I love when RIM throws events in my hometown. Their latest is the BlackBerry PlayBook Experience Center in New York City. The new Experience Center opens its doors tomorrow and will run for 2 weeks. According to RIM it is designed to “raise awareness about the BlackBerry PlayBook by offering New Yorkers a hands-on experience.” The experience center will be at 75 9th avenue on the corner of 15th street and 10th avenue in Chelsea Market.
RIM has a whole schedule of events with themed attractions, special guests, giveaways, app showcase, and more. They also have a special free accessories offer if you buy a PlayBook at the center. I am hoping RIM has a new PlayBook OS or some new features to show off at the event but we have not heard any word of that. On top of the Experience Center in Chelsea Market RIM will also be doing BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Demos at:
- July 10-20 – Grand Central Terminal Main Entrance
- July 10 – Times Square Pedestrian Walkway
- July 11-14 – Bryant Park
- July 15-18 – Union Square
- July 19-20 – World Financial Center
- July 21-23 – Columbus Circle
