    Conduits Technologies, Inc. Announces Pocket Slides 2.5 for Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC

    Pictured, left to right: Pocket Slides Normal View; Slide Sorter. More screenshots are available at the Pocket Slides website.

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK, August 22, 2006 - Conduits Technologies, Inc. announced today the release of Pocket Slides 2.5, a fully-featured presentation solution for Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC, Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition and Pocket PC 2002 devices. Pocket Slides enables users to create, edit, view and give presentations on a mobile device. Existing presentations from Microsoft PowerPoint can be transferred from the desktop to the device using Pocket Slides' conversion software. Pocket Slides 2.5 improves upon earlier versions by introducing additional device and desktop compatibility, enabling new options for VGA and projector output and a multitude of bug fixes.


    Pocket Slides now fully supports all Windows Mobile 5-powered Pocket PC devices. The new release works with all current Pocket PC devices, including the Treo 700w, as well as all older models, including Windows Mobile 2003SE, 2003 and 2002 version devices. This release is fully compliant with square screen devices as well as screen rotation. During presentations, the slide display uses the Pocket PC's screen rotation to display landscape-oriented slides, which yields better performance for animations and transitions. On older devices without built-in screen rotation support, Pocket Slides rotates the slides on-the-fly.

    The conversion utility that Pocket Slides 2.5 uses to convert PowerPoint (PPT) files into Pocket Slides (CPT) files has been improved, with full support for PowerPoint 2003 as well as the upcoming PowerPoint 2007 release. Pocket Slides also supports slide dimensions other than landscape, such as A4-size and portrait-mode documents.


    i-mate K-JAM (T-Mobile MDA) Pocket PC connected to the Spectec miniSD VGA output device, displaying a Pocket Slides presentation on external monitor (shown in background).

    Pocket Slides 2.5 greatly builds on its support for VGA output peripherals for Pocket PC devices. The Dell Axim X50v and X51v units feature VGA-output ability by way of a cable attachment to the bottom of the Pocket PC, is now supported. This is currently the favored way to give a presentation with a Pocket PC, as the "onboard" VGA chip yields the best performance. Other supported VGA solutions include several CompactFlash VGA cards, such as the Colorgraphic Voyager card.

    Pocket Slides has new methods to move presentations out of Pocket Slides once editing is finished. The "Export slides" command lets the user export one slide or all slides to either JPEG or PNG image formats. The user also has the option to export "intra-animation" steps in the slide as separate images. For instance, each item in a bulleted list animation would be saved as a separate image.

    The new export function is used with the new Spectec SDV-840/841/842 VGA output device. This SD (/miniSD/microSD) card device features a "dongle" which connects to a VGA cable (for a projector) or to an S-Video cable (for a television). The bundled software contains a JPEG viewer, and can load up a deck of images that Pocket Slides 2.5 has exported, and present them on its device, complete with remote control.


    Since its release in 2004, Pocket Slides 2 has undergone several internal revisions and been subject to many external tests from beta users. This process has led to the resolution of every bug reported in the Pocket PC installation, and all errors and problems in the conversion process has been fixed in the desktop installation. For example, many PowerPoint 2003 presentations would cause errors (or noncompletion) to occur during the conversion process, and those problems have been resolved. Some presentations linking to external sounds and music were not transferring those sounds to the device, and those presentations are now converting properly. On the Pocket PC, complex timed animations were not being presented properly, and that problem has been fixed. This feature is useful for presentations that are synchronized to music.


    Pocket Slides 2.5 is available as a 30-day commercial demo from http://www.conduits.com, where the user can download and evaluate the software.

    Pocket Slides 2.5 is available for purchase at $39.95. More information, including a full list of features, complete documentation and screenshots can be found on the Pocket Slides website at: http://www.conduits.com/products/slides/. Upgrades for customers who purchased Pocket Slides 2.0 are free, and for those who purchased version 1.X, are priced at $19.95 from http://store.conduits.com/posl2up.html.   (Source: Press Release)
