Gives it a huge edge for a iPad in my opinion.

Looks pretty awesome. Love the HDMI out as well as the flash capabilities. I'm not too familiar with the BlackBerry OS, but hopefully its easy to use. I wonder how much it'll be since they aren't offering any 3G, yet.

Just tell me what it does better than the iPad...that's all I need to know.

From online sources:

Overall, it looks like the new PlayBook might be offering just the options a lot of people who have snubbed the iPad in favor of a real laptop have wanted. Of course, the coming iPad 2 will be expected to have front and rear facing cameras for video calling as well, but we haven’t seen Apple officially announce the model yet. Furthermore, that huge 1 GB of RAM in the PlayBook is 4x of what the current iPad has. While I will expect the next iPad to have at least 512MB of RAM like the iPhone 4, it isn’t a sure deal yet. I also really like the microHDMI and microUSB support the PlayBook has.


Apple's iPad has the biggest screen here, a 9.7-inch LED with IPS technology (for a wider viewing angle) and a 1024x768 resolution. The BlackBerry has a smaller 7-inch screen, but the pixels are more densely packed to deliver 1024x600 (WSVGA) resolution. Both displays are capacitive touch screens with full multi-touch and gesture support.

The BlackBerry PlayBook has the most memory here, a full gigabyte compared to Apple's 256MB. When multi-tasking arrives in iOS 4.2 that quarter gigabyte may turn out to be a little on the low side.

The iPad doesn't have any cameras but the BlackBerry ups the stakes with a 3MP front facing and a 4MP rear facing camera that's capable of 1080p HD video recording.


Unless there's an outbreak of silly pricing BlackBerry's PlayBook is the best tablet here - on paper, at least. It has the best processor, the most RAM, the best cameras and the newest operating system.

iPad killer? No. More people will still get the iPad than this I'd bet, just because it's Apple. Still pretty dope though.
