    A lot of people seeks a solution how to send their addressbook and/or calendars to PlayBook.

    There is several solutions : yahoo & gmail ; already described here several times.

    So I write this post to describe an other solution, most of for the people who doesn't want send their private data in the yahoo, gmail... world

    Beside of, it's a solution that I use, now, everyday and works well !

    I use the project OwnCloud. OwnCloud is framework written in PHP (In fact, it's a website)
    that you can install on your computer (on a personnal server).

    OwnCloud provides several cloud services : webdav (files storage), carddav (for addressbook) and caldav (for calendars).

    In using some workarounds that I have published on my blog, you can set your accounts on PlayBook and, so, sync your PlayBook with cloud.

    The last step is set the carddav & caldav services with your mail clients (thunderbird, evolution...) A lot of clients support carddav & caldav implementation.

    At last, your addressbook & calendars stay synchronize without nothing to do

    OwnCloud uses WebDAV protocol.

    PlayCloud 10 (for BlackBerry 10) implements and supports WebDAV.

    Beside of, I use OwnCloud to test my WebDAV implementation.

    Carddav doesn't work with current Playbook OS and Owncloud. One more reason to get BB10!
