About three months ago I purchased my BlackBerry PlayBook and I have to say that I fell in love instantly.  Not only is it sleek looking and appealing to the senses, it provides exactly what I need to stay productive on the go.  I can leave my laptop behind, grab my PlayBook and keep things moving all day long while in or out of the office.  The biggest bonus for me is that I don’t have to be somewhere that allows me access to a wireless network to have access to the internet.  Now that’s a beautiful thing!

BlackBerry Bridge can be used  to connect a PlayBook with a BlackBerry smartphone to access work email, calendar, BlackBerry Messenger, files and other data directly on the tablet while maintaining your work environment’s existing level of security.  This nifty little app lets you see whatever is on your BlackBerry smartphone on your PlayBook tablet.  The new 2.0 software allows a BlackBerry smartphone to be used as a wireless keyboard and mouse to control a PlayBook remotely and wirelessly.  You can also opt for a mini keyboard if you like.

Built-in messages lets you quickly and easily manage email and social network messages with a unified inbox.  Messaging is super easy with inline editing and the ability to use bold, underlining and italics, just as you would directly from your email program.

The newsreels feature and a people view of the day included in the calendar gives you info about those on your calendar and the contacts app acts more like a social hub, gathering information from your social networks (Twitter, FaceBook and LinkedIn) to give you a complete profile of your contacts.

It’s easy to connect with clients and colleagues with the video chat from PlayBook to PlayBook that allows you to continue to use other apps while you’re chatting. Oh, and did I mention that this tablet has 2 cameras?  That’s right–front and rear facing HD cameras.

The Documents To Go feature lets you view and edit your MS Word, Excel and Power Point docs.  You can also print from your desktop or laptop to your PlayBook with Print To Go.

If security is a concern, not to worry.  The operating system is designed from the ground up to be resilient and secure.  The PlayBook was the first tablet to achieve FIPS 140-2 certification, making it trusted by governments and other organizations for which security is of the utmost importance.

These are just a few of the great features and conveniences that this tool affords you to help keep your day and your company moving.  PlayBook brings together the best of BlackBerry communications, powerful productivity tools and your favorite apps, along with collaboration and communication tools to help you make the most out of every opportunity.  If you’re looking for a tool that can help you get it done, BlackBerry Playbook is the one.  Click to learn more about BlackBerry PlayBook and its features.
