BlackBerry PlayBook - A quick look at the simulator
on 25 Oct 2010 03:15 am EDT
We've been messing around with the BlackBerry PlayBook simulator since the download links went live. Curiosity got the best of us, probably like most of you all that downloaded it and ran it. A few things to note about the release though for those who may be thinking about installing it but, have yet to do so. It's pretty slim on information. Aside from getting a look at the media player, the keyboad and some of the general layout of the device, not much else is shown off with the simulator.
It's still cool to play with mind you but, overall nothing is really revealed within the simulator unless you were really looking to get your hands on those BlackBerry PlayBook wallpapers. No apps are preloaded, no web browser is installed. Quite simply put, it's just the basics. Maybe even less. All that said, we should point out that none among us are BlackBerry developers. We may be missing some stuff that only a developer may see and appreciate but either way it's still cool to finally see some movement here. Click on through after the break for some more screen shots of the UI.
