Free Audi Roadside App for BlackBerry Now Available in BlackBerry App World

May 11th, 2011

Audi The free Audi Roadside App has been released with several great features to help users connect directly with Audi and its roadside assistance from their BlackBerry devices. The App leverages the Audi customer’s pre-registered vehicle information, a smartphone’s GPS capabilities and an intuitive interface to ease calls for roadside assistance. It provides an easy solution for Audi owners to make good use of the free roadside assistance services when necessary.

Features include:

  • Vehicle registration – Drivers simply provide their Audi’s vehicle identification number (VIN) and some basic personal information to register the App with their customer information on file. This provides Audi Roadside Services your specific details when you request service, and greatly shortens the time it takes to dispatch service.
  • Audi Roadside Assistance – With a few simple steps, the driver selects the type of service they require (e.g. jump start, fuel delivery, tire change or tow) and the App locates the driver via the smart phone’s GPS capabilities. The assistance request is sent to the Audi Roadside Assistance dispatcher as the call is connected to enable the dispatcher to provide faster service. Once the dispatch is complete, the App captures and conveniently stores the dispatch details, including the name of the roadside provider en route to the customer and estimated time of arrival.
  • Dealer Locator – For convenient access to dealer information, the App allows users to search for dealers nearby or within a given city. The App displays the dealer’s name, location, hours of operation and phone number. With one touch, the user can display nearby dealers on a map or immediately call the dealer. This is particularly helpful when a service appointment is required immediately.

May 5th, 2011

Poynt Playbook with a larger screen size has been dreamed by many users for a few days. Accordingly to BGR guys, it seems that RIM has been working hard on it. As BlackBerry World 2011 coming to the end, there are some news to be announced after the conference, one of which indicated that RIM is planning to release its follow-up to the BlackBerry PlayBook in the fall time this year.

This new version of BlackBerry PlayBook, has a prompt feature – its 10-inch screen which will definitely satisfy users’ demand for a bigger screen than the 7-inch one does. Along with the bigger size, an update OS (may be OS 7) that includes an email client, BBM and more that could really hit the sweet spot is also to be launched.

Some analysts suggest that RIM wants to play in both segments of the tablet market, and the new version of PlayBook (“PlayBook 2”) could probably be thought of as an additional PlayBook model as opposed to the second-generation tablet.

Simply by selecting the ‘Pair with PlayBook’ tab in Poynt on their PlayBook and entering their BlackBerry PIN#, users can successfully pair their BlackBerry smartphone with the BlackBerry PlayBook. A security code will then be given to enter under a ‘Pair with PlayBook’ menu item on their BlackBerry smartphones.
