Default Downloading Applications

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

I'm thinking about getting one. Is there no native Outlook-style email/calendar/contacts system or even one that can sync with my Bold?

Also, can I use Skype and vid chat on it?

Thanks very much!

There is tether and Bridge connection

Tether does not control your smart phone and can cost more on a data plan depending on carrier. its just an internet connection.

Brigde is like a PC remote control program for your BB Smartphone and you can surf the web without charges. Also can access data on media card as well.

There will soon be many apps released for it. RIM has kept the apps a seekrit for now.

Thanks very much!
There's an app called "Early Bird" that is an email client for PlayBook.
Early Bird by Pepper.pk - Email for your BlackBerry PlayBook! | CrackBerry.com

I'd simply wait for the RIM update when it comes.

I had that problem with the first app I installed. iSpeech or something. Old habits die hard. I turned it off and on again. Went to App world and Bob's yer Uncle. Don't feel too too bad, there arn't many apps yet anyways.

For a good 10 minutes it kept telling me that I could not connect to app world because I wasn't connected to a wireless network(I was)

Had a slight glitch with an update to the game NFS Undercover. Had to reinstall 4 times...I expect a few glitches for a week or two.....
