MARGI Systems unveils Presenter-to-Go mobile presentation solution for Palm Tungsten T handhelds

MARGI Systems claims its Presenter-to-Go SD is the first product to allow presentations created in PowerPoint or any printable PC application to be transferred directly to the Palm Tungsten T handheld and displayed via a digital projector in high-quality, full-color, 1024 x 768 resolution.

MARGI Systems recently unveiled a Presenter-to-Go SD Card solution for Palm Inc.'s Palm Tungsten T, the first handheld from Palm's new Tungsten family of mobile professional and enterprise products. The MARGI Presenter-to-Go SD is the first product to allow presentations created in PowerPoint or any printable PC application to be transferred directly to the Palm Tungsten T handheld and displayed via a digital projector in high-quality, full-color, 1024 x 768 resolution.

The Palm Tungsten T handheld delivers significant innovations for Palm handhelds, say company representatives, including:
• A unique slider design that delivers Palm's most compact Palm-branded handheld on the market
• One-handed, 5-way navigation for convenient access to data while on the go
• A 320 x 320 color screen
• Palm OS 5 and the Texas Instrument OMAP1510 processor for new power to run data-intensive and multimedia applications
• Voice memo recording capabilities and stereo-quality sound
• Integrated Bluetooth for wireless connectivity to other Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as phones, printers, PCs and network access points.

Backed by the new ARM processor, the Tungsten T handheld features increased computing speed and power.

"The combination of MARGI Presenter-to-Go SD and the Palm Tungsten T handheld offers today's professionals an entirely mobile presentation solution," contends Paul Leeper, chief evangelist, Palm Solutions Group. "Palm Tungsten T handheld users can leave their laptop at home, walk into any environment with their Palm handheld, and instantly deliver professional quality presentations."

As airports around the country continue to increase security measures, the National Business Travel Association (NBTA) has recently recommended limiting carry-on baggage to the bare essentials, easing travelers through busy security checkpoints and reducing the size of carry-on luggage. The compact combination of Palm Tungsten T handheld and MARGI Presenter-to-Go SD offers a lightweight presentation solution that eases frequent travel headaches. This presentation solution allows speakers to create presentations from multiple applications, including PowerPoint, HTML, and Microsoft Word as well as display local handheld content via the MARGI Mirror application.

Users are also able to selectively hide and show slides, drag and drop slides, view slide text and presentation notes, continuously loop slide shows, view slide thumbnails, and make on-screen annotations.

MARGI Systems' Presenter-to-Go SD presentation solution comes with an SD Card/cable for use with the Palm Tungsten T handheld, software for slide creation from PowerPoint or any printable Windows application, and the MARGI Mirror for displaying local handheld content. The Presenter-to-Go SD also features an annotation feature, which enables presenters to instantly project notes taken on their handhelds during their presentations. Also included is a 14-button infrared remote control, an A/C adapter, and a projector adapter cable. Presenter-to-Go SD sells for $199.
