Default Re: Playbook Education

My contacts comes from either hotmail or gmail and when bridging with my phone i get them, same with calendar. The Playbook will merge the local calendar and the one it's gets from your email address like gmail or other.

On a personal note i don't use it since they are all on my BB9900 and with the Bridge I get them all so no need to have them at both places. IMHO.

I have a wifi printer at home and it is an HP so either I use the HP e-print software (which is not that good I admit) but no it wont do exactly what you want.

I think Blackberry's ideas are often misunderstood(some would say misleading). I think (starting to hurt lol) that the idea was to be Eco-friendly and not waste paper to "print" instead you: "Digitally print content from your PC directly to your BlackBerry PlayBook or BlackBerry 10 device"

Print To Go eliminates the need for physical printouts by wirelessly and securely sending digital printouts to your BlackBerry® PlayBookxxx8482; tablet or BlackBerry® 10 device. Access all your digital printouts in one convenient location and easily view and sort them however you want, wherever you want.
Clearly this concept was misunderstood by many, including me. Again IMHO!

No the bad stuff about the Playbook:

- The browser needs serious help, we need to be able to control it more like on a PC (wishful thinking), we need to be able to control the cache and maybe some plugin to get rid of the adds. It use to be able to open pdf document from the browser on version 1.0 now in version 2.0/2.1 this ability is gone, it will ask for acrobat, which is already on the playbook but no link to it.

- When enabling/disabling the wifi the playbook with hang for a few seconds, mine anyway.

- the buttons on the top with time, like the volume control practically don't work anymore, they are not broken but i must press harder to make them work. However if you use a pen, no problem.

Besides that works like a charm!
