RIM launches BlackBerry PlayBook
BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) has unveiled its new tablet computer BlackBerry PlayBook, which will hit the markets early next year taking on Apple’s iPad.
The PlayBook has a seven inch touch screen, half the size of the iPad, high-definition cameras in the front (3 megapixel) and back (5 megapixel) and weighs about 400 grams. It’s 10 mm thick and has a one GHz dual-core processor.
RIM, however, did not say how much the PlayBook would cost, but said it would be in the same range as the iPad, which starts at USD 499.
