unify certain PlayBook functions with a BlackBerry handset so that users could have their contact list on both. While RIM works toward a unified list (which iOS and Android users already enjoy), the tablet for now, will still have a separate and distinct PIN code. Meanwhile, PlayBook owners could rejoice in the knowledge that finally the tablet would have a contact list, email, BBM, and calendar functions.
Electronista speculates that the update could show itself at BlackBerry DevCon which starts October 18th. While the BlackBerry Bridge has helped some with both a BlackBerry phone and the PlayBook cover some of the missing functions of the tablet, it is just another black eye for RIM as features that iOS and Android users take for granted become a hassle to obtain for those using devices branded with the BlackBerry name.
