The BlackBerry® PlayBook™ Print To Go application is the medium to easily print to a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Print To Go enables the user to print from any application on a computer. This would simply replace paper and gives the user the ease of sharing and organizing printouts, make notes and comments in one centralized location. The Print To Go application is a free built-in application on the BlackBerry PlayBook and enables the user to leverage our existing server infrastructure as a new value added service.

Print To Go on the BlackBerry Playbook acts as a repository of documents printed to it from a computer. The documents here are stored in a calendar type format.

The Print To Go application on the computer is installed as a printer. Once installed, and when attempting to print any document, the Windows Print dialog box will have options to choose Print To Go as a printer. The user would then be prompted for their BlackBerry® ID login which is assigned to the BlackBerry PlayBook they are trying to print to, followed by the pairing password from the BlackBerry PlayBook.
