Some sweet new PlayBook info was just dropped into our tip’s email account, something a lot of us have wanted to know since day one… PlayBook notifications. Last week we got a glimpse of how the PlayBook was going to let us know about a low battery, but what about a new email or BBM?
Well, according to this PlayBook documentation the notification system will work similar to the low battery indicator but with one twist. When a notification is available the top left or right corner will illuminate and then it’s up to the user to view or dismiss it. The cool thing is if you chose to look at the message or just see what the notification is all about all you have to do is swipe in from the top left or right of the PlayBook into the centre, no annoying pop-up like on other tablet devices!!
There seems to be a few more weeks left until we get our hands on the BlackBerry PlayBook, and I’m sure we’re about to learn a lot more quite quickly.
