Playbook vs iPad – Video


Research in Motion today posted a rather interesting video on their YouTube channel. A comparison of the Playbooks web browser along side the Apple iPad.

As you will see RIM are clearly rather excited about the performance of the PlayBook and I don’t blame them. It looks like the PlayBook’s browser totally out shines the iPad’s.

With the added bonus of full flash support the PlayBook has certainly got my attention now.

See the video after the break.

Kik Messenger pulled from BlackBerry App World

kik-messenger-logo If you listened to our podcast a couple of weeks ago you may have heard me talking about Kik messenger and how great it seemed to be. For reasons unknown the app is now not currently in BlackBerry App World. Why RIM have pulled it only makes us think that they are not keen on a BBM contender.

If you are not familiar with Kik it is essentially a cross platform instant messaging app but like BBM it shows you when a contact has had a message delivered and also when has read it.

This is the official word from RIM:

"RIM became aware of a number of issues and customer concerns regarding the Kik app and service and, following discussions with Kik, the app was removed from BlackBerry App World. RIM is actively reviewing the issues and potential resolutions, and is also continuing its discussions with Kik."


Please let us have it back RIM. I love being able to use Kik to stay in touch with my iOS and Android friends.
