As you may know, we are in the midst of the Small Business Influencer 2011 nominations. There have been so many incredible leaders, gurus, journalists, and corporations that make a huge impact on the small business community nominated already, and we still have a few weeks to go.

About the BlackBerry Playbook
The Playbook is BlackBerry’s new tablet. It is under a half-inch thick, and has a 7-inch display. The Playbook uses WiFi to connect to the Internet. It is not necessary to have a BlackBerry smartphone to use it, but if you do, there is a unique Bluetooth connection called the BlackBerry Bridge that allows you to display your BlackBerry smartphone screen on the Playbook, too.
