At MWC 2011 we got up close with the BlackBerry Playbook which is RIM’s Tablet running on the BlackBerry Tablet OS (QNX) . You can take a look at the photos of the Playbook below and boy ! it was pretty small in person compared to the photos you might see on the internet.
The hardware was solid and pretty nice to grip. It was only the software which seemed new but multitasking rocked. Yet we are concerned about the no of apps the device will have at launch.It supports Adobe Flash and AIR.
It has a 7 inch display yet sports a 1024x600px resolution. 3MP Camera in the front.
5 Camera on the back
It’s light at little over 400 grams in weight
Power button , volume keys and play/pause button on top along with 3.5mm audio jack
Its 10 mm in terms of thickness
The microUSB port and micro HDMI port along with docking pins sit on the bottom
The PlayBook does look like one impressive tablet but one thing which left us puzzled is how the the device handles Email by pairing with your Blackberry via Bluetooth. It may sound great for security reasons but it would be crazy if the device can’t handle email without a BB !
