The BlackBerry PlayBook is the first tablet device from RIM, the manufacturer of the iconic BlackBerry line. The PlayBook has a seven-inch screen, tight compatibility with BlackBerry devices, and an elegant operating system that lets the tablet be used the same way in any orientation. Interestingly, the BlackBerry PlayBook can be charged with an ordinary cell phone charger (using the PlayBook's microUSB port), which makes one fewer thing you need to pack on a business trip.

When a company changes to a new version of an operating system, what does this mean to the user? In the case of the new BlackBerry 6 operating system, it combines the features that BlackBerry users have come to love about their phones with new tools to reach out across the Internet and share your life.
CellGuru.com reportedly has leaked of images of a new BlackBerry that will have both a traditional QWERTY keyboard and a touch-screen interface. Rumors have been floating for a while the such a phone was in the works. Many have thought it would be a Storm3, but these images appear to tell a different story.
Are you tired of giving your wireless carrier free advertising real estate on your BlackBerry's home screen in the form of a background wallpaper? It's easy to change your home screen background image from a bland carrier logo to any image you want -- and chances are there's a fair selection of pictures to choose from already loaded onto your BlackBerry.
Depending on what BlackBerry OS your phone has, there are a number of ways to change the wallpaper. Here's a quick and easy one:
Resetting your BlackBerry to restore factory settings (referred to as a "handset wipe") is just a few short menu clicks away. Resetting your BlackBerry will delete all data on the device, and the process cannot be reversed -- so make sure you've backed up any data you don't want to lose before continuing.
If you have a corporate BlackBerry, or if you have a personal BlackBerry and wish to setup an additional email account, adding an email account to your device is an easy process. New email accounts can be added directly from your BlackBerry, or setup using the BlackBerry Internet Service website for your service provider.
Are you easily annoyed by the shutter sound on your BlackBerry or constantly frustrated that your attempts to take stealthy pictures are constantly foiled by that click sound? Well, by design, you cannot turn off the shutter sound by just changing an option or setting. There are, however, a few known tricks to disable or inhibit the click sound.
You aren't able to see it while you're composing a new message, but you know it's there. It's that pesky BlackBerry auto signature that appends itself to all your outgoing emails. While it may have its benefits (letting recipients know the message was sent from your BlackBerry so that they will perhaps be slightly more forgiving of your many typos), you may prefer something slightly more personalized. Luckily, changing the signature on your BlackBerry is a fairly quick and easy process.
Corporate BlackBerry users whose organization's employ BlackBerry Enterprise Server can manage their auto signature from BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
Do you think that the candid picture you just snapped with your BlackBerry may be worthy of a Pulitzer? Well, first things first. You have to download that picture to your computer, right? Whether you're using a Mac or PC, transferring photos from (or to) your BlackBerry is a quick and easy process. Also, don't forget that if you are only transferring one or two pictures, it may be easiest to just email the picture(s) to yourself.
