Wal-Mart Has the 16 GB PlayBook In Stores

Posted: 09 Jun 2011 07:22 PM PDT

playbook_boxToday while at my local Wal-Mart I had some time to kill so like any tech loving person I went over to the electronics department. A friend who I had showed my PlayBook to a few weeks earlier told me to go look at what they had received a few days back. It turns out they had a shipment of the 16 GB BlackBerry PlayBook.  We had heard that they would carry the PlayBook but we weren't sure when they would start selling in stores. They have been selling them since launch date through their website. It is not surprising that they are going to sell the device in-stores since they already have all the e-book readers, the Xoom, as well as the iPad. The only device that the store had was the 16 GB but they didn't know if they would get the 32 or 64 GB. They had not placed it on display yet but I asked them to ring one up to check on the price and it is not lower in price than any other place, it will sell for $499. Now if you do have a Wal-Mart discount then you could probably save some money that way. Let us know if your local Wal-Mart will be selling it as well.

SugarSync For BlackBerry 2.0 Update Has an Improved UI and New Features

Posted: 09 Jun 2011 09:00 AM PDT

Tabs_BlackBerrySugarSync makes life easier when you have more than one computer, and mobile devices. Their service is super easy to use and if you want to try it out they give you 5GB free of online storage/Syncing across multiple devices.  Their BlackBerry app works great and has more features than the competition. It had been a while since their last update but this new update adds a few features. We mentioned the app a few days back but were not sure what new features were added. Robb reached out to us and let us know they posted the changes on their blog. Sugarsync suppors mutliple mobile devices also if you own different platforms including android and iOS.

Their new update has completely redesigned the UI, and it looks really cool.

Some of the new features include:

  • Faster Performance & Reliability -We doubled-down in making the app snappier and more stable than ever.
  • Intuitive Interface For Faster Access – The first thing you'll notice when you open the app is a much sleeker interface, from the log in page all the way to Settings. Making it fast wasn't good enough; we also wanted to make it beautiful.As part of the new interface, you'll also notice tabs at the top of each page. We've split the functionality of the app across multiple tabs. The Files tab has a new layout and makes it easier to browse your computers and folders. The Photos tab shows your recent mobile photos as well as the most recently added photo albums on the main page so you can quickly find photos
  • Sharing Simplified – SugarSync now uses your native email app for file and folder sharing, enabling you to select contacts in your address book for sharing.
  • you can now copy a public link for any file and paste it into any application such as Facebook or Twitter. Or, bypass those clunky email attachements by using SugarSync to post the link to any file directly into your email. In all cases, the recipient just needs to click the link to instantly download the file.

    To copy a link, just select the file you want to share, bring up the context menu and select Copy Link. This copies the link to your clipboard and you can paste it anywhere you like.

  • Added help button

If you already have a SugarSync account you can download their latest update from app world at this link, if not headover to sugarsync.com to get yourself an account.

The application is now available through app world at this LINK

Full press release and app description below:

Today RIM is announcing the BlackBerry News 1.0 app for BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet.
BlackBerry News allows a user to consolidate and access all of their subscription-based (RSS) content feeds within one app on the BlackBerry PlayBook. New feeds can be easily added by browsing the content library, or searching for specific keywords or URLs.
The app also comes with pre-populated feeds from top news sites providing instant access to popular content from multiple providers on a variety of topics. Categories include: Arts & Entertainment, Business, Health & Lifestyle, News Headlines, Science & the Environment, Technology, and Travel. 
The BlackBerry News app for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet has been optimized for the tablet screen, and leverages the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet's gesture-based navigation including:

  • Touching the "News Library" button feeds to easily find and add new feeds
  • Using the BlackBerry PlayBook bezel drop-down gesture from the "My News" home screen pulls up the options menu to update content, or edit and delete any subscriptions
  • Selecting a subscription provides an abbreviated summary view of articles within that  news feed, allowing for quick scanning of content
  • Swiping left on the tablet screen turns the page
    The BlackBerry News Feed application for BlackBerry smartphones was introduced by RIM last year, and customers that use the BlackBerry news feed apps on both their BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and BlackBerry smartphone will have their subscriptions automatically brought over and synced up between their devices based on their BlackBerry ID.
    This application is currently available in the US and Canada, and will be available in other countries later this year.
