Dubai, UAE – GITEX – October 10, 2011 – During his keynote presentation at the GITEX conference in Dubai, Research In Motion Co-CEO Jim Balsillie today unveiled a new way for BlackBerry® smartphone users to connect with one another and share multimedia content.
BlackBerry® Tag 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 BlackBerry® Messenger.
BlackBerry Tag is an exciting and innovative feature that makes sharing contact information and multimedia content effortless and seamless
BlackBerry Tag opens a new dimension to the BlackBerry platform that is powerful, simple and intuitive and we think it will be welcomed by both users and developers.
BlackBerry Tag takes advantage of NFC technology included in the recently launched BlackBerry Bold & Curve smartphones. RIM also announced plans to expose BlackBerry Tag through APIs on the BlackBerry platform, allowing software developers to take advantage of “tap to share” functionality from within their own applications.
