Zinio magazine app to rock BlackBerry PlayBook like a hurricane in mid-March
Zinio's magazine app has certainly made the rounds -- Android slabs, the Kindle Fire, the iPad and even the ill-fated TouchPad have had their shining moment with the digital service -- but months of "consideration" for their platform have BlackBerry PlayBook owners feeling left out in the cold. Zinio, however, recently tweeted that a PlayBook app is coming "real soon," and one prospective customer decided to fish for more details by taking drastic measures: good, old, greasy bribery. The enterprising Twitter user promised to subscribe to more magazines if the company would tell him when the app is coming out and, well, it actually worked. PlayBook owners can apparently expect to read mags like Rolling Stone, Maxim and The Economist via the Zinio app by "mid March." Coupled with the release of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 on Feb. 21, it seems like RIM's faithful tablet owners are finally starting to get some much needed attention.
