OverDrive Media Console is now available for BlackBerry PlayBook.

With the launch of PlayBook OS 2.0, OverDrive Media Console now allows users to access digital titles on their BlackBerry tablets. The OMC app for PlayBook has the same great functionality seen on other platforms, allowing you to check out and download titles right from your device. All you have to do is make sure you install the most up-to-date firmware on your PlayBook, search for ‘OverDrive’ in App World then install the app. You’ll be listening to audiobooks or reading eBooks in no time.

PlayBook OS 2.0 makes the BlackBerry tablet even more appealing than it was before. If you’re currently in the market for such a device, but are on the fence, the PlayBook is a solid choice. Priced around $200 to $250, this 7-inch tablet offers more features than much of its similarly priced competition. You get dual cameras (front and back), 16GB (or more) of storage and a beautiful screen.  It even comes with a neoprene sleeve!

Welcome to the family, PlayBook!

      Sorry, Terry. OMC for PlayBook supports MP3 only… ~Mike

    Almost all the audio books I download from library are wma with ddr. Are there plans to add support for wma to the overdrive app for the playbook? It would make the app exponentially more useful for me. Thanks
