TIL a notification will pop up on the PlayBook when the bridged BlackBerry receives a call. This is news to me and I read a bunch of zero-day Playbook Reviews. CrackBerry has all the details but the screen dims and a little box pops up that even allows users to kill the phone’s ringer. RIM stated from the start that the PlayBook is a companion device and features like this could turn into a legitimate reason for the BlackBerry addicted to opt for the PlayBook over other tablets.
