Zinio Shows Off PlayBook Magazine App on Video – Coming Soon?

Zinio PlayBook 

Zinio and RIM keep on teasing me with their magazine reader app for the BlackBerry PlayBook. We first saw signs of their Adobe AIR powered magazine app coming to the PlayBook in March of last year then a preview video in June and once again this month in their CES announcement for the PlayBook 2.0 OS. Now we have clear video of the Zinio app running on the PlayBook thanks to Zinio and RIM at CES.

RIM posted up a video of them sitting down with Zinio’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jeanniey, during CES. They don’t really confirm when the app is coming but they do tell you to sign up to register your interest at along with readers getting a $25 credit towards Zinio content when the app is available!

Kudos to PDM for the tip!

  1. It will be a popular app though and the Playbook does need all the premium apps out there for the general consumer so that will be a plus.

  2. Zinio is a key app. Add in the video store and media is all covered for Playbook finally.

    Would love to see Skype come.

  3. Wow!

    This is very nice news! I never used Zinio on a tablet before, just on the browser, so I wonder how well the content will fit into the Playbook screen. I hope it’s optimized for it although I find it hard to believe. Maybe, with the release of Adobe CS6 that will introduce the “liquid layout” feature, Publishers will switch to the new tool and start creating adaptative content. That would be awesome!
