On our live CrackBerry Podcast yesterday I showed off my BlackBerry PlayBook for a few moments that's up and running with native email and PIM (and native Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn too). The lighting from the displays kinda washed things out in video, and some of you were bugging me on twitter today to post some pics, so I figured as we head into the weekend here are a few more follow-up photos to get all you PlayBook owners out there drooling for the release of PlayBook OS 2.0 in February.
The big difference between the public beta version of PlayBook OS 2.0 and this version is the extra option on the settings menu for Accounts, which allows you to add not only email accounts, but also social accounts for native Facebook, Twitter and even LinkedIn. RIM gave a sneak peek of this recently at the BlackBerry Innovation forum, but I gotta say, having it in hand is way better. As soon as you add an email account and that red LED starts blinking, it turns the PlayBook into a CrackBook. More photos after the break. Enjoy the tease! :)
