It makes sense that eventually the Playbook will be PIN-enabled, meaning it will have native BBM and BES-like functionality. The Blackberry via bluetooth pairing system is only a stop-gap in my mind...it's not an ideal or long-term solution. Leveraging the BES is what RIM will do...but how?
What do you guys think? How will RIM allow a one-to-many mapping of users to blackberries AND playbooks from the BES?
You figure they're envisioning a customer having both a Torch and a Playbook, both of which will be connected the the BES to allow for IT policies, control, push mail, etc.
It gets tricky when you factor BBM...how will one personal have a single BBM 'username', currently their PIN, but be able to reach his/her buddies from both their playbook and the blackberry? I'd love to hear some ideas from the crowd on how you think RIM will pull this off!
