The digital age is well and truly here, with the majority of the UK population either owning or having regular access to an internet enabled mobile device on a daily basis. Multi tasking smart phones have revolutionised how individuals and businesses manage their lives, with the ability to browse the web, read and edit documents as well as providing constant communications and as a result the tablet was developed by savvy technology experts who saw a huge gap in the market.

Although tablets themselves have been around in various forms since the nineties, it was the launch of Apple's iPad which put tablet computers firmly on the consumer map, and demand for these gadgets has grown exponentially ever since with many rival companies following suit in creating their own version of the popular tablet.

Consolidation of Technology
The popular BlackBerry is widely regarded as the business owners go to mobile device, and so the company have wisely invested a great deal of time and money in the development of their latest offering to the tablet market; the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. Following the success of its predecessor tablet, Blackberry have added several functions to enhance the user experience of the PlayBook 2.0. For business owners, one of the most useful additions to the PlayBook 2.0 is the ability to consolidate multiple email accounts into one inbox, to include messages from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn so that you will never miss a vital message again.

Diary Reminders to Keep you On Task
The PlayBook also features intuitive calendars and contact apps which will gather information from your social media accounts and import it directly into one calendar, as well as updating your current contacts with additional information from sites such as Facebook. The integration of your personal and business social networks with your calendar enables you to effortlessly keep all your contact and calendar information bang up to date.

Connection Capabilities
Of course, the PlayBook is not designed to replace your BlackBerry, but rather enhance its functionality and the updated BlackBerry Bridge app ensures that your devices are easier and quicker to connect than ever before. The app also features an ingenious remote control option that allows a BlackBerry smart phone to be linked and used as a wireless keyboard and mouse for a BlackBerry PlayBook. The improved mobile productivity features include the ability to edit documents faster with the auto correction and predicted text functionality and you can even print your documents anywhere in the world with the Print To Go app. Read an in depth review of the Playbook here.
