At BlackBerry DevCon Europe we were given a quick demo of PlayBook OS 2 and some of the features that let you interact with the PlayBook from your smartphone. The idea is really great as many people will have their PlayBook hooked up to their TV, and this will allow them to open files, browse the web and more from the comfort of their couch. At DevCon, the head of Portfolio Software, EMEA, Vivek Bhardwaj, had an issue with the demo and wasn’t able to show us how you can take a photo on your smartphone and show it on the PlayBook. Since then, RIM has posted the video on their YouTube channel.
Vivek Bhardwaj – Head of Portfolio Software, EMEA gives a short demonstration on how to share a photo from your BlackBerry smartphone to a BlackBerry PlayBook.
Was this demo really of interest to anyone though? What is the use case for taking a photo on your smartphone and showing it on your PlayBook? It seems like such an odd thing to demo. If you want to show how the smartphone interacts with the PlayBook, start a movie on the PlayBook from your smartphone. It’s an obvious use case that wouldn’t have failed during the crucial demo period.
