BlackBerry PlayBook Experience

The purpose of these hands-on events is to show you the full capabilities of the PlayBook and show you everything it has to offer. In this case, it meant tables of PlayBooks and Bold 9900's that visitors could try out and use and become more familiar with. RIM employees are on hand to answer questions, demonstrate each device's features and make sure the atmosphere was exciting and pleasant. Plus you have to love the PlayBook wall they had in the corner for people to purchase a 32GB or 64GB tablet.

This is a great time to interact with other BlackBerry fans, newbies, and those holding the demos. This is a great way for RIM to get their message out there and expose more people to their platform. Nothing shows off what the PlayBook can do than actually holding it in your hands and taking it for a spin. People from all ages lined up to listen to music, play games, and drink some beverages all while being serenaded with music from movie composer Paul Cantelon and his wife Angela McCluskey and listening to authors like Brittany Geragotelis and Sophie Flack.

The experience is open to the general public and each day they are holding giveaways with prizes that include the BlackBerry PlayBook, BlackBerry Music Gateway, 1-year PressReader subscription, SOUL and Sennheiser headphones and more. So if you're near Manhattan and want to stop by then be sure to do so during 11am - 7pm to have some fun. Catch the other scheduled events before it ends on July 23rd.
