iPad rival? BlackBerry PlayBook

By October 1, 2010 Highlights

We won’t know until next year whether it’s a legitimate contender to the iPad’s tablet throne, but we know this much: they definitely got the name right. The BlackBerry PlayBook ($TBA) is a new 7-inch touchscreen tablet aimed more at the business crowd, but packing plenty of widely-appreciated features like dual HD cameras, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, HDMI output, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 1080p video playback, 1024×600 resolution, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support, and Blackberry’s new — and yet unproven — Tablet OS.
