Playbook Email Client and API

Hi guys,

 

Does anyone know if there is info on the Blackberry Playbook Email Client? I'm building an application from which I'd like to user to share content via email with his/her friends. Please let me know if anyone has anythinng on this.. even the smallest details might be of help.

 

Thanks,

There is no info on how to send e-mails from applications at this moment.

 

As for the device itself, at launch the e-mail client will require the PlayBook to be bridged to an actual BlackBerry to function.

It will be possible when 3G model hit the market. I bet that there will be update with standalone mail client for WiFi only devices.

Re: Playbook Email Client and API

As a workaround, maybe you could pass data to a web service (written in PHP, for example) and have the service send the mail.
