Video calling and a dedicated Facebook app for the Blackberry Playbook coming tomorow

It’s great news for future Playbook owners as the “world’s first professional-grade tablet” will be getting the mandatory (nowadays) video calling feature, available tomorrow via an OTA (over the air) update.

The new video chat app on the Playbook will include video calling functionality, naturally, support for both front and back cameras, VOIP support and video services via your Blackberry ID.

In addition to the video-calling functionality, the Playbook is also getting a dedicated Facebook app next week. That’s great news and a move forward for the QNX platform, running on the Playbook. As with most new OSes out there, app support is limited at first. The important thing for a multimedia device, such as the Playbook, is to get the most important stuff checked.
