Have you been following the launch of Blackberry®’s new multi-tasking, app-loving, web-rocking, ultra-portable tablet?
Well, if you’re like most folks, you probably want to know what it can do and how it stacks up to the competition. Look no further – the BlackBerry® Mobile Tour Truck will be at FOSE 2011 at the Washington Convention Center in DC July 19-21.
Hop on board the truck to experience everything this professional-grade tablet has to offer – from the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ Theater to demo stations and the BlackBerry® Bridge™ – it’s all on the truck at FOSE! Plus, stop by the BlackBerry® Power-Up Lounge to take a break, recharge yourself and your mobile device and find out how you could take home a brand new BlackBerry® PlayBook™!
How Does the PlayBook Stack Up?
The Playbook’s interface and its capability in terms of memory, screen size and available programs could definitely fill a niche in the government according to Greg Crowe, technology analyst for Government Computer News magazine.
