blackberry playbook

blackberry playbook: Nowadays at Research in Motion's yearly Blackberry Developer Conference, CEO Mike Lazaridis announced the company's new tablet -- the PlayBook. The tablet will use an OS created by the recently acquire QNX  (just as we'd heard preceding to the announcement) called the BlackBerry Tablet OS which will offer full OpenGL and POSIX support next to web standards such as HTML5 (which is all tied into RIM's new Web Works  SDK). Lazaridis was joined on stage by the company's founder, Dan Dodge, who said that "QNX is going to allow things that you have never seen before," and added that the PlayBook would be "a hard to believe gaming platform for publishers and the players." RIM also touted the PlayBook's ability to handle Flash content via Flash 10.1, as well as Adobe AIR apps. The new slate -- which Lazaridis described as "the first professional tablet" -- will sport a 7-inch, 1024 x 600, capacitive multi-touch display, a Cortex A9-based, dual-core 1GHz CPU (the company calls it the "fastest tablet ever"), 1GB of RAM, and a 3 mega pixel front-facing camera along with a 5 mega pixel rear lens (and yes, there will be video conferencing). There was no mention of aboard storage capacity during the important, though the devices we just spied in our eyes-on post are labeled 16GB and 32GB on their back panels. The PlayBook will be capable of 1080p HD video, and comes equipped with an HDMI port as well as a micro-USB jack, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooh 2.1. The devices clocks in at a svelte 5.1- by 7.6-inches, are only 0.4-inches thick, and weigh just 400g (or about 0.9 pounds).
