BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 demo videos

Screen Shot 2012-01-10 at 18.36.50

Kevin from CrackBerry.com has been lucky enough to get hands on with OS 2.0 for the BlackBerry PlayBook over at the CES show in Las Vegas today. We posted the features of the new improved software just yesterday but now we can see exactly how cool these new improvements actually are.

With social integration throughout the email, contacts and calendar applications these new native features will really make us PlayBook users so so happy.

Another superb feature is using your BlackBerry Smartphone as a remote control for the PlayBook. One word: “amazing”.

If you don’t use/own a PlayBook I strongly urge you to watch the below videos.  I think you will agree that RIM are making vast improvements with the tablet OS and I for one cant wait until next month when the new software version rolls out.

Thanks to CrackBerry.com for the following videos:
