BlackBerry Smartphone maker Research In Motion (RIM) and BloombergUTV – India’s premier business news channel, today announced the launch of a unique Alarm Clock Application for BlackBerry PlayBook Tablets in an event at Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), Mumbai.
The Alarm Clock application tells its user what the Stock Market outlook for the day is by simply flashing a Green or Red light as the alarm rings. Beyond the user-defined settings, it sounds an alarm if the markets are behaving in a manner that needs the attention of the user.
These alarms can be triggered by general market events and the user’s investment profile based on BSE/NSE and commodity markets. The other obvious use of the application is to set morning alarms and other reminders through the day.
The Alarm Application dedicated to the Blackberry Playbook platform will be available for download within few days and promises to revolutionize the Markets interactivity experience for users in India.
Speaking at the launch event, Sunil Lalvani, Director Enterprise Sales – Research In Motion (RIM) India said, “We are very excited to be partnering with the launch of the Alarm Clock Application for BlackBerry PlayBook.
We have a strong segment of BlackBerry users who need to be updated with market data from around the world and this alarm app equips them with timely knowledge in a very simple manner. Obtaining near real-time access to world markets, currencies, commodities and stock quotes makes this application a powerful business tool. We truly appreciate the effort that has gone into the creation of this application designed exclusively for the BlackBerry PlayBook and its users.”.
