It’s almost half a year since I started using the Blackberry and have grown to like it. Beside some of its short-comings as in speed of opening applications and available third-party apps of any real use, I do like the phone and am already thinking of upgrading to one of the newer global models on the market, unless I hold-out and wait for the release of the much hyped Apple iPhone.
What I would like to see is a way of remotely controlling the Blackberry from a desktop. Using it for work as I do, I don’t want to be fiddling with it when I need to use it. I would rather just handle all day-to-day operations directly from my desktop and use the Blackberry when I’m on the move. The post at the new Blackberry forum says it all:
As a front-end web developer and SEO, I work all day with my Blackberry in its
cradle near my PC. I am constantly in need of it to speak with clients and
speak with contractors via text and BB Messenger. If there was a way this could
flash up on the screen instead and not have to use the phone itself while working
it would be quite handy. Remotely Operate Blackberry from Desktop >>
I have looked at a couple of applications that may do this but have had no real luck as most of them allow you to control the desktop from the Blackberry but not the other way around. More upsetting there is available software for other phones such as Sony P series and Nokia.
