    BBM Video Icon Spotted On PlayBook!


    The upcoming PlayBook and its upcoming release have been the source of rumors, excitement, speculation and surprises. In today's day and age of Skype and the iPhone, video calls are becoming increasingly popular and let's face it, fun! One of the things that customers and critics alike have wanted to see on the PlayBook was a front-facing camera that would allow users to video chat with others.

    RIM is notorious for their leaks (or lack thereof) of information; up until now there was very little word about a video conference client other than the face that there would be one. It's safe to say that many tech-nerd dreams are coming true today as a leaked picture shows a BBM Video icon on the Rogers PlayBook.

    " From what we understand now, you won’t be able to BBM without bridging your BlackBerry over to the PlayBook." - PocketBerry
    If the above quote is true, what about the users that own a PlayBook but may not own a BlackBerry? Maybe RIM's not anticipating too many non-BlackBerry users to jump aboard the PlayBook.

    What do you think?

    It only makes sense for RIM to incorporate video call facilities on the playbook. An absence thereof would seem like they aren’t planning ahead. However, bridging with your phone as the only means to use this facility would be rather restricting.

    Right, BBM Video will be like the equivalent to iOS's very popular Facetime app.
