RIM has apparently teamed up with fellow Canadian company, Polar Mobile, to develop ‘at least’ 100 apps for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Polar Mobile has a suite of apps developed for TIME, CBS, Bloomberg, and more. It is possible that as Polar Mobile begins moving into the tablet space it will bring these current smartphone apps to the PlayBook. Polar Mobile does not know which clients will want their apps brought to the PlayBook, but they intend to begin rolling out the apps by this summer.
“Tablets represent a massive opportunity for our customers to increase reach, drive engagement and create a new revenue stream,” said Kunal Gupta, Polar’s CEO. “We are excited to extend our platform to the PlayBook and believe it will be a key content-consumption device that publishers need to be on.”
