The Unlocked BlackBerry Phone PlayBook is a device that has been highly anticipated by tech enthusiasts across the country since it was first announced. Today, at the TabLife conference it was announced that they will be offering the new tablet that is manufactured by Research In Motion, the BlackBerry Playbook. The announcement came from David Neale who is the Vice President of their Special Projects committee. During the conference they took some time to show off the features of the PlayBook and give those in attendance a good idea of what the tablet is capable of and how it will instantly become a direct competitor of the iPad.
A video of the demonstration is supposed to make its way online soon. The PlayBook is being marketed as a tablet device for professionals on the go who need the business flexibility that is not offered by the iPad and other competing devices. It will have a 7 inch LCD display, which is slightly smaller than some of the competing tablets that will be making their way to the market in the coming months.
The PlayBook processor will consist of a 1 GHz dual Core Multiprocessor along with 1 GB of ram installed. The device will reportedly cost less than $500, which would make it noticeably cheaper than some of the alternative devices that have been announced over the course of the last few months.
The PlayBook is a device that many experts think will be the first one to truly rival the iPad, iphone 4 unlocked and gather its own following. It is rumored to feature a number of additions that have been requested by iPad enthusiasts since the device was released including a USB port to allow for quicker transfers. Many experts have predicted that they believe that the phone will be able to live up to the hype based on the information that has been made available both by Research in Motion and by BlackBerry.
