Top-notch Features we Indians will love

Firstly, Its a BlackBerry! And with uncompromising web experience it will blow minds of those flash loving gamers or Facebook-ers on the go. BlackBerry PlayBook is an Ultra portable & weighs less than a pound i.e 400g. Several demo videos on air shows how it perfectly fits in a pocket unlike other 10″ tablets which needs a carrying bag. Tethering your cellular data via bluetooth to BlackBerry PlayBook is a massive feature to all we consumers. User doesn’t have to own a BlackBerry phone to do that.

Waiting for 3G/4G model of BlackBerry PlayBook?

My question is Why to own another SIM? BlackBerry PlayBook does its job with one 😉

A tablet is a device which stands between mobile phones & laptops. It’s a revolution that will decrease laptop sales as its more easy-carrying and performs(almost) everything you need on the go & BlackBerry PlayBook will sync your very own mobile SIM data & manages its performance.

As we leaked Airtel 3G plans earlier, It’s now been launched & will be done soon by Vodafone as well with same pricing(we assume). Costumers running on BlackBerry Plan Rs. 599/- won’t be able to tether with BlackBerry PlayBook; They must upgrade to Rs. 675/- plan which enables tethering of internet & creates a hotspot to other devices.You can check out more on Airtel 3G plans here.

  1. Airtel gives 3G for free with 599 and 899 plan, so as you said its not tethering but its pairing with bridge, so will the speeds be same? And if I tether my bb with laptop speed goes back to 2G, so will it be the same in this case if bb connected to playbook via bridge?

  2. That means I will not be charged for 3G usage as I get it free with my airtel bis and tethering is charegable. But then why are you people mentioning about tethering here since pairing does the all the job?

  3. Nice update on the changes! Latest & Greatest to sum it up.
    Wanted to know if there is a native Twitter client on the works for the PB? Current client has left lot to be desired or have to go for a paid app.
    Also, what is the latest on Amazon reading App for the PB?
