BlackBerry PlayBook – business benefits

BlackBerry PlayBook – business benefits

The BlackBerry PlayBook launches in the US tomorrow but does it really have a place in business?

If you already use BlackBerrys in your business then its out-of-the-box compatibility with the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server is a distinct advantage giving secure and managable corporate data access.

PlayBook allows you to wirelessly connect to your BlackBerry® smartphone for real time access to emails, calendar, address book, task list and BBM™. Giving you the same experience as on your smartphone, only larger.

RIM also promises a ‘professional grade performance’, including:

  • Full computing power in a tablet format
  • 1 GHz dual-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Symmetric multi-processing

We can’t wait to get our hands on one, so watch out for the review. In meantime, only time will tell whether this ‘amplified BlackBerry experience’ will be a successful player in the highly competitive tablet market.
