RBS Marketplace PlayBook app
Investment banking intelligence mobilised...
Investment bank RBS Global Banking & Markets has been showing off a new version of its BlackBerry PlayBook tablet app for registered users of its investment intelligence service, RBS Marketplace.
The RBS Marketplace app first launched back in April, in time for the PlayBook's US release, and will shortly be available for the first time in the UK when RIM's tablet hits Blighty's shops next week, on 16 June.
While RBS customers can access research articles on their smartphones - typically via email as PDFs - the company reckons tablets offer a better environment for reading long articles. "Some of the research articles are a couple of hundred pages long - you're not going to read that on your smartphone," said a company spokesman.
