Distance from the the PlayBook Public Offering in the United States almost a year since, t the overall evaluation of mixed, because mostly from the BlackBerry Bridge, the built-in functionality.
BlackBerry Bridge function PlayBook read BlackBerry phone contacts, schedule, and the E-Mail, is quite convenient for pre-existing users of the BlackBerry phone; but at the same time, RIM has used this on the grounds, not for PlayBook OS preload any independent contacts, schedule, and E-Mail Apps, non-BlackBerry phone users can not play all of the features of PlayBook, it is disappointing. More user severely criticized PlayBook just a BlackBerry phone towing difficult for practical "Qunjiao earners" the Tablet.
Version 2.0 now l PlayBook not only have their own independent contact, calendar, E-Mail Apps, and content, a richer version of the BlackBerry Bridge function than before, showing that RIM's sincerity.
▲ former appears at the bottom of the BlackBerry Bridge using App paired with the phone is still available, but above the Messages, Contacts, Calender even if the BlackBerry phone is still in PlayBook be used independently
Contact information on the Contacts namely PlayBook App, but in addition to general contact information is displayed, and its ability to integrate quite outstanding, especially on the the PlayBook originally aimed at business users, but also very practical:
▲ add a new contact, In addition to their own individually entered, the fastest way is to own online account input PlayBook, time synchronization, the integration of your contact information, Hong Kong people most commonly used Facebook, Gmail and Twitter, can be used
In addition to the general information of a contact person, the right number of different page for users to open:
▲ For example, in the contact information he is under a particular company's employees, Contacts, you scoured the Internet for the latest trends in this company in the preparation of the business strategy, meeting materials are very useful
▲ want to know, do not open the Calender and the person's appointment information, and only need to open another tab in the Contacts you can see
▲ into Contacts paging, even record what you with the contact person party, go to the number of how many times
▲ In addition, you want to know you have any mutual friends with the contact person can be readily found in Contacts is quite convenient as the personnel on the business communication tool
Calender, not in earlier versions of OS 2.0 also heed public opinion to join in the PlayBook above.The same with Contacts, Calender on PlayBook 2.0 of the general Tablet there are some differences, but also to integrate the information in the Contacts, allowing users to access various Apps without spinning.
▲ Press a day in the right column will appear the day's agenda
▲ Press the "Peoples," of the event participants will be properly displays
▲ It is quite a surprise 2.0 Calender, in addition to the schedule every day to have a green dot prompt appointment on that day, the more busy, occupied the more the days of the time, showing the font, the greater, as and the people about the time when you do not have to press into the day can easily know the day is free
Messages simply PlayBook OS 2.0, independent of the E-Mail Apps, E-Mail reading interface with Android, WebOS, on very similar, are left list, right content set.
▲ PlayBook on the Messages on utilizing PlayBook itself also has a unique Gesture and multi-tasking features, can be pulled out from the top menu, and edit multiple letters new messages
▲ the Messages The reason is called "Messages" instead of "E-mail, because in addition to E-Mail to read and write, in this social networking site directly on the user's contact person sent a message, such as the above-mentioned Facebook, Twitter,
PlayBook OS web browser Browser, and naturally also be retained in the version 2.0, but there is a little to strengthen the function, that is the Reader Mode,:
▲ After a page loads in the upper left corner of the browser will appear as shown in the little book pattern, press the can into the Reader to the Mode
▲ Reader Mode, maximum functionality, page layout, do not need to, and prevent reading things such as advertising and so be ruled out, only to extract the essence of the text part for the user to read, time-sensitive business users can be considered as a practical function
BlackBerry Bridge, "bridge" role of deeper
Since the the PlayBook upgrade to OS 2.0 has its own independent Apps, "solo" function has been quite complete, that the BlackBerry Bridge feature is not completely worthless?
Think so are wrong, because the RIM OS 2.0 for the Bridge feature enhancement, compared to the past, such as "forcing" users to use a BlackBerry handset, now the Bridge is to attract users to use a BlackBerry handset. to curry favor with much more.
▲ In the old version of the BlackBerry Bridge, matching QR Code function remains the same, just one minute to complete the pairing
▲ pairing after the success of the BlackBerry Bridge, as a Tab in the past dedicated Apps App select the form of a File Icon
▲ while RIM has also stressed that although PlayBook already has his own independent App, but the BlackBerry Bridge feature used in the Messages, Contacts, Calender, are taken directly from the mobile phone, the information content and PlayBook will not affect each other ( Of course, except with account)
The PlayBook the OS 2.0 BlackBerry Bridge, new features, the first bound to the number to the BlackBerry phone into the PlayBook remote control Remote Control function:
▲ After the pairing is successful, open the phone one end of the BlackBerry Bridge App, you can open the Remote Control function
▲ turn this feature on the BlackBerry mobile phone Touch Screen can be used as wireless TrackPad (non Touch Screen models can optical the TrackPad control) on the keyboard at the same time, the signature QWERTY keyboard of the BlackBerry mobile phone text input can also be put on the PlayBook during video output for presentation, demonstration is especially useful
In addition to the simulcast When the remote control, the photo shoot on the phone has a larger screen, and even being carried out HDMI output PlayBook:
▲ viewed on a BlackBerry phone have been paired and PlayBook pictures, more visible option a the "Open on PlayBook
Press, the photo will appear in the immediate PlayBook above, the whole process does not require additional configuration
Summary: PlayBook finally "grow up"
This OS upgrade, as the author above mentioned, let the BlackBerry the PlayBook laid down in the shadow of the "Qunjiao, independent practicality significant increase, so this one launched more than a year, the price has come down to three thousand below the Tablet cost greatly increased.
If you are a BlackBerry phone users, I believe that the PlayBook absolutely can post the upgrade as a worthy start working partners; BlackBerry phone, PlayBook also can be used as a good function, and the high mobility of Tablet view, become a piles outside the Android Tablet entertainment options.
