Both BlackBerry smartphones and iPad tablets can store contact information, calendar entries and notes on the device.

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.
