I've experimented with the Apple bluetooth keyboard that came out with the iPads and it seems to work well with limitations on certain keys (ie. some keys like the volume and function keys just don't work). I'm still deciding whether it is really worth the investment...the keyboard is almost full size and is easy to type quickly on.
I'm having issues pairing my device (9320) with my new Blackberry Playbook. The software on my phone is 7.1 Bundle 2039. I can pair both devices together through Blackberry Bridge but it shows that I've recieved new emails but doesnt let me open them.
I paired the Playbook with a friends phone (9360) which operates on a different system 7.1 Bundle 1133. And this works fine and we can access the emails and the device and playbook work fine.
we play music out of the speakers all the time, and to be honest the speakers are really good for this type of device.But is there any speaker docks available? Would be great to have one that charges to. I'm in UK btw.Or does the rapid charger dock have a speaker/connection out to connect to some do speaker's ? If not what do people use?
I intended to use my Playbook as a presentation tool (instead of carting around a laptop meeting room to meeting room), but I cannot find a reliable means of connecting the mini HDMI output to a standard VGA projector.In my experience meeting rooms usually have an installed projector and a VGA cable ready to be plugged into a laptop. What I need is a cable to converts Mini HDMI to VGA (probably not a likely scenario), or Mini HDMI to HDMI (easy to find) then and adapter that converts the HDMI to a female VGA (just like the one on your computer)...has anyone seen or used such a set up?I don't need HD quality so I'm not worried about signal loss.
I bought the official Blackberry Playbook mini keyboard a few months ago. It worked once. Failed second time ( I assumed I hadn't charged it enough). Tried again recently, and it definitely isn't charging. No lights; no syncing; no pairing; no nothing. I've tried different chargers and different outlets, and the darned thing is dead. And, I am very certain it is not due to any product abuse, etc. It has just died. I either have a defective product, or is there some trick or reset button or some trick I need to know to charge this device? Or, have I just thrown away $120 on a piece of junk?
I bought this from Crackberry Canada last October. It stopped charging a while after (I think it's a known issue). It's been sitting in my closet since. Is there still warranty or some way of getting it repaired?
I have asked this a couplr of tyimes but have not received a reply that works. Can anyone tell me how to it it please?Transferring to my Curve required additional software from syncamatic , apparently theu don't have it for the Playbook and the desktop software doesn't do it, you can see contacts using BlCVKBERRY bRIDGE BUT HAVING TO CONNEcT EVERYTIME just to send emails to contacts is rediculous, there must be a way to do it...Please help. ( the manual is wrong there is no button to transfer contacts!
i just bought myself the blackberry-branded mini keyboard for the playbook. i know i could've gone with many aftermarket ones, but i didn't want the hassle of partial incompatibility. now this keyboard has a touchpad included too. i'm starting to get the gist of how to use one finger for left-click and two fingers for right-click, etc. but what i can't seem to get is how to text using the mini keyboard's touchpad. i've looked at several Internet videos, but i see it being used in a few of those videos but no idea how they do it. i suppose i could just bring my fingers upto the screen itself and just do it that way, but that sort of defeats the purpose of having a keyboard/pad.
