PlayBook OS 2.0 Browser Adds “Reader View” for Easy Reading

 IMG_00000001 IMG_00000003

While the PlayBook does a sweet job of browsing the web there are some sites that are cluttered on the device or meant for huge 22 inch monitors. RIM seems to be joining the crowd with their own take on a Reader View in the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 Beta. This beta has a new feature once a page loads in the browser that lets you extract the main text and images from the page for easy viewing. It works better in portrait but hopefully RIM will fix it to take the whole screen in landscape mode.

All you need to do to enable the view is hit the new book like icon in BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 when the page loads.

    Now they need to fix the broken things like 3D and HD flash video playback.

  4. This is col and all but what I want to know is can you finally manage your bookmarks?

  5. Good oh!!! I like!

  6. This is totally convenient. I zoom in in certain sites so the article column fits nicely in the PlayBook screen. It’s really comfortable to read.
