Video calling is now a major trend in mobile devices and so the BlackBerry PlayBook wants it on board as well. It ships with both front and rear cameras, for just that reason. But it was assumed that the PlayBook would be using a third party app like Skype for video calling, but according to RIM, they will be releasing their own video conferencing app that will be launching with the tablet.
Aside from that, we don’t have any details on the app. We aren’t sure if it will be limited to BlackBerry PlayBook tablets or if it will show up on other phones and computers. The tablet will be arriving very soon, so we will learn more anytime now.
