RIM has just announce their new tablet. The Blackberry Playbook.
Specs listed on Crackberry.com:
- Measures 5.1″x7.6″x0.4″ (130mm x 193mm x 10mm)
- Weighs less than a pound (approximately 0.9 lb or 400g)
Every manufacturer and their mother are getting into the tablet foray. It looks like the iPad won’t be alone any longer. Samsung and their Galaxy Tab will also be hitting state side soon as well. So far the Blackberry Playbook has already exceeded my expectations, which wasn’t all that much to begin with as RIM is known to be very conservative with their Blackberry phones. That’s why I’m surprised by their hardware specs, and I’m very interested in their new QNX OS. RIM will need this device to be impressive (and magical) if it wants to bite a chuck out of the iPad’s market share. Yay, for competition!
