Poynt Confirms ‘Pairing’ is to Work for the BlackBerry Playbook

May 5th, 2011

Poynt Have you ever imagined the day when you can search and view results on the PlayBook while still using your BlackBerry, as well as calling businesses, adding addresses to the address book, mapping directions and add events to the calendar on your BlackBerry smartphone?

This idea has been realized according to Poynt’s announcement that a new update for their BlackBerry App has been released. The new version enables users to pair their BlackBerry smartphones to the BlackBerry PlayBook. Thus users can fully enjoy the convenience of viewing listings on the PlayBook while using the BlackBerry smartphone to interact with the search results, such as businesses, people, movies, events, restaurants, gas prices and weather information in their local area without leaving the App..

Simply by selecting the ‘Pair with PlayBook’ tab in Poynt on their PlayBook and entering their BlackBerry PIN#, users can successfully pair their BlackBerry smartphone with the BlackBerry PlayBook. A security code will then be given to enter under a ‘Pair with PlayBook’ menu item on their BlackBerry smartphones. Once the devices have been paired, they will remain paired until the users opt to un-pair them and users can search Poynt by using the enhanced PlayBook interface to call businesses and add listings to their existing contacts.
