It’s certainly quirky but you can actually turn your BlackBerry into a mouse and keyboard using MobiMouse and hook it up to a PC. With support for USB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections, mouse control is achieved using the BlackBerry trackball (or the touchpad on your BlackBerry Storm) to move the mouse pointer on Windows PCs. To get started, the host machine needs the MobiMouse configuration app installed, where you determine the communication type. Forget to instal this and you’re going nowhere fast. Testing on my Curve 8900 took a while to get used to, as the mouse pointer needs to be assigned certain behaviours, but it’s easy to see how convenient having a wireless, handheld mouse and keyboard would be for presentations. Shortcuts can be assigned too and you can even adjust the PCs audio output using the corresponding volume control keys on your BlackBerry. There’s trial version available, so you can see if novel navigator is for you.
