RIM BlackBerry PlayBook
Due out later this year, the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook
tablet has a 7-inch screen to rival that of the Samsung Galaxy Tab
. It packs a dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, front- and rear-facing cameras, 1080p video recording, a micro-USB port, and a micro-HDMI output into a 0.38-inch-thick package. It will link directly to BlackBerry Enterprise Server
and support multitasking for users seeking a productivity tool. But an app ecosystem, multiple ports, Flash 10.1 support, and hardware-accelerated video indicate a new, non-CrackBerry target audience.
