In case you have not heard of the Pacemaker before here is a brief explanation. The Pacemaker is/was a very popular portable DJ mixing accessory that let you mix digital music anywhere you are. Now Engadget got word via Pacemakers Facebook page and a press conference at MWC with RIM that Pacemaker is porting their technology to the PlayBook. Here is their announcement from their Facebook page:
Today we proudly announced a partnership with RIM / BlackBerry at a press conference at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
As a result, we’re porting the technology of Pacemaker® Device onto the BlackBerry PlayBook.
After investigating a wide range of mobile platforms to make a digital transition we selected the PlayBook due to its highly responsive user interface. DJ’s requires very low latency and the PlayBook delivers very well on that aspect.
For those who don’t own a BlackBerry PlayBook please stay tuned as we have future plans for other platforms as well.
Btw, our next stop will be the South By South West festival in Austin Texas, so if you’re there, let us know 🙂
Very exciting stuff. Now this is one app I cannot wait to play with!
