07/19/2011, Research In Motion (RIM) recently rolled out the BlackBerry Tablet OS update – specifically meant for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Well, just as with any other decent update that rolls out, you can bet your bottom dollar that new features will be introduced, alongside added stability to the platform. What has been confirmed would be ZIP file support, in addition to new multimedia options.
07/01/2011, Before the BlackBerry PlayBook was released, it was mentioned that the tablet will need to pair up with another BlackBerry device in order to make use of certain functions such as checking emails and accessing the calendar on the tablet. While every other carrier had no problems with letting its subscribers make use of the app that provided the functionality (BlackBerry Bridge), AT&T didn’t. This meant that AT&T BlackBerry users […]
06/29/2011, Ever since the BlackBerry PlayBook was announced, there were plenty of rumors flying around hinting at RIM eventually releasing a larger version of the tablet shipping later this year. But now it looks like it’s not going to happen. The folks over at N4BB have reported that RIM has cancelled development on the 10″ BlackBerry PlayBook. How true the news is, is yet to be verified but since RIM has […]
06/09/2011, It looks like RIM really is serious about getting apps out for their recently released tablet. The company has just announced the release of a new app for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Called BlackBerry News, it functions as its namesake – letting people access all their favorite news sites, blogs and popular sites that use syndicated content so that all subscribed content can be accessed in one place. As long as […]
06/07/2011, In addition to the v1.0.5 update to the operating system that the PlayBook has received, the Facebook app on the BlackBerry PlayBook has been given a major boost, adding a whole bunch of new features that bring the tablet PlayBook experience closer to the one on the desktop. The updated Facebook app for the PlayBook now supports: Video uploading: a much requested feature that allows users to make use of […]
06/07/2011, We all know that the BlackBerry PlayBook is one great piece of technology, but its success has been marred mostly due to the lack of apps available for the system, and its dependence on having a BlackBerry phone to tether to. Well, the software side has been slowly improving, and as of today, we’ve got a new update to the tablet’s operating system to make things even better.
06/03/2011, The BlackBerry PlayBook has already been around for some time already, but while it boasts of solid hardware, the same cannot be said where software is concerned. After all, this just goes to reinforce the point that we have been sharing all this while – there is value in the software more than the hardware, which explains why seemingly inferior devices would do better in the market if they have […]
05/30/2011, We do know that there will be a WiMAX-enabled BlackBerry PlayBook rolling out sometime down the road, but there is no word on an exact date just yet. However, some enterprising sleuths who decided to rely on the power of Google managed to uncover a secret – the shipping date of such a PlayBook might be closer than you think. This is made possible thanks to a Google search that […]
05/24/2011, While we know that the BlackBerry PlayBook was taken apart only hours after it went on sale, iFixit’s guide only had text instructions and photographs to guide users through the process – not a very intuitive guide for folks who would rather have videos of someone guiding them through the process. Well, those people are in luck.
05/23/2011, The BlackBerry PlayBook has been out for awhile now, and we seem to be hearing more and more rumors about the tablet being a flop, with high return rates and underwhelming sales. However, we’ve also heard reports about the PlayBook selling as predicted and even doing better than retailers thought it would. In the meantime, RIM has been adamant about the tablet not being a flop, dismissing negative reports as […]
05/15/2011, The bad news surrounding the BlackBerry PlayBook by Research In Motion (RIM) does seem to pile up by the day – we have unofficial word via a Staples memo RIM will be recalling more than 900 BlackBerry PlayBook tablets, and since the memo failed to divulge the reason behind the recall, what better way than to hear from the horse’s mouth? Contacting RIM, here is what they had to say […]
05/06/2011, You know what’s strange? While the world is all crazy about tablets at the moment, don’t you think it is rather weird for a keyboard accessory to accompany whatever tablet that is in the market? Sure, if you would like to do plenty of typing and yet do not want to work those shoulder muscles unnecessarily, then why not carry around a netbook or a MacBook Air instead? The tablet […]
05/04/2011, The BlackBerry PlayBook from Sprint does seem to be shaping up to be a cursed device of sorts, as an internal document that was procured by BriefMobile do point towards the scrapping of its purported May 8th launch date, with dealers been told to hold off from selling the beleaguered tablet device until further notification (and with that, a subsequent date, of course). Too bad said date was not mentioned […]
05/04/2011, The folks over at BGR have sources who claim that RIM is already planning on releasing a follow up to its recently released BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. While the tablet hasn’t even been on the market for a month, with its 3G/4G versions yet to make an appearance, the second PlayBook tablet might actually just be a slight update of the PlayBook instead of a second-generation model. The main difference between […]
