blackberry playbook

hello guyz

 

i'm a newbie here in t he community, i just want to ask about my new BB playbook software support.

does the playbook use the same Desktop software as the mobile device? as well as the firmware?

if i may add is there any limitations with regards to software according to different regions? i'm currently living here in the middle east (saudi arabia).

 

any information would be greatly appreciated.

PlayBook can use deskop manager to backup and restore it.

Playbook uses a different OS, QNX and not java based like the phone do.

limitations might be app world, check here for supported countries

But, you do use the same BlackBerry Desktop Software for both your handheld and the Playbook.

For the Playbook, you'll need to make sure your Desktop Software is the latest updated version.
