    RIM Releases Mini Keyboard For The BlackBerry PlayBook



    A few days ago we found out that the BlackBerry Mini keyboard was available for pre-sale. Now this nice little keyboard is available at ShopBlackBerry.com for select locations worldwide. We have been waiting quite a while now for an official keyboard to come out from RIM, and first heard about it at the BlackBerry Innovation forums in Washington DC late last year.

    Bluetooth devices have been a hit or a miss when it comes to solid connectivity to the PlayBook so I am looking forward to this one that is designed by RIM. The keyboard is actually pretty feature rich. Here are some highlights taken from the Inside BlackBerry for Business Blog . You will want to check out the video at the end as well.

    Multi-touch Control

    BlackBerry Mini Keyboard comes equipped with a touchpad to allow you to navigate your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Tap the touchpad to simulate a mouse click, tap with two fingers to right-click, and scroll vertically using a two-finger up or down swipe. These gestures make it a breeze to get up and running and begin interacting with the device as well as apps like the Citrix Receiver.

    Ultimate Portability


    The portability of the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard with the convertible case provides a mobile computer solution that’s easy to take with you. An added benefit is the screen real estate available to you when using the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard with your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

    Security and Power

    BlackBerry Mini Keyboard is designed to connect via Bluetooth® to your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, and features 128-bit encryption to help keep the connection secure. You can charge your BlackBerry Mini Keyboard using your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet charger to keep things simple and remove any need for extra wires and equipment. But that’s not even the best part – the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard can last up to 30 days on a single charge depending on your usage!The keyboard working along with the Citrix Receiver enables users to have their desktop any place at anytime.

    Hello Paul and welcome to

    That customized UI is the Citrix Receiver third party application, which allows users to remotely access their Windows desktop and apps from the PlayBook tablet.

    Thank you.
