VIDEO: Button and Bean founder Tracy Gray on mobile business management

Tracy Gray, founder and CEO of the innovative jewellery brand Button and Bean, spoke to Blackberry and explained how she used her phone for managing a start-up. Gray says that in her business (custom silver jewellery modelled around a fingerprint) she uses the device to reply to email queries and manage expenses and invoices. It also means she doesn't have to take up space with a laptop.

Part of the technology available from Blackberry handsets is the Enterprise Server Express. A free service that offers automatic syncing of emails, calendars and task lists, a free/busy lookup on your calendar and remote file management. All very useful stuff in the time-consuming early days of getting a business off the ground.

We're big fans of Blackberry's kit here at Smarta HQ (we want you to be too - check out our competition to win a Pearl handset!) and they haven't been hanging around. The PlayBook is about to land in our shops any moment, and the whispers are that the Storm 4 will also be released this year.

The team at Research In Motion have also been focusing on developing the Blackberry App World - and we recently asked Rory O'Neill, the senior director of business marketing at RIM to give us his pick of the best Blackberry business apps.
