Facebook & Video Chat App for PlayBook Coming in Mayby Stan Schroeder, mashable.com
May 2nd 2011
A native Facebook app and a video chat app for BlackBerry PlayBook are coming in May, RIM has announced.
The Facebook app will offer all the standard Facebook bells and whistles, including viewing and adding friends, managing friend requests, browsing through profiles and interacting with wall posts and photos. Uploading and managing videos and photos should be easy, and if you connect the PlayBook to an HDTV you’ll be able to see them in full 1080p glory. Finally, news feed management and interaction as well as chat will also be included.
Video chat will work on Wi-Fi connected PlayBooks, offering one-click video and voice calls, incoming call notifications, as well as in-app friends list and call log. The app will enable users to switch cameras from front to rear (if you want to show someone what you’re seeing), preview their video image before placing the call, as well as turn audio and video on and off as needed.
Both apps will be showcased this week at the BlackBerry World 2011 conference in Orlando, Florida.
