RIM is beefing up the built-in apps in preparation for the BlackBerry PlayBook launch. In addition to the 7digital music story, the BlackBerry PlayBook will have BlackBerry Podcasts pre-installed at launch. Here is more info:

BlackBerry PlayBook users will be able to browse top episodes by download or search through 19 content categories, including sports, entertainment, business and more. BlackBerry Podcasts on BlackBerry PlayBook also features:

-Episode Preview ? Preview Audio and Video Podcast episodes before they are downloaded

-High Fidelity Viewing ? Video podcasts will be delivered in their native resolution (up to 1080p), allowing full realization of the BlackBerry PlayBook?s high fidelity 7-inch 1024x600 screen

-Delivery ? Subscriptions will update when the application is open ? then just click to listen or watch the latest podcasts

-Preferences ? Users can control their download preferences ? from number of episodes, to retain, to explicit content filters
