jim Balsillie, Chairman and Co- CEO at Research In Motion. "Our first application of this technology will allow support for Lotus Sametime Everyplace which means that BlackBerry customers will be able to manage their instant messaging as well as their email and organizer from a single wireless handheld."
The Occupy Wall Street activists are no strangers to social media. In addition to live-streaming their demonstrations and publishing a professional newspaper to document their efforts, they are also turning to Vibe, a free application that lets people post short messages anonymously to a microblog, similar to Twitter. But unlike Twitter and most services on the Web these days, Vibe does not require users to create an account or log in to to read and share messages. It is still very small, but has recently started to grow. Vibe was created by Hazem Sayed, a 53-year-old New York business consultant who has been working on mobile applications in his spare time for years. He recently helped release a service called AskLocal that lets people pose questions to one another in a specific location. He decided to build Vibe in May after observing a march in Manhattan and realizing that a similar service would be helpful for people who needed to quickly communicate with those directly around them. Twitter, he felt, had too many users to do that efficiently. “Instead of using hashtags to try and filter messages, you can use location to filter what you share and see,” he said. Anonymous messages can be broadcast to others using the application within an area as narrow as 150 feet to as wide as 300 miles — or shared globally.
