Nextel Communications Inc. (Reston, VA, U.S.) has named the mPOD(TM) by MedicTouch(TM), the winner of the BlackBerry 6510 Extensibility Challenge. The contest was open to independent software vendors and developers who build and support applications that leverage the Mobile Data Service (MDS) feature of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) and run on Nextel's nationwide voice and data iDen network.

MedicTouch (North Miami Beach, FL, U.S.) took first place for its Mobile Pulse Oximeter Device (mPOD) that provides remote blood oxygen content and pulse readings on the BlackBerry 6510.

Dr. Eran Schenker, MedicTouch founder and medical director, says that MedicTouch’s goal is to develop high-quality, wireless wearable health-monitoring products to meet the demands of an always changing healthcare market. "The BlackBerry Enterprise Server and the hand-held device from Nextel presented the perfect platform for our business user demands," Dr. Schenker said.

The BlackBerry Extensibility Challenge required developers to create programs that serve enterprise customers for key vertical segments, including transportation and logistics; financial and insurance; manufacturing and distribution; government/public sector and higher education; and utilities.

Applications were judged on five equally weighted criteria: use of the MDS feature of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for corporate data access; relevance of the application to the different priority business segments; capability of the contestant to deploy, support and market the application; contestants business model including return on investment (ROI) estimates; and overall application quality.
