Posted by at 2:20 pm on January 31, 2011

RIM today pushed the business side of the PlayBook in a demo video (see below) The tablet can pair with a BlackBerry phone via Blutooth to get push e-mail in real time. The clip also showed checking Office documents using a third-party app and viewing controllable presentations with SAP’s BusinessObjects Explorer.

The clip also shows multitasking and that the tablet could juggle all three tasks plus a video at the same time. Unmentioned in the video is that the PlayBook won’t handle mail independently and will need a BlackBerry phone nearby just to get mail outside of the web until a later software update.

RIM still hasn’t said when the PlayBook ships, but the device is unofficially due in March.
