Research in Motion’s BlackBerry phones are known for their business features including push email and strong calendar and contact apps. Unfortunately the BlackBerry PlayBook won’t have any of those features at launch. Instead, you’ll be able to connect the tablet to a BlackBerry phone to share your calendar, email, and contact data. That means if you pick up the PlayBook and don’t have a Blackberry phone you’ll probably need to rely on third party apps or web apps for those features… at least at first.

But it looks like RIM will eventually get around to adding native email, calendar and contact apps. CrackBerry has obtained a PlayBook FAQ from a recent Verizon event, which says those features will be available in the future.
