It is officially the BlackBerry PlayBook’s 1yr birthday today! The PlayBook was first introduced controversially on April 19th 2011, as it lacked essential native apps and even 3rd party apps when first born. Although, we must applaud it for maturing into a formidable contender in the tablet space.

We congratulate all those who have worked and are currently working on the PlayBook project. Your efforts have positioned the PlayBook well and set the stage for BlackBerry 10 and beyond. We’re excited for the future and many more birthdays. Leave your birthday wishes in the comments. Who knows who from RIM might see them!
