I love tablets. I also love smartphones, you only have to take a look around this blog to see that. I love what each type of device brings to the table, but I am ready for the next step. I want my tablet and smartphone to work together to make each of them better. I am ready for each device to play off the strengths of the other to make a more complete package.
The BlackBerry PlayBook has me thinking about this synergy, as RIM has included a very basic cooperation between its new tablet and some BlackBerry phones. I don’t like the reason behind RIM’s vision of synergy, as the aptly named BlackBerry Bridge solution is intended to get around the lack of email, contacts and calendar apps on the PlayBook. It uses the BlackBerry Bridge to allow PlayBook owners to use those functions residing on the phone. It is a nice concept, but it doesn’t go far enough in my book.
