BlackBerry PlayBook for Business


RIM have this week released another video this time demonstrating the bridge between the PlayBook and a BlackBerry Smartphone. If you are not aware how this works I will explain the basics.

The PlayBook does not (currently) have its own PIN so BBM will not work until the device is paired, via Bluetooth, with a BlackBerry. Once done the PlayBook will then be able to be used for BBM, Calendar, email etc. However, once the connected between the two devices is broken all traces of the calendar and email will not be visible on the PlayBook. Now, although some people may snub this it is certainly great for security. In the unfortunate situation that your PlayBook is stolen your personal emails and calendar will not be accessible by the bad guys as they wont even be on the PlayBook!

Check out the video after the break to see the PlayBook in action:
