The home sceen dock on the BlackBerry Playbook 2.0 software is a very welcome addition. In previous versions were we stuck with no dock for favorite or most used apps and had to deal with the multiple views/panes. While some users didn't mind, I for one have never been a fan of the panes on either my PlayBook or my phone, so I'm happy to see them gone. With the new home screen dock you can add or move icons to your liking, and unlike the original PlayBook software, you can have less than the standard six icons in a row. Check out the video above for a quick look at using the home screen dock on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Be sure to check out our full BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 walkthrough for all that's new.
