RIM’s PlayBook first to be certified by US Government

I picked this one up via Mobileburn — some organisations simply cannot afford to dance around with the iPad given the myriad of very real security concerns with it. That’s why there will always be some demand for a super-secure tablet such as the PlayBook: The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification means that […]

PlayBook advertising: “Yeah. You should have waited.”

I burst out laughing when I saw this poster at Manchester Piccadilly Station last night. There’s a load of them spread out across the concourse.

Apart from the various BlackBerry and mobile events I’ve attended recently, this is the first time I’ve seen a civilian actually using a PlayBook. I spotted it across the gate — the chap was playing […]

BlackBerry PlayBook HDMI-to-TV Demo

Here’s a quick demonstration of the BlackBerry PlayBook’s impressive 60-frames-a-second 1080p HDMI capabilities filmed in my hotel room at BlackBerry World in Orlando last week.
