RIM Announces Video Chat And Facebook Apps For Playbook

An app that probably should have appeared on the Playbook at launch, video chat, is coming to tablet owners tomorrow morning in an OTA update. In addition to front and back camera support, the chat app allows you to make VOIP and video calls as well as connectivity based on the user’s BBID. The app features “powerful in-call functions” like – and I’m not making this up – “mute/unmute.”

The company also announced the availability of Facebook for Playbook including Facebook Chat for chatting with your Facebook friends and you can add friends.
