The BlackBerry PlayBook has just had a significant software update, which adds some great new features, including social network integration, remote typing and Android apps. Check them out in the video below.


Are these PlayBook updates enough to make you consider purchasing the BlacKBerry PlayBook?  Do you already have a PlayBook - what do you think of the new features?  Let us know in the comments below!

Hi  vorb,


It's quite tricky to say, they are all merged in with the BlackBerry apps and don't have their own section.
Looking online I've seen reports of around 800, but it's fair to say these are of varying quality and won't all work

While e-Reader has a better list here, of well over 200, which it has verified.


Hope that helps a bit :smileyhappy:

It works as a normal tablet for surfing the web, watching videos and internet based things. You can sync it to a Blackberry phone.


To be honest i haven't installed many Android apps as the standard Blackberry installed software has suited my needs.


I think at the moment the Playbook will run the majority of Android apps out there upto 2.3 (don't quote me).

Hopefully only the good apps as most are useless


I don't own a Blackberry phone i use a Samsung Galaxy s2 as my main gadget out and about. I wanted a tablet for home use for watching videos like iplayer, 4od etc and the screen is more than enough.
