BBC News and BBC iPlayer web icons (shortcuts)are now available on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
The BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is currently being rolled out across 16 markets worldwide including the UK, Hong Kong and Australia.
From 20 July 2011, all new BlackBerry PlayBook tablets will come with the BBC web icons pre-installed. Existing users will be presented with a software update notification on their status ribbon or can access the update at any time from the Software Updates item in the Settings Menu.
The BBC News shortcut will link to the desktop version of the BBC News website, and the BBC iPlayer shortcut will link to a browser optimised for portable devices.
Earlier this year versions of the BBC News application for Apple and Android devices and a version of the BBC iPlayer app for Apple's iPad and Android mobile and tablet devices were launched in the UK.
Links open in a new window. The DTG is not responsible for the content of other web sites.
