New Tablet from BlackBerry: BlackBerry Playbook

Say hello to the BlackBerry Playbook, the newest tablet from Blackberry, with a target on iPad.

BlackBerry recently announced their new tablet, the BlackBerry Playbook.

It’s certainly stylish and fashionable compared to other tablet entries, such as the Motorola Xoom or the Samsung Galaxy Pad, which we’ve seen lately and more importantly, it’s the only tablet in the world with BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) and even its rival, the Apple iPad doesn’t have that.

They may be a bit late in coming out with a slate/pad/tablet, but BlackBerry’s Playbook may be the best of the bunch and will likely have android system for many applications. The device boasts several features unavailable on the market-leading pads.

In keeping faithful to their niche “professional” market, it boasts power, security, efficiency and manageability while still offering a breathtaking multimedia interface, true multitasking capabilities, a sleek Internet browser, video conferencing and, of course, the quintessential BlackBerry feature, BBM (Blackberry Messenger).

The icing on the cake for tech junkies is the fact that all these features are supported by awesome specs under the hood: 1-GHz dual-core processor, 1-GB RAM, symmetric multiprocessing, Wi-Fi and 3G access, dual-HD cameras, 1080p HD video support, micro-USB and HDMI inputs.
