Just like for Mother’s Day, RIM has some ideas for gifts for Dad. Father’s day is June 17th this year, plenty of time to find a gift.
hit the break for gift ideas
For busy dads and hard-working grads, RIM offers a complete selection of mobile tools to help them be more productive and have fun too. This season’s ultimate portable companions feature wireless music streaming, a multi-tasking tablet and numerous apps to boost productivity. Please let me know if you’re interested in hi-res images or additional info, or I can follow up shortly.
With the BlackBerry® Music Gateway, music loving dads and grads can wirelessly stream tunes to their home or car stereo from a BlackBerry smartphone, BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or a Bluetooth enabled device with a simple tap to their NFC enabled BlackBerry or pairing via Bluetooth connectivity. They can sync their personal music library, purchase albums and songs from the BlackBerry Music Store or stream music from the many BlackBerry App World music apps like BBM Music, Pandora or Slacker, for a rich multimedia experience. Once connected to the BlackBerry Music Gateway, they can control their selections from up to 30 feet away from the stereo, without missing a beat. The BlackBerry Music Gateway begins shipping in June and will be available on www.shopblackberry.com for US$49.99.
The slim, sleek and ultra-portable BlackBerry PlayBook tablet fits in a jacket pocket and is powerful enough for the next adventure – whether keeping up with post-grad coursework, a new job or busy travel schedule. Equipped with enhanced communication tools built in, including calendar, contacts and messages, dads and grads will always be at the head of the class. The PlayBook’s high-performance multi-tasking capabilities make it easy to watch a movie, play a game, browse the web and stay on top of email all at the same time.
The PlayBook’s ever-expanding app library offers many apps perfect for busy dads and grads like Evernote, which synchronizes notes, ideas and more from a BlackBerry to the Web or computer desktop; and Blaq for the ultimate Twitter experience. Your favorite dad or grad can also enjoy out of this world fun on the PlayBook with Angry Birds Space and the adventurous Machinerium.
The latest BlackBerry 7 smartphones help dads and grads get more done in less time. Apps like BlackBerry Traffic ensure they’re not late for a job interview or family dinner by providing an estimated time of arrival, alternate routes and stress-free navigation. And when they’re too busy to call, the newly updated BBM quickly shares voice notes, messages, pictures and status updates, with the added benefit of knowing when the message was read. Not sure which app they need most? The mobile gifting platform allows BlackBerry users to gift apps to each other through BBM.
