    So... I just got the Desktop Manager Beta Mac version for PlayBook, opened it and everything, synced it, and then saw that the PlayBook does indeed have its own unique PIN (I attached a pic)

    Do you think this is proof that there will one day be a native BBM for PB?

    it may, but RIM uses that PIN when you call them for tech support.

    It has been known for a while that the PB has a PIN and has been discussed quite a bit. You can find it on your PB as well by going to options > about > hardware.

    RIM appears to be moving towards using your BBID (an email address) rather than PIN anyway, so the question is likely a bit irrelevant (as is, I suspect, any concern about posting your PlayBook PIN).

    You can use the PIN to video chat with other playbook users.
    P.S. Tampa here.

    Umm... no, you can't. At least, I can't. When I enter a PIN while adding a contact it doesn't allow me to finish... the button just says Cancel unless I enter an email address.

    Ah I never tried it. Just figured that's how it was done. Thanks for clearing it up. Guess it is fairly useless then.

    I've chatted with others by entering their PlayBook PIN into the video chat app before. It does work.

    I don't think you can save the PIN into a contact entry, though. I haven't tried that yet.
