    Video Demo: BlackBerry Messenger for PlayBook!



    [Mobile? Click Here for Video]

    If you have been wondering how BlackBerry Messenger will be on the PlayBook, we have a small demo showing us that by syncing your device to the PlayBook via the BlackBerry bridge, you will be able to chat on your tablet. Will PlayBook users have to have a BlackBerry in order to use BBM? Seems like for now, yes. I imagine that when BlackBerry ID becomes the norm, then having to bridge with a BlackBerry in order to use BBM on the PlayBook may be a thing of the past. Watch the video and give us your thoughts.

    This, and only this, is a thing I don't really like about the playbook.
    Having to connect your BB to have access to Internet... I haven't done that since I had an Ipaq 38** and my Nokia 6310i
    I hope they'll bring but this one, or a newer, were you don't have to link it to a BB.
    Say, like the iPad?
    Noway am I cheating on RIM with fruit, but the "connecting your phone to go on the web" is a bit outdated isn't it?

    With BlackBerryID a device won't be needed for the PIN, so no bridge.

    I thought it didn't have a 3G connection?
    Not so much for PIN, but anytime you want to go online when there is no wifi...
