Be sure to let us know in the comments if you have any Mother's Day gift ideas of your own!BlackBerry PlayBook
The slim, sleek and ultra-portable BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is small enough to throw in their purse yet powerful enough to keep up with the daily grind. She’ll take it anywhere, whether it is to the mall, a kids’ dance recital or big game, or on a family vacation. The PlayBook is now equipped with enhanced communication tools built in, including calendar, contacts and messages. Perhaps most helpful for busy moms is the new and improved calendar feature whereby busy days appear larger for a quick and easy way to see which dates are jam-packed with activities.
Many ideal apps for moms are available, including Word Press for those that blog or keep personal diaries, various cooking apps, such as Cooklet, a place for food lovers from around the world to exchange cooking experiences and encourage others to improve their skills; and numerous games to keep the kids busy, like Angry Birds and Monopoly.
If you just want to unwind with the family after a long week, make it a movie night! Rent or purchase a movie from the PlayBook movie library, and stream it on your TV using an HDMI cable.
Carry your PlayBook around in style with premium-grade leather cases. The BlackBerry Leather Sleeve offers exceptional protection and distinctive style for your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. And, with external access to the Micro-USB and media ports, you can listen to music or charge the battery while your PlayBook stays safe inside.
Another stylish option is the BlackBerry Leather Envelope. Its genuine leather finish, custom patterned microfiber lining, and magnetic closure leads to a fusion of functionality and style. It even comes in purple, offering another color option to choose from.
The latest BlackBerry 7 smartphones are a perfect companion for the PlayBook, and feature newly updated apps and features that help mothers get things done easier and faster. The updated BlackBerry Travel app helps make it easier than ever to plan, book, manage, and share family travel activities from your smartphone. The app will even notify you if a flight is cancelled or delayed. For social media savvy mothers, Facebook and Twitter apps are now BBM connected, allowing for status updates made on each respective site to post on their BBM profile. Through the newly updated BBM app, quickly share voice notes, messages, pictures and status updates, with the added benefit of knowing when the message was read. This is ideal for keeping the whole family in touch no matter the time or location. If you’re not sure what apps to purchase, let your mom decide! With the mobile gifting platform, BlackBerry users can instantly gift apps from one user to another through BBM.
