What Would You Think of a BlackBerry Tablet?



I’ve been watching the coverage of the iPad launch and I haven’t seen anything more than a large iPod Touch. It’s sort of cool to be able to use iPod Touch apps on a larger screen, and it will surely make the movie watching experience better, but there was far too much hype over this device.

While Mike Lazaridis doesn’t seem too elated about the idea of a tablet, and would probably not let RIM go down that path, it still could happen. With enough pressure from marketing, and if Apple make a fortune on the tablet, the financial incentive could be enough. I think the BlackBerry OS would be more conducive to a tablet because it comes with push notifications and multitasking, but there are a few things that need to happen at RIM first, before a tablet could really be successful.

TaskMailer for BlackBerry Makes Calendar Events from Emails


TaskMailer is a new app from S4BB that allows you to send tasks by email with an ICAL or VCAL task file attachment to any contact in your address book. Since version 2.0 it is now also possible to import such tasks into your BlackBerry task database right out of your BlackBerry Messages. While a $9.99 price tag is a little rich for my liking, the app has been discounted to $4.99 until February 19th which is a little more in my range.
