Video of BlackBerry PlayBook Calculator and Weather App

CTIA news this year has been dominated with the AT&T T-Mobile and RIM has announced a launch date, venue, and price for the PlayBook. Kevin seems to really be bored out of his mind but since there really is not much new to see but he did catch quick videos of the new BlackBerry PlayBook Calculator and Weather apps. The calendar app by AccuWeather is kind of dull in my opinion but not bad. On the other hand the calculator is slick with a built in tip calculator and scientific functions!

  1. Cool apps! When the Playbook finally does come out its going to give the IPad 2 nightmares. Now, please show a video of the Video Chat app.

  2. Finally! Being able to use the calculator while doing something else on the same screen :)

    • Hi ‘altaera,’

      Alex from RIM here. Glad you like the functionality of the calculator. I think you’ve hit on a broader theme we see as a key advantage of the PlayBook, too – with the QNX-powered BlackBerry Tablet OS, its 1GB of RAM and 1GHz-dual core processor, the PlayBook excels at multitasking. You’ll be able to use the calculator, listen to music, download a video or e-book, and have multiple browser windows open all at the same time. And no matter which applications you have open, they continue to run in the background, allowing you to toggle among them quickly and easily. True multitasking is what the PlayBook is all about.

      If you haven’t already done so, you can pre-order the BlackBerry PlayBook at Best Buy online or stop by a Best Buy store near you today.

  3. The Calc looks pretty nice.
    The Weather app reminds me a lot of Weatherbug and AccuWeather for ChromeOS on my cr48. But that’s not a bad thing.

  4. Lol. I don’t get too excited about calculators.

  5. I like the look of the calculator…it is almost like a real one you would have on your desk. Nice
