View Broadcasted Powerpoint Presentations Over Windows Phone 7

Microsoft is without doubt the leader when it comes to enterprise productivity tools with Microsoft Office being the most popular application suite. Quite logically, Microsoft has tried to transform this success into their edge in their recent smartphone foray with  Windows Phone 7.

As you may already know, the latest 2010 version of Microsoft Office lets users broadcast Powerpoint presentations. The presenter may set up their computer as the host and choose to broadcast their presentations. This will create a temporary session on the Microsoft server that is then available to be viewed on a shareable link on other computers in remote locations.

Apparently, this link is also viewable on Windows Phone 7 handsets with no set up required. Users clicking on the broadcast link are seamlessly taken to the Powerpoint show being broadcast – a great way to attend conference calls and meetings while you are away from the computer.
