BlackBerry PlayBook Applications Hands On – Documents to Go and More!


During our hands on demo with the BlackBerry PlayBook I had a chance to go through the different apps that are already functioning. I was impressed with the work they have done with Documents to Go to get a nice word processor along with slideshows, spreadsheets, and even a PDF viewer built in. While the current BlackBerry version of Documents to Go is pretty good for viewing documents it is really annoying to edit and create anything on such a small screen.

That is exactly where I think the PlayBook fits in. We also got a chance to try out a few other apps and even play one game on the device. The apps range from the impressive to the simplistic flash games you are used to playing online. I even took a video of me playing a side scrolling shooting game you can catch below. Even small games like the ninja tic tac toe were entertaining. Check out the walkthrough below:

  1. About a Berryreview app yea? 😛

  2. Were you able to edit a spreadsheet at all? I am curious to how easy/not easy it is. A lot of time I will setup a spreadsheet in Excel then use my BB to just add values… (check registry type things)

  3. 1. Any navigation- or map-related app because the PlayBook is almost GPS size

    2. Memory4Kidz (you knew this was coming) 😉

  4. Not bad, but even at 7″ doesn’t seem to be conducive to working on spreadsheets or word documents unless you’re really desperate to finish something.

  5. Does it come bundled with the PDF reader, or is that premium only like the BBs?
