RIM has been pushing hard for its PlayBook to gain a market share in the tablet world, even slashing its prices to put its tablet
into the hands of many users. RIM is also banking on a list of new
features on its major software update to attract many people. It gave a
glimpse of what the new PlayBook 2.0 can do at DevCon Europe.
Among the nifty features shown by RIM was the use of your BlackBerry handset
as a controller on your PlayBook. It’s part of the revamped features of
the BlackBerry Bridge. Basically you get to transform your compatible
phone into a touchpad or even a keypad for your tablet, which could be
handy in making some presentations.
PlayBook 2.0 also has a more feature-rich calendar, with the days
when you are busy getting more emphasis. RIM plans to release the update
this month so it won’t be a long wait for PlayBook users.
