BBM for PlayBook via BlackBerry Bridge, "coming within a few weeks"
A lot of you BlackBerry users out there were very eager today as you grabbed hold of your new Tablet to try out the cornerstone feature of 'Social BlackBerry' - the BlackBerry Messenger app. But only eyes of disappointment set in for users as BlackBerry Messenger is not yet available on the PlayBook via BlackBerry Bridge. CrackBerry was able to get a hold of RIM about this. RIM answered:
Are you one of the disappointed? Should RIM have had BBM set in place on launch?
…a software update for BBM functionality is expected to be available within a few weeks, and customers will be able to download the software update over-the-air.
