RIM Introduces “BlackBerry Mini Keyboard” For BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet

BlackBerry Smartphone maker Research In Motion (RIM) today introduced the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard, a new accessory for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

BlackBerry Mini Keyboard

The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard is ultra portable and comes complete with a stylish convertible case that doubles as a stand for the tablet.

In addition to a full QWERTY keyboard, it offers an integrated touchpad that allows users to navigate and control the BlackBerry PlayBook as easily as using the touch screen on the tablet itself. When the keyboard is active, the PlayBook tablet’s virtual keyboard remains hidden, freeing up 100% of the display for the task at hand.

Features :

Powerful Multi-touch Control – The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard comes equipped with a touchpad that supports BlackBerry PlayBook gestures. The touchpad also offers additional gestures similar to the standard mouse and touchpad controls on a laptop, including a single tap to simulate a mouse click, a two finger tap to right-click, and a two-finger up or down swipe to scroll vertically.

Ultimate Portability – The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard is ultra-portable and lightweight, measuring less than 6mm thick.

Powered and Ready When You Need It – The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard conveniently uses the micro-USB charger that comes with the BlackBerry PlayBook (one less charger to carry), and the keyboard battery lasts up to 30 days on a full charge.

Third Party App Support – The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard is a great productivity enhancer. It works with the new BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 Messages, Contacts and Calendar apps as well as Documents To Go, and provides an optimal user experience for third party apps such as Citrix Receiver, which allows users to remotely access their Windows desktop and apps from the tablet.

The BlackBerry Mini Keyboard is now available for pre-order internationally at shopblackberry.com for US$119.99 (Approx Rs.6000)

@chaitanya das Which company will be better at low price; LG or Samsung. Reliance, Tata and Mts are giving Samsung and Lg mobile at low prices.

Handsets supplied with CDMA operators are network locked – that will work only with a single CDMA operator SIM. Better to select an OMH (Open Market Handset) with “GEM” logo, all operator CDMA sim will work with OMH device.Comparing between LG & Samsung CDMA handsets, Samsung is the best. You can find more details from the site “omhworld”

4.Bsnl Cdma
Please give me your valuable suggestions regarding this matter.

Go for Samsung guru 559 CDMA handset. Has jumbo battery, excellent signal reception, OMH all CDMA sim will work, good voice clarity, quick response etc. Price is about 2000/- MTS is the best CDMA provider but before selecting, check the signal strength of MTS in your area.
