Following the announcement of the 7digital Music Store heading to the BlackBerry PlayBook, the Inside BlackBerry Blog has posted up a great video showing off the app. BlackBerry PlayBook Product Manager Ryan Biden takes us on a quick tour of the app on the PlayBook. Much like its handheld counterpart, the 7digital Music Store lets you check out tons of artists and albums and you can easily purchase songs with one click. Any items that have been purchased can instantly be played via the media player on the PlayBook. All of your purchased items are stored in the cloud so you can go back and forth between the PlayBook and your smartphone without a hitch.
We also get a look at the BlackBerry Podcasts app which will be installed on the PlayBook at launch. It looks amazing in its current state and should be fun to play around with. You can search and subscribe to podcats, and when the app is launched it will automatically download the latest episodes. The app handles video, HD video and audio podcasts. Also noted is that you'll be able to use BlackBerry Desktop Manager (as expected) to transfer media to the PlayBook.
Definitely some great info in the three-minute video so sit back and check it out!
