    The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet in action

    The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has been an exciting product to implement, and is beginning to be used in innovative ways. For example, check out how the Royal Bank of Scotland is leveraging the solution to access to global research and strategy information.

    Here are a few of our favorite BlackBerry PlayBook tablet features:

    1. Multitasking

    Running multiple applications and media, as well as switching seamlessly between them, has never been easier. Not only is the multitasking functionality present in the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, it is also intuitive to use.

    2. Adobe® Flash™

    I’ve waited a long time for a mobile device that fully supports Adobe Flash in the browser; there were always a few sites that I just couldn’t access on the go due to this often missing feature. (Okay, I admit that I’m an occasional fan of Adobe Flash games too!)

    3. HDMI Cable to TV

    This is where it gets even more functional and fun – not only can I hook up my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to a screen to present a slideshow (or to play Need for Speed™ Undercover), it’s in full high definition.

    4. BlackBerry® Bridge™

    The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet integrates with my email information right away when I hook up the BlackBerry Bridge application with my BlackBerry smartphone – it even integrates past messages!

    5. BlackBerry PlayBook tablet apps

    There’s nothing like filling up your new mobile device with applications from the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. It still amazes me to see full-screen BlackBerry platform applications running on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet on its high resolution. Apps will always be one of my favorite features, and it’s a feature that keeps getting better and better as more apps are constantly being released.

    Talk about recycling..

    Micheal Bay has recycled footage from The Island. Now I’m not dissing the Bay but its just an interesting factoid that he did this with some very cool special affects. at least he’s thinking green.

    Toy Story Unleashed

    A guy by the name of Luis Eduardo Vargas Montoya, put an entirely new spin on Toy Story’s, Buzz Lightyear and Woody. Giving them a each a more hardcore makeover.. Buzz reminds me more of a mech android than he actually being in a suit and Woody wouldn’t be amiss in Red Dead. Very cool figures.

    Datamancer.net has come up with this very cool and slightly weird Steampunk Laptop. Its very cool as a novelty and very cool to shock your friends.

    Here is a description of the laptop:

    “This may look like a Victorian music box, but inside this intricately hand-crafted wooden case lives a Hewlett-Packard ZT1000 laptop that runs both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux. It features an elaborate display of clockworks under glass, engraved brass accents, claw feet, an antiqued copper keyboard and mouse, leather wrist pads, and customized wireless network card. The machine turns on with an antique clock-winding key by way of a custom-built ratcheting switch made from old clock parts.”

    I think its pretty cool. What about you?
