Remote Control on the BlackBerry PlayBook – Video

Screen Shot 2012-02-21 at 11.09.35

One of the many new features in OS 2.0 for the BlackBerry PlayBook is the ability to control the PlayBook from your BlackBerry smartphone. The feature is part of the latest version of the Bridge app that got an update last night.

While it may not be a feature that is used every day I can see two big benefits with it. Clearly for business presentations it will allow the user to control the PlayBook remotely therefore letting he/she free to move around the room.

Secondly, and where I will use it is just plugging the PlayBook into the TV via HDMI. I can now sit back on the sofa and have full PlayBook control without having to worry about a long cable.

You can see a quick demo of the app in action below.
