Longtime Blackberry User Gets A ‘Companion’ Device

April 7th, 2010

I’ve been a Blackberry user for a long time – a really long time.  I’ve become a master of the ‘intuitive’ text feature (with only one phrase being the bane of my existence, but that’s another story) and I’m a fan of the small form factor of the Pearl 8110 – it fits easily in your front pocket, does most everything I need it to do, and is a very reliable device.

However this year, as in years past with Intel, I’ve been asked to take the lead on a new media vehicle and explore all of our options for marketing and advertising programs in that space.  Hence, my Blackberry got a mate – in the form of an iPhone.  Now, I’ve been a long time ‘listener’ but have made the transition to first time ‘caller’…to use a radio talk show line.  I’m not convinced that I’m going to be excited about carrying two devices (although many of my counterparts already do it), it is a necessary evil to be proficient in the trends of the mobile web.  Next step – securing an Android device…

We’re pretty excited about the opportunities that are presenting themselves in the mobile space and are intent on creating some innovative and first mover programs that bring the Intel brand to a ‘third’ screen.  We’ve already done some good work in the Americas with our iPhone app and our Global team has partnered with a leading mobile agency and a leading web-based streaming music company to create a compelling mobile experience that gives iPhone users a unique ‘station’ modeled after the 3 types of ‘Core’ processors – each providing a unique listening experience.  This is the first time a custom channel has been developed for a mobile device on Pandora – kudos to our Global team for making that happen.

Stay tuned – it’s going to be an exciting ride on the Mobile Web for us this year.
