RIM Shows Off BlackBerry PlayBook Native Email and PIM Apps But Nobody Cares

By Sam Gibbs on at

This one fits firmly into the too little, too late category. RIM's finally showing off its BlackBerry PlayBook apps for email, contacts and calendar. Shame no one's bought the PlayBook, and neither will they now.

The BlackBerry fanatics at BlackBerry Cool describe the email client as "simply awesome", "feeling like the smartphone experience". Apparently it'll do email, and I'll bet that if you're a BlackBerry user, you'll feel right at home. The contacts and calendar app also look equally functional, but considering none of them will launch till February 17th, 2012 -- does anyone care? [BlackBerry Cool via N4BB]
