Today at the BlackBerry Innovation Forum we got a look at the updated Video Chat app for the PlayBook that will come with OS 2. The video chat UI has been updated and the major change is being able to enter a BlackBerry PIN rather than just the BlackBerry ID. More after the jump.
There was no demo given of the new BlackBerry PlayBook Video Chat app so we can’t confirm any of the features. What we can speculate about is that because the Video Chat app now leverages the PlayBook’s PIN, we can assume that the experience of adding people to Video Chat will be much more connected. It doesn’t take much imagination to think RIM will allow you to tap a PlayBook recognized PIN and simply select “Add to Video Chat”. Again, we can’t confirm this but it seems reasonable.
