Yesterday at RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook event in New York, I finally got a chance to play around with the BlackBerry PlayBook. I was anxious to play Need for Speed, which comes preloaded on every PlayBook. Ronen from BerryReview was nice enough to record my gameplay, along with some other multitasking distractions which included some video playing and shuffling through apps.
The whole nice idea about the PlayBook is apps still running in the background when multitasking. My issue was seeing Need for Speed still running in the background actively when switching to another window. You could be in the middle of a race and want to switch to your BBM or email then by doing so, the game would still run and you’d lose. Boo. Luckily, we found out you can customize multitasking how you want. The game can automatically pause if you’d like when switching around. That applies for video players as well. Pretty cool!
