Maxis Blackberry Playbook Exclusive Bloggers' Workshop

Maxis Blackberry Playbook Blogger Workshop
exclusively for nuffnang's bloggers

Just as you seen on the newspaper, or on any other advertisement, either from Maxis or nuffnang, or on the internet that Maxis is launching the Maxis Blackberry Playbook in Malaysia! I was lucky enough to be invited by nuffnang for a workshop on Maxis Blackberry Playbook exclusive for nuffnang bloggers!
Being "exclusive bloggers", of course we would have our own "exclusive bloggers land-yard with our name on it"! That's being "exclusive" right?! haha =P

I'm sure you're getting all hype up to know more about the Maxis Blackberry Playbook right?! because that was exactly how I felt while waiting....
So, as seen as the picture below, the "Fun Begins Here"!

So after waiting for a bit, we were then brought to the upper floor of the hall to another room
"exclusive room" of course =P

After the representative from Maxis Blackberry and nuffnang gave an opening speech, the workshops begins!!!

So each table were given a Maxis Blackberry Playbook!
check it out! look at the design and all, how sleek and cool it is right!
I think it looks professionally cool!
MUA with the Maxis Blackberry Playbook! Do I look "professionally cool" after holding it ha?! haha =P

So, after exploring a bit by ourselves .. we were then taught by THE professional of Maxis Blackberry Playbook on understanding of the Maxis Blackberry Playbook better and of course how to use it up to its actual true potential of the Maxis Blackberry Playbook!

One of the best feature that I found on Maxis Blackberry Playbook is definitely the Blackberry Bridge

Ok, so let me explain what is Blackberry Bridge. Blackberry Bridge is simply a software/apps design to sync whatever it is in YOUR Blackberry into the Maxis Blackberry Playbook. Meaning, once you switch on the Blackberry Bridge Apps on your Blackberry device, it would automatically sync all the information into your Maxis Blackberry Playbook!
Just like the picture above! Whatever is in your Blackberry, it will be in your Maxis Blackberry Playbook!
and the best part is, you could go online using your Maxis Blackberry's Data Plan via your phone to your Maxis Blackberry Playbook. It simply means that, once you switch on your Blackberry Bridge Apps, you can go online surfing Facebook or Twitter anywhere you want with your Maxis Blackberry Playbook! Now you do not have to own 2 different plans just to use your Maxis Blackberry Playbook!

One question was asked during the workshop:
So what if I lost my Maxis Blackberry Playbook, then all my private information in my Maxis Blackberry Playbook would be accessible by the "new owner"? Isn't that really dangerous?
The Blackberry Bridge Apps works uniquely. What do I mean by "uniquely"? Meaning, once the Blackberry Bridge Apps is turned off/disconnected, whatever information which was synced from your Blackberry device would all not be accessible anymore. Hence, without your Blackberry device being connected to your Maxis Blackberry Playbook via the Blackberry Bridge Apps, it would just be a simple tablet without any of your personal information and details in it.
So no worries, all your information will be locked to your Blackberry device via the Blackberry Bridge Apps

So after all the serious information about Maxis Blackberry Playbook, it's time to have some fun!
We were introduced to the game called "Need for Speed" on the Maxis Blackberry Playbook.
It was seriously impressive.
Just check out the graphics! no kidding yo! XD

and of course to kick-start this awesome gaming experience, nuffnang and Maxis Blackberry made a competition out of it!

see! everyone getting all intense on it!

check out the kiasu's faces all over! haha

and for people who are NOT THAT GOOD in games, Tetris is the game to conquer!

As I said, I'm not good in games...check out the score below, I was beaten FLAT, and I mean FLAAT! haha 4841 and 2548! see told ya! haha

and that was it! after all the serious and funs for few hours
so here's the nuffnang bloggers with their Blackberry's goodies bag in the Maxis Blackberry Playbook Workshop!
spot me? =P

After the workshop, decided to walk around the exhibition for the Maxis Blackberry Playbook
haha, yes! I still couldn't get enough of the Maxis Blackberry Playbook! =P
check out the picture on the right, you could actually plug your Maxis Blackberry Playbook to any of your television and make it multi-view to all your family or friends! How cool aight!
Just so you know, the Maxis Blackberry Playbook has a Full HD screen to make entertainment on it to be even more entertaining! =)
