Pocket Slides enables users to create, view or give presentations using a mobile
device. Existing presentations from Microsoft® PowerPoint® may be copied to the
device with the aid of the drag-and-drop conversion that Pocket Slides offers.
Closely mirroring the functionality of Microsoft® PowerPoint®, Pocket Slides
incorporates a myriad of creative animations, transitions, varied fonts, text
colors, and shapes. Pocket Slides marks the first occasion for users of Pocket
PC 2002 to give a presentation using solely their Pocket PC device. With the
use of a peripheral VGA card attached to the Pocket PC, Pocket Slides enables
the device to connect with a projector system, alleviating the need for laptops.
"We're honored and absolutely delighted to receive the award for best PowerPoint
and Presentation solution. The competition in this category was fierce, and the
award recognizes the fact that editing slides is a feature that users find
necessary in a mobile presentation solution," said Conduits President and CEO,
