RIM Adding Wireless Media Server File Sharing to BlackBerry Smartphones

Wireless Media Sharing 

The latest leak of the BlackBerry 2012 roadmap (via BGR) highlights an interesting new feature that we have not heard about before. It includes a new Wireless Media Server and seems like it is specifically for BlackBerry smartphones. What it supposedly does is let you share video, images, and music over Wi-Fi as a form of file sharing. The leaked slides do not show if this also does DLNA streaming but my guess is it will work like the PlayBook file sharing over Wi-Fi. Let me know what you think!

  1. Another nice feature to look forward too…

  2. I’m not sure what the use cases are…
    I’m going to share my blurry pics taken with my PlayBook with my friends’ TV? Well, I can show them straight on the PlayBook, but I’d rather share the ones I took from my phone.
    I could even show the phone’s pics on the PlayBook if only it could connect to a DLNA server…

    Maybe I’m taking some movies with me and I’m going to stream them to a PS3 connected to a TV because it’s so much simpler than connecting the PlayBook to the TV directly?

    OK, maybe I’m not being fair, maybe there is a use to having a media server on the PlayBook, but it’s much more important to have a DLNA client on there first imho…

  3. Yeah the PlayBook already has this. On the phones it will simply let you do things like sync your music and pictures to it wirelessly

    • You said “to it”. That would imply that there is some sort of client on the PlayBook, otherwise, I guess the bridge would be enough to show pictures on the PlayBook, no?
