How to give presentations with a PlayBook

RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet makes a mean little tool for giving PowerPoint presentations. CNET's Donald Bell shares some tips and tricks for presenting with the PlayBook.


One of the coolest features of RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is how well the device works as a multimedia presentation tool. With its integrated HDMI output and suite of Documents To Go apps, you can deliver high-resolution presentations with ease.
