These are all standard accessories, with the exception of something like the Bluetooth keyboard. Way back in the day, we used to see a lot of these for the BlackBerry but they sort of fizzled in popularity. The BlackBerry keyboard itself has become more ergonomic over the years, and people are probably satisfied without the need for a keyboard. The PlayBook will only have a virtual keyboard, and if you’re going to be churning out emails, this seems like a great accessory to have.
Are you going to pick up any of the above?
