Print To Go

Print To Go eliminates the hassle of mountains of paper files by wirelessly printing from your laptop or PC directly to your BlackBerry PlayBook. You can view, sort, and manage digital files like documents, memos, or lists as though they were physical sheets of paper.


Highly Secure and Reliable

The BlackBerry PlayBook offers trusted BlackBerry security that’s designed to keep personal and work data safe and protected. Advanced technology from QNX also makes the operating system ultra-reliable, so you can feel confident that your BlackBerry PlayBook is always ready to work.


BlackBerry App World

Your BlackBerry PlayBook has all your favorite apps and thousands more. Games like Angry Birds and Cut The Rope, magazines like Time and Sports Illustrated, social networking sites like Facebook, and even your favorite books from Kobo - the apps you want are here for you to discover in the BlackBerry AppWorld™ storefront.


BlackBerry Video Store**

Thousands of movies and TV shows are now available on demand to rent or buy. Watch new releases or download old favorites when you’re on the go with the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet’s vivid display.

An outstanding web experience

BlackBerry PlayBook puts the power of the real internet at your fingertips with a blazing fast Webkit engine supporting HTML5 and Adobe® Flash®.

BlackBerry Bridge Technology

Get more out of your BlackBerry devices by allowing them to work together. New BlackBerry® Bridge™ features let your BlackBerry smartphone act as a keyboard and mouse for your BlackBerry PlayBook giving you wireless remote control of your tablet.


Real Multitasking

Not all multitasking is created equal. Multitasking on BlackBerry PlayBook allows you to run apps simultaneously, rather than just switch between them. So you can be downloading music while you read a book or video chatting while you review a presentation. Why settle for anything less?


Performance Powerhouse

The BlackBerry PlayBook is intuitive and easy to use with simple gestures that make buttons a thing of a past. Beneath its polished surface BlackBerry PlayBook packs a blazing fast dual core processor, two HD 1080p video cameras, and 1GB of RAM for a high performance experience.
