Both BlackBerry smartphones and iPad tablets can store contact information, calendar entries and notes on the device. Both also come with synchronisation programs that allow you to sync the device with the contact, calendar and notes applications on your computer. If you wish to sync a BlackBerry with an iPad, you can do so in a few simple steps by using the BlackBerry Desktop Software to sync the BlackBerry with the computer and then using the iTunes application to sync the iPad with the computer.
