RIM Announces Their Professional 7-Inch Tablet With Dual-Core CPU, the PlayBook

Labels: , , ,

RIM is holding their DevCon event right now and they have just jumped onto the tablet wagon. Dubbed the PlayBook (slightly better than BlackPad or SurfBook), this tablet sports a 7-inch display (1,024 x 600 resolution), an ARM Cortex A9 dual-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, an e-reader feature, microHDMI / microUSB ports, 1080p video playback, a front-facing 3MP HD camera, a rear-facing 5MP camera, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth support, a 9.7mm thin body, HTML5 / Adobe Flash support, DLNA, BlackBerry App World access, and an OS made by QNX. This WiFi-only tablet (for now, at least) will, of course, "pair up" with your BlackBerry and will be available in early 2011. They're calling this the "first professional tablet" and it looks like it actually has some potential! Check out the video below if you're interested. As of right now, the price, battery life, and internal storage are still unknown.
