One of the things I personally think the PlayBook has been lacking is accessories. Yes, there are rapid charging stands and some cool covers/cases for it, but we're still waiting for a couple of cool accessories to make their way to our tablets; one of them being a docking station. Apparently PlayBook won't have to be waiting forever to get their hands on one. The guys at BlackBerryCzech have gotten some pretty cool pictures of what they say is RIM's upcoming OEM PlayBook docking station. Some of the reported features include:
Up to 3 USB ports
RJ-45 input (Ethernet input)
Wireless Receiver which can be used to make and receive calls
We mentioned late last year that RIM would be releasing an official Bluetooth keyboard for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Our sources mentioned that it would be released around the same time OS 2.0 would be released. Recently more information on this accessory has surfaced and it looks promising. Here are some details on the features:

RIM sure knows how to throw a party. Last night in NYC, RIM went all out in the BBM Ugly Sweater Event and TwistMyMind and yours truly were lucky enough to attend. As it would turn out the night was a complete success for RIM and everyone that was there.
The main focus of the night were the 30 winners of the #BBMUglySweater contest on Twitter whom each received an AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9900 and a pretty cool gift bag as the grand prize. The gift bag included a BBM Music shirt, BlackBerry winter gloves and a couple other BlackBerry goodies. RIM also set up an open bar for all the guests and attendees to enjoy as well as different kinds of hors d'oeuvres through out the night, which were delicious.
