PlayBook Project Manager Ryan Bidan Video Interview

Want to meet the project manager behind the BlackBerry PlayBook at RIM? Doug over at Inside BlackBerry managed to get 5 minutes with Ryan Bidan, the PlayBook project manager, to ask him about how the PlayBook’s bridge works with the BlackBerry and the need for a BlackBerry for PlayBook users. Doug did not ask if it will be possible to get email on the PlayBook without a BlackBerry since I have not managed to get anybody at RIM to ask that question yet. Once again nothing ground breaking in the video but nice to meet one of the main players behind the device. Check out the video interview below:

  1. I really like the Blackberry bridge. I couldn’t care less if only Blackberry users are the only ones to purchase the PlayBook. I think it will be a hit with BlackBerry users.

  2. Bb+pb for email pls! Or else we will need wifi to check mail 🙁

  3. He did ask if you could get email without a blackberry didn’t he?

  4. One question I’m curious about that no one seems to have provided feedback on. Can you browse the Web on Playbook via the tethered BlackBerry connection (when no wi-fi connection is available). And if you can, how is the performance given the extra step of communicating over Bluetooth?

    • I have wondered this same thing!

      I am glad to hear that eventually we will be able to have email etc directly on the PlayBook. I wonder if we will have ti buy a new one to do so though…
